The Sorriest Thief In Westport

Just when you think you’ve heard everything, you read Debra Kandrak’s post on Facebook’s Westport Front Porch page.

And you wonder what the hell is going on in our world. She writes:

I am posting this because I cannot believe that someone would stoop so low as to steal plants from an Adopt-a-Spot.

I had 4 vibrant blue grasses recently stolen from my spot. An Adopt-a-Spot is town-owned, but maintained by town residents or local businesses. All plants, mulch and labor are borne by the individual or company. It’s time-consuming, but I consider it a labor of love because I believe in giving back to my community.

I find it shocking that in this well to do community someone would do such a thing. But I hold no grudges, because I believe in karma. What is disheartening to me is that these plants were given to me by my friend. They came from her garden when she moved to Florida, and were her gift to me.

I wish now that I planted them in my yard.
