THEFT: Are culprits proud?

Years ago, my father went to fight in the war, he and thousands of lads. When I asked my old man why he had gone, he replied: “So we could have a good and fair life.”

I will never forget those words.

I just wonder if the scum who came some time through the night and stole the two large hanging baskets from our front door are proud of stealing a 78-year-old blind man’s plants.

My daughter and my wife made the hangers in the hope that I might see a bit of colour, or even smell them.

And they were really big ones.

If anyone has bought them, please get your money back and give it to charity.

Don’t lower yourself by buying off scum.
