This morning on the drive to work, we saw a pile of someone's things on the side of the road where normally we would not expect to find such things. Among them was a small stuffed lion. I decided that we would go back after work and save it. Tonight when we went back, the lion was gone though the bulk of the things remained.
Obviously I am a mess of emotions. On the one hand I am upset that I was not able to bring the lion home as expected. On the other hand I am delighted that someone besides me saw fit to rescue the lion.
Maybe I will go to Toys R Us this weekend and buy a stuffed lion.
