Eh scuzzbag who stole the paintings from the restaurant where I left them briefly. They were for my mother’s 80th birthday. Why did you do this? Please take them back to the restaurant–I won’t call the authorities, I just want my pictures back. One was a painting of an Irish shepherd with sheep and a boy and a girl walking in a green meadow. The other was of a mermaid under the water. Please return them!
