THERE ARE STILL CARING PEOPLE IN THE USA..AND THEY SHOW THEMSELVES WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT

By
Real Estate Agent with Johnson Real Estate, Inc. RES.0761759

I went to a Farmer's Market in Durham, CT yesterday afternoon. I planned on blogging about that first, but this is going to be about a couple of honest and decent people that worked as vendors there.

All we hear about nowadays is negativity, high gas prices, political candidates and all the back stabbing that goes on.  Hardly ever do we hear about the nice things that people do.

At this farmer's market I was taking pictures and getting information about the different vendors.  At one booth, I took out my GPS from my purse to get out a pen and some paper.  I took pictures and made notes of names and businesses.   After an hour I left to head home.  Knowing my way back I did NOT use my GPS. It wasn't until I got home; I realized I didn't have it.

For all realtors out there, you know that we uses these on a regular basis.  This GPS I had, has Bluetooth capability so I can par my phone to it.  I can also voice activate it and have it call numbers if needed.  This Garmin just came out last year, and was VERY expensive.  The thought that I lost it makes me sick.

I was going crazy trying to remember where I left it.  I called the coordinator of the farmers market to see if perchance someone found it, and turned it in.  I'm laughing to myself thinking this is a small item and anyone who saw it would just pocket it.  People break into vehicles to get these, if someone saw this in the open, they would just take it. I might as well kiss it good-bye. 

This morning I received a call that it was found.  I left it at the Star-light Gardens booth (this is where you can get fresh herbs).  The owners Ty and Dave found it and wanted to make sure it got back to the rightful owner. 

I could not thank them enough for this kind gesture.  So, if you are ever in Durham, CT during the summer on Thursdays stop by the green and check out the Star-Light Garden booth.  Not only do you get the freshest of herbs, but also you are dealing with down to earth, and honest people.

They mentioned that they should have a herb stand up for the summer on Fowler Avenue, so if you are in Durham, CT during the week, check it out.  Not only will you get fresh organic herbs, but you would be dealing with down to earth and honest people. 

 Thank you Ty and Dave.

there really are more good than bad people out there- keep being one of the good ones and I will too.  glad to hear what was lost - was found (does that make it not really lost after all- just a cosmic gimmick to get you to blog?)  cheryl

Cheryl.  I am just thrilled that I got it back.  I felt like it was Christmas all over.  I'm now looking at it as the GPS was just carefully misplaced, in order to teach me a cosmic lesson.

George.. I did NOT go into Lino's but I did see where they are located.  I plan on going there now that I know where it is.

If you stop by the market next Thursday, you can thank Ty and Dave for me again for their thoughtfulness.

Debi, It blew my mind that something that small, and that expensive was returned.  I think we should all blog more about the positive things that are happening in the world instead of the negative.. this way we might make someone else's day and change the karma out there.
