They Couldn't Steal my Joy!!!! {Just...my Purse...: ) }

Gold Rush...Day One...was Great!
Liz and Miss. Scarlett....slept in...I headed down...to finish unloading...
yesterday...morn...
I was Greeted First Off... by this Darling Group of Gals!
Barb...{The Sweet Heart...below...in the Pink} said...
"I know you are here alone... I'm here to Help you...Unload"...
{She follows my Blog...}
I about Fell Over....said...NOOOOO! Get Shoppin' Girl!
She...wouldn't take 'No'...for an answer....
She helped be muscle Furniture....and Heavy Totes....
 I said..."Girl...you are gonna be Hurtin'..in The Morn!"...
It didn't faze her...
She kept....Rockin' and Rollin'!
What an Angel...
Who...Does this...
But an...Angel...
?
oh my.... I saw so many faces...last night... as I was reflecting...on ..
ALL...
The Angels...in my Life...
I Tear Up...
just writing this...this morn...
{DANG!}
I was BUSY....yesterday....
Kept trying to get totes unpacked...but... had to help Folks... and couldn't get as much out as I wanted....
It wasn't until early afternoon.... I missed my Purse....
I had been on a Dead Run...first thing...yesterday...and probably set it.... out in the open...
I never think about it....
I trust....everyone...especially at Gold Rush....
Such...Good...People!
My Darling Customers...and Neighbors...{Friends} helped me Scour the Booth...
My Sweet Rochester Pals.... even watched my booth...and Climbed in the Back of the Big Truck....hoping it was tucked in there...while I retraced my steps...
{The Same...Group of Angels...that held my Hand.... when Justin's...Pups...were killed... a couple of years ago...and I got the news...at Gold Rush....Yes....Angels...}
I began...to realize... my Old Purse...was Gone....not misplaced...but taken....
Called...Kay...{The Lovely Gold Rush Promoter...} She sent Security....
He was Sweet!
After taking my statement....
he paused....
and said...
"I don't ever remember talking with someone who had just had their belongings stolen....and them being to...Calm...
and
Upbeat...."
I said...
Let me tell ya... about all....of The Blessings.....
Normally...I would have been putting my money....{sales}...into my purse....
For some reason...{and...I Never Do This...}
I kept packing my Old Flannel Shirt Packets...Full!
{I went from a C to a Dolly Parton....Double D!}
Liz....had taken 200. cash....from the Bank..for me...before we left home...
but...I had her...hanging on to it...
{I never do that...}
She also...had my Debit Card...I had given it to her....to pick up...Food....
{Why?...after all...she had...Cash...: ) }
My Little Kodak... that is Always in my purse....
but...not yesterday...: ) it was safe...in the Truck...
My Cell Phone...had been in my Purse...but...Wanda called...and instead of putting it back...I put it in my Flannel...Pocket...: )
I had spent...most of my Purse Cash...that Morn...
so...they may have gotten....50.00...
I don't have any Credit Cards....
{Bless their Hearts...if they should try and steal my Identity...: ) Their Credit Score...is probably...Much Better than Mine!  Shoot...maybe they'll Boost it...a  Bit! }
Here's what they did get....
My Patchouli....: (
{and...EVERYTHING...inside...my Orange...Barrel...of a Purse...is Incensed...with Patchouli!!!}
Mine and Mom's Check Books...which..I Stopped all Activity on...and Knew..my Last Check Number...I had written....: )Thanks to Patti { My Beloved...Fairfax State Bank!} She was ON IT!!!
{She was sad.....tho....they All know my Acct. Number by Heart.... : )
 She said.." You have had this account...for Years... now...we'll have to change...it..: ( "
my Target...Debit...{They don't have the pin...and I cancelled that...anyway...}
My License....I was nearly ready for a new one...: )
My Inhaler....
That...was Worrisome....
but...
somehow...
One...Turned Up....
{How...does THAT....happen...: ) }
Super Glue...and Feminine...products...I Hope...they combine...the two...along with my Lip Gloss...
Cigarette Butts....{I don't like throwing them...on the ground...: ) }
Tons...of  OLD Receipts...and Paper...notes...and scraps....
odd....single earrings....
My Purse...is a Danger...Zone!
NOBODY...wants to Go There!
I asked John...to get my Debit out of it the other day...
He said...
"I'm Not Putting My Hand...In There!"...
I wish...I could have seen the Face...of the person...who took it...
 You couldn't just Dump It....
It was Packed...like a Piggy...
who had just eaten....a BIG Supper!
so...they...Had...to Dig...
and Pull...
and...Pry...
oh yeah...
Bless Their Heart....: )
So...all in all..
It's All Good!
No...It's All....
GREAT!!!!
Blessings!
Angels...
oh my...
Love to Ya...
Hope to See You...Today...
Love...to ya...
