I Join the Good Citizen Corps

There are those who clean the roadsides, there are those who support charitable endeavors and community work generally, and there are those who supply tails when in desperate need.  I belong to the latter group.

This morning, Ed was walking down Benson to the East.  When he passed Drewhenge, he looked in to see how Scarlett O'Holstein was doing and noted that she appeared to have a sign on her backside.  Approaching more closely, it appeared that Scarlett had not only had a dye job (black) on her formerly green and red spots, but that she had also added a smart saddle and lost her tail.

He came home and told me this sad story and we immediately looked into our tail material supply and spent the next 45 minutes knitting up a new tail of various mingled colors.  Unfortunately, he failed to tell me that she had lost her red and green spots, so her new tail has those colors even though she no longer does.

We returned before noon to attach the tail.

Good Citizens all around.
