This was the year I made two scarecrows for the contest: The Witch (the one hanging from the tree) and Johnny Appleseed. The contest ended AFTER Halloween, so I was supposed to leave them at the location of the contest Halloween night and pick them up the next day. So early on the morning of Halloween, I drove to steal my scarecrows. The judging had ended and I had already gotten my prize money checks in the mail. I didn't think anyone would mind. Well they did. I had a message on my machine threatening to take the money back!
How'd they know they weren't just stolen?
