someone had stolen my red petunia
and 3 of my flags from the front of the store?
waiting with bated breath
(where does that saying come from, anyway?! I'll google it!)
on what I discovered....
we were preparing the store
to be open for the parade.....
from 3pm to 4pm, and had given away
several dozen flags to customers in that hour.
the parade was about to begin.
A crowd on onlookers gathered out front.
upon our bench, and a couple of ladies
where sitting next to it. I assumed it was their petunia.
in our whiskey barrel.
I assumed a couple of customers
had stuck their free flags
there "to hold" while they watched the parade.
the crowd dispersed,
and the petunia and the two flags remained.
and returned the stolen items!
When, in fact, only 2 were.
people decide to "hide" the wrappers
(or just throw them on the floor)
from the complimentary mints
rather than placing them in their pocket or purse.
For goodness sakes, we have a trash can near the candy counter, and the coffee area!

And they are scented with a super spicy cinnamon scent!
Gosh, I wish we had smellaputers!!!!
Great for melting, or just scattering in a bowl of potpourri!
We also have candy corn tarts, crow tarts and pumpkin tarts!!!!
Just so delightful!
Fall is my favorite time of year!

If he ever wrote me a letter via email or text,
