Sad Ending

Our Thanksgiving celebration did have a sad ending.

Brother-in-Law came over that evening for leftovers, as he does every year. When he left, he took a small container of food with him, and set it on the seat of his truck, then came back in to tell Sweetie one more thing.

When he got back outside, someone had slashed two tires on his truck and, adding insult to injury, opened the door and taken the food.

We are still trying to work out how to get new tires for him.

  1. That is beyond uncalled for... I am so sorry to hear tht people can't even take one day off from being... Jerks. Name edited, I wanted to call them something worse. I guess, just be thankful all are safe. Crap.


  2. Thank you, Cat.

    I feel sorry for them that they are so hard and mean. It must be hard to live with you when you are that person.


Thanks for meandering by and letting me know you were here!
