Re: I need my garden!

Idoubt $700 worth was uncollected.  If so, she's a couple cookies short of a
box herself.
If it's the other case....
I've never understood why "trustworthy" people "borrow", but I frequently
see township trustees and small NPO bookkeepers reported for embezzling.  At
the company I worked for, the owner originally had a partner and they were
both in Sertoma (a NPO that provides hearing aids for kids)  Ron had bought
Tony out after he found Tony was playing funny with the books, but they were
still both in Sertoma.  Every year they had a casino night fundraiser and
guess who was in charge of tickets.  They never got the $2000 back from
Tony, now a financial advisor; just kicked him out. They didn't want the
publicity.  Can you imagine?  Stealing from a charity? Stealing from little
kids that can't hear?
