Somebody Had To Do It....
You will notice from the photo that the candle is missing from the Green Parrot's Hurricane Preparadeness Kit.
I later recieved this note:
John, Sorry about ruining your nice little box without asking yout permission...but I really did try. I asked Pat if it would be OK to break the glass and take the candle to the grotto. He said "I'll ask John" and disappeared into the office. When he returned I asked him what you said and he said "I forgot to ask him"...so I broke the glass(PLEXIGLASS and it was difficult to break) and Di and I took it to the grotto (got there just as the priest was getting ready to lock it up) lit it, said a prayer and hauled ass home.
