Yard Sale Theft

The Yardsale Gods have been angered. This article was in our local newspaper the other day (our local newspaper only comes out twice a week). The Yardsale Gods are now after the above suspects and one way or another, sooner or later, they will be punished for their evil deeds. But geez, you'd think the local paper would at least say what town this occurred in.

I went out yardsaling yesterday and of course, bought some stuff. Nothing major. I was home by 9:30. I stopped by the local big dump to recycle my newspapers and saw these turkey vultures eying me. I've been there and saw the mega sized seagulls picking around but they must have the afternoon shift and the turkey vultures work the morning shift. Icky. I normally go to the smaller recycling center where I don't see flying animals but yesterday this location was more convenient to me.

Then driving out of a neighborhood wide yardsale (there were exactly 2 yardsales) I spotted some deer. Only got a picture of one.

There was a posting on Craigslist this week from a local woman who had some stuff stolen from her yard sale. What's the world coming too?

I ended up at one of those "neighborhood" sales with only two houses participating yesterday as well. What a bummer! Fortunately the other neighborhood sales I hit more than made up for it!

Chris, the yard sale theft occurred south of Prince Frederick. I stopped at that sale (I know the people that were holding the yard sale), and they said the items totaled over $100 (big ticket, multiple items). They described the people and the vehicle to me, and I told them I would watch for them as I continued to go to other yard sales that Saturday. Of course, I didn't see them, and they didn't get the tag number of the vehicle.
It is a sad commentary when people would stoop to this; I hope that there is divine retribution somehow for this.
