A happy ending

Rioter John has a story and a picture for you all.

Enjoy.

So there I was a’wanderin’ gaily along the bike path from the old Dicko High to the Dicko Shops minding my own business when out the corner of the eye I saw a hand-painted sign tucked away mischievously at the bottom of a tree. Being curious of nature as well as of personality I backtracked to peruse the sign, and was quite pleasantly astonished to see the plaintive cry for help marked thereupon had in fact resulted in the missing bright red dog lead being returned, and most very tidily too I might add.

Perhaps there’s hope for some of the optimistic folk with For Sale signs in the back of their WRXs after all!

What’s Your opinion?

so does that mean the sign writer’s dog wasn’t on a lead while out in public…?

Perhaps it’s the lack of coffee for a Friday morning, but could someone please explain the logic behind the wording on the sign.
So the cyclist picked up the lead which the person knew they dropped (how else would they know it was theirs) then rode past [them] with it in hand? Am I reading that correctly?
If so, how did the person know it was theirs and why didn’t they just go and spend $10 on a new one? Also, why was the cyclist carrying around a dog lead the next day/trip – enabling her to kindly return it?

Actually I think it looks like a brand new one, and someone, other than the cyclist who had picked it up, put it there. To be nice. Probably not a cyclist then …

OK so female cyclists are OK then. ; ]

I wouldnt be so quick to jump to that conclusion. We’re talking a dog collar here and she probably doesn’t have a dog. If it had been a cashmere cardigan I doubt she would’ve returned it. Stay vigilant.
