Ironically our cantaloupe is about as far away from the sidewalk in front of our house as you can get. So it was a bit more of an obvious and brazen crime than if it was closer to the sidewalk. I like to try to get into people's heads. I wonder what went through the guys mind when he decided to steal our cantaloupe? Was it premeditated or a crime of opportunity?
I bet I scared the crap at of that guy! I bet he didn't think he was being watched. I guess he won't be come onto my lawn again or causing any trouble around my neighborhood any time soon. It's good for people to know that your watching. He probably thought nobody was home because it's a weekday and the afternoon. It's funny my uncle asked "Don't people pick things from your garden since it's in the front yard and by a busy sidewalk?" I hope we don't need to have a plan to protect our garden from people too. That's just sad.
