I have met the thief and it is I...uh..me..

..isn't that some sort of quote.."I have met the enemy and the enemy is I"..or me..or us ??

So, yeah..I am the neighborhood thief. 

Cherries.



Yeppers..full, round, sticky, red and ...abandoned.

"For Sale" house..vacant..and no fence.

Come on..no fence??

Don't judge me. 

I even had a split moment of clarity on Friday and asked the question of ethics on Facebook.

Yeah, 'cos we all know how totally upstanding and ethical everyone of Facebook is..it's the bastion of civility and ethical-ity..ethical-ness, ethicalnicity right?

So it ended up a crime of opportunity..well, 'opportunity' can be subjective here..I mean I sorta had to drag the pups to go that way..

However..I have just one word to day....
SCORE!!!



Now, if we weren't on "a good healthy and intelligent eating plan/lifestyle" I would totally {learn how to} make a cherry pie...

Well, at least it wasn't Sunday...  I really don't think it's a good idea to steal on Sunday...

"Life is just a blow   BOWL..of {stolen} cherries"

EDITED: Thank you,  Aunt Amelia , for letting me know ...

Can't let them go to waste right? By the time someone buys the house, the cherries wouldn't be any good anyway!

HAHA, you did it! And got away with it! Better you than me:)

If I liked cherries I'd grab one myself. So you go ahead and eat mine too. Or three or whatever....

You know, it's funny-- I was totally tempted to buy some cherries at the grocery store this afternoon....and now I really wish I did!

Enjoy yours :)

A vacant house with a loaded tree? It wasn't theft, it was sort of like milking the cow when the farmer couldn't get home in a snowstorm. The poor cow needs to be relieved and milk shouldn't go to waste. So, it was more like a good deed!

By the way, I don't know if this is the original source of the quote, but "We have met the enemy and he is us." is a famous caption from the Pogo comic strip years and years ago. (Remember Pogo?)

These were obviously orphaned cherries...they needed love and attention. I say you are charitable soul who rescued these waifs. Gorge on. I'm with you, whatever you do.
