Over the weekend Grandpa's green John Deere riding lawn mower was stolen -- it had been parked outside the garage due to Papa giving it the annual spring spruce-up before the start of mowing season. Plus, the little thieves helped themselves to whatever they could find in my sister-in-law's Jeep Wrangler.

They managed to swipe her Dumbo Dooney & Burke purse, her Ray Ban sunglasses, hearing aids and some bath and body works spray.

So, if you spot someone in Gleed riding a John Deere mower who's sporting Ray Ban sunglasses, has a Dumbo Dooney & Burke purse flung over their shoulder and who smells like they just stepped out of the bed & bath store, please notify the Sheriffs Office.
