I do like a happy ending...

I was delighted to receive a couple of messages today to inform me that my leather jacket had been returned to the pub. Sudden feeling of remorse from the woman we suspected? I'm afraid not. It turned out that a couple of the regulars who'd been enjoying their Saturday from an earlier start than we had, left early afternoon and grabbed my jacket on the way out thinking it was one of theirs. So on the slight chance they might stumble across these pages, a big thank you goes out to Daz and Tracy for returning my jacket intact.

Does this mean that I retract my comment about the original suspect? Let's not forget that she was thrown out of the pub for rifling through jacket pockets in the first place so although my personal property was just fine, it would be selfish of me to change my original statement. I'm just grateful in hindsight that I thought it best to abandon the vigilante expedition to recover the jacket otherwise the story could have had a completely different ending...
