Girl Human Speaks.
I have been having a lot of response from the signs. I have answered so many calls and received a lot of compliments on the approaches I have made on bring Mr. Z home.
Now, a new wrinkle has happened. 3 of my signs have disappeared. I had received permission to place them. One very curiously is located at the very spot a State Trooper hangs out all the time to catch speeders. The very same State trooper who told me "it better not happen again," just a few days ago while I was placing my signs along the highway.
Either it is a very guilty party or someone who has allowed his job to go to his head. I feel victimized. Several illegally placed signs were left behind and only mine were taken.
One property owner called me twice yesterday very upset that the sign was gone. I thought they may have placed it inside for safe keeping. They were taken off of private property. Maybe this person thought of a better place to display the sign. Could it be??
I'm so very tired. Yesterday, I had to shut off my phones to get some uninterrupted sleep. These poor people were so upset and kept trying to call me. I didn't answer. Now these people are asking for more signs that I don't have.
I have always been a responsible person trying to do all the right things, plus try in bring home Mr. Z. It just makes me ill to know that I'm now fighting the loss of Mr. Z plus a silent battle with a guy who seems to think we are playing a game. This has not shaken my faith. One rotten egg is not going to stop my Quest.
Well, I dare say that this has been a real journey for me. It has been an eye opener to a whole new realm of things. The journey is far from over. I am going to give it my all. One or two people are not going to deter me from my Quest. I have met so many genuine caring people. I'm not going to point fingers and put any heads on the chopping block over signs. It's just the principle as a whole. These signs are not cheap but I will find a way to get more.
All I can say it there are some people who need to grow up and act responsible. The other side is, there are a lot more people who are grown up and accept what's thrown their way. They move on to what is really important and leave behind the ignorant, dishonest, and uncaring.
So on with my quest!!!! Let's bring Mr.Z back to were he belongs his forever home Calico Junction.

Yes, You are doing a awesome job and you need a medal as it is hard and mentally draining. Good on you, I know there will be mean people out there and it's often young kids (or people that haven't grown up) that have nothing better to do with their life. Sometimes I would look at them and feel sorry for them as their lives won't be great they will be miserable. It has to be for them to act like that. Not to mention it's somethng they won't forget. One day they will be in your position in some way or another and it come back to haunt them. If it doesn't haunt them they will still be living their miserable life and it wouldn't have improved.
BUT then as you mentioned there are some really lovely people out there, you learn a lot about your neighbourhoon and I think it's such a lovely warm feeling when you know total strangers are behind you trying to help. There really is so many nice people around. I was shocked when I found people had done their own door knocking for me, wow!!! They had food out and called for D every morning. These were people I didn't even know. I did take packets of biscuits around to thank them. But I couldn't believe how nice they were. Hopefully I'm a better person from it too.

Girl Human has been keeping all the names and phone numbers of the people who have called with info/questions etc: so when the time comes I can call and give them all the good news. I like the biscuit Idea but I'm an awful cook.
You are so amazing. I'm sorry some people are being mean. I don't understand people. I'm still purring that Mr. Z comes home soon!
We know we had somethin' going on with a person who kept takin' signs from one place, mom just kept puttin' up more, but we made ours so they weren't so expensive. Make some signs outta colorful paper put over styrofoam (mom used insulation sheets cut up), the put packing tape all over your poster to make it water resistant. We put some in with wooden stakes, others taped em with packing tape to poles. Mom says look up that trooper - get his badge number (or car number) and call his boss. Not right to be takin' things off private property. My dad says to find him and give him a bag of donuts so he becomes yur friend. When I was missin' the local police had an APB on me - my picture was in their cars an' everything. But local police are nicer than state ones. So glad there are good people helping, that can give new energy, too!!
I'm truly sorry for this I hope he comes home safe and sound!
