Scott and I took a trip up to our 10 acres to see what was in bloom - mostly dogwood trees. Scott went in the old shack and found that someone had been inside and stole the metal objects that were in there and the old tub that was in the neighbors pasture near our property line had been stolen as well. I wish we had a way to keep people off our land but living an hour away makes that difficult. Oh well - most of what they took was stuff that we would have had to haul off ourselves but it would have been nice to have the selvage money for the metal for ourselves.
We are thinking about taking the truck up and pulling the old boat to the property line by the neighbors and blocking the old lumber company road in the hopes that they will stay out of there. We also need to hang a bunch of NO TRESPASSING signs. It's really sad that you can't trust people at all to leave whats not their's alone.

After that we went to World Market again since it was along our route home and I had earned $10 in Gourmet Rewards the other night PLUS a 12 oz. bag of FREE coffee. I also struck on a truly AWESOME deal... a new compost pail for just $2.99. The tag was for the actual pail but the price sticker they had applied was for a coffee scoop but they gave it to me for the price marked. I'm sure it was supposed to be more like $15.00 to $20.00. So we thanked them immensely and brought home our treasure.
The Manager didn't waste anytime pulling the other mislabeled compost pails from the shelf though so no one else will get this deal anytime soon.
