    I drove out to my usual place for walking my dogs, on the way passed a group of lads and didn't give it a thought - anyway when I got back to the car they had 'painted' my car with dog poo and damaged the windscreen wipers - I was upset and angry that someone would do that to me fortunately had kitchen roll in the car so cleaned it up best I could and then got the wipers fixed.
    Next day received a letter from the bank - uh oh!! no it was brilliant a cheque for 300 GB for discounts not applied to my home insurance back in 2004/07 so I think a little treat to me involving a trip to my favourite fabric shop will be in order (I won't spend it all on fabric though) so which is it to be - a mariners compass or something from the Bella Bella book - mmmm tough decision

    How awful. Why on earth would they want to do such a sick thing. I can't imagine anyone wanting to play in dog poo. I am sorry that this happened to you and that someone didn't catch the boys in the act.

    there are some really sick people around to do that sort of thing, and they just think it's funny. I hope they get WORMS and I hope someone does it to their pride and joy 1 day.
    Glad your day turned out better tho, have fun and spend spend spend.

    I'm so sorry that the first incident happened to you. Can you report it to the police? After all, if they did it to you, they might very possibly do it to someone else.

    I'm glad that your day got a whole lot better, because after that, you deserve it.

    Congradulations on the unexpected funds! Makes up for a lot of poo for sure! I really have no use for people who do not pick up after their dogs! Kids will play with anything nasty and the inconsiderate dog owners are just giving them ammunition.

    How awful. Dh always says - one boy, one brain, two boys, half a brain, three boys, no brain. I'm sorry you had to deal with this meanness. But what a nice surprise! Hope you have fun with it!

    First off, thats terrible what those boys did. What is the matter with people. Now...for the good stuff, not sure how 300GB is in US dollars but I say for sure...a trip to your favorite quilt shop is certainly in order. Enjoy that, you deserve it.!!

    Oh, Marriner's Compass for sure. I want to make that one so darn bad and I just don't feel I am ready for it and if you are, holy cats, go for it! Not a tough decision at all. Edie

    Thank Goodness this is the form of "entertainment and destruction" they chose to do. You and your dogs were unharmed. Yes, there are some sick people in this world --- and some people who don't have anything to do.... like work.

    Their turn will come, and just think you got two surprises that day. Enjoy the fabric, and just laugh at the other surprise. LOL

    Janedee, I'm sorry to hear what those punks did to your car. I am starting a venus rose quilt from the bella bella book and so far it hasn't been too hard. Picking out the fabrics is the hardest part for me. I hope you decide to make one as I'd like to see how the quilts turn out.

    Seems when a group of kids whether girls or boys get together so often their way of fun is hurting someone. If I had ever been part of a situation like this and my parents found out I would have been beaten. After working with middle age school kids and seeing many in trouble for one reason or another parents would come pick up the kids to take home. Many times these kids went out hitting and yelling at their parents. Parents are scared of their kids. We can only hope when these young kids grow up and own a car they reflect back on what they did.
