Now, I am not so sure I would have been aa nice as you about the "scrounger." That sort of thing really irritates me. Why do people think they have a right to take another person's belongings? I am glad your dh chased them off, but I really hope the word gets out that you are still in the vicinity and will be watching for thieves (there I said it).
