We ran into problems when a certain someone wearing a red coat decided to steal the leaves back and not keep them in the designated piles. Fortunately, I had my camera handy and the culprit was captured on film in the background.
In order to provide as much evidence as possible for the suspecting thief, we also got a few shots with the video camera. Little did we know he had an accomplice....

Okay, yes - he's not really on the same par as Bill Cosby - but I was thrilled just the same. Greg and I are HUGE fans. Here's the story -
The other evening Greg and I opted for 'take-out' after the kids bedtime. It's a favorite tradition of ours when the weekly budget has run too slim for a sitter. But because the layout and jurisdiction of this community is so incredibly inept, I had to drive to two different towns to get Greg's prime rib and my elegant shrimp, chicken with walnut dish (complete with special glaze and whole wheat rice). I rolled into New Canaan (Beck's hometown) around 7:30 and was walking towards Ching's when out walks a larger man hidden in deep coats wearing a baseball cap. Because I'm from the west - where people actually still smile at each other instead of avoiding eye contact - I smiled at him - and he smiled back. After 2 steps it hit me. I stopped, turned around - he was crossing the street and looked back at me and kind of laughed. And that's when I knew it was him. Of course, he was too far away for me to go over and introduce myself - tell him we love him, that we're thinking of moving to his town JUST SO WE CAN BE IN HIS WARD...Make me look like a complete psychopath. But I loved that he laughed - because I think he knew I had figured it out - in spite of all the layers.
And I LOVE the fact he was getting take out at the same place I was. He must have excellent taste!
