Strange return

Went out yesterday to look at a tractor. When I got back, there was a box sitting next to the door of the summer kitchen. In the box was the reloading tools, mould and dies for one of my rifles with an obsolete caliber. This stuff was stolen about a year ago when someone broke into our other house. I had just mowed the area around the summer kitchen Saturday evening. The box was not even wet with dew, which the grass still was.
I can't for the life of me figure this out. When they appear on e-bay, the loading tool alone goes for almost three hundred dollars. For the items to just show up, is almost as scary. Means the thief came back while we were out for an hour. Is it someone who can see when we come and go? Why didn't the dogs take a chunk of him?

I am happy to have it back, but......

..your brain is frying from such deep pondering..maybe the thieve was caught by a family member of his/hers and, either the thieve was made to give it back himself, or the relative did. Really screaminghollow..very strange.

I'll go back to cleaning the laundry room.

ooooOOOoooo! Has your brother had a life changing experience? And by 'brother', I mean anyone you know, family or friend! Whatever the outcome, I'd say a silent prayer that someone had a change of heart, and hope it is a permanent thing! Reading this made my day and somewhat renews my faith!

I'm thinking that your dog knows the person who returned the goods.
