About an hour after she'd left the store, Jeff, from Hardware, stopped over and said "hey, someone left you a late Christmas present in Hardware."
And he set down one of the cans of water based stain which had been mixed. It seems she changed her mind. Oops. And instead of dropping the can off at the desk and telling us she'd changed her mind, she pulled front 2 boxes of nails and hid the can behind them. Did she really think we wouldn't find them?
