One morning this summer, after a strong night-time thunderstorm, we woke to find an angel under the Tree That Owns Itself--the statue of an angel, that is. It had been stolen from a neighboring yard two years before. The owner was delighted to see it. "I always thought it would come back some day," he said. It is now back in its rightful home.
I wish the people who stole our Dearing Street Historic District sign about ten years ago would likewise be inspired to return it! We miss our sign.
