So why would anyone in Ocean Ridge steal a garbage can from the curb on a Tuesday morning?  To use as a punchbowl for a large party? To bob along the Gulf Stream?  To remove a neighbor’s garden cuttings? To develop a garbage can Hall of Fame?  It’s bizarre! 

                  I thought it might be returned after a couple of days or the next Tuesday, but no.  If someone wanted it that badly, I would have given them the lid as well. 

                  So, if you have, or see, see a lonesome topless square green garbage can, feel free to drop it off at the end of Engle — no questions asked!
