There is a lot of unseen wildlife around the city. Possums, and raccoons... all of them are bandits.

LOL. I spoke of him in a thread months ago. He is a neighbor who constantly wears the beret. I thought that meant he was arrogant or gay. Somebody filled me in on the meaning of berets. Someone also suggested maybe he was bald.

I finally saw him without his beret. He is in fact bald. He and his wife didn't take kindly to someone parking in front of their house. They left a note which told us to make sure we don't park there again.

Sorry about the peaches, that is frustrating, no matter human or animal. lol My peach tree has a boat load of delicious white peaches every year. =) Can you put some type of netting over it? Not sure if that would keep the critters out though.

As for note guy, are people assigned spaces? If it's just a road, I'd be tempted to park there everyday from now on. lol The only time I've left a note is when after numerous times of me telling my neighbor, guests of hers STILL park between our drives & the area isn't big enough. They always hang about 2 feet OVER my drive. I'm a bad enough driver as it is. I just can't believe people would think that was okay. Sorry, ot'ing. lol

I just moved here, planted a new peach tree. The tree already came with peaches on the small tree. Within two days somebody had scaled a 6 foot fence to get into the yard and took all the peaches!
Are you sure it wasn't tree rats (the 4 legged kind, not a bunch of kids)? I am not saying it wasn't a human, but that would be pretty unusual. There are a few other 4 legged creatures that would love the fruit as well.

Regardless, this is sad, I can imagine how you feel.

We had the exact same problem when we lived in Arcadia and Glendora. In fact in Glendora we were lucky to get 1/2 doz Apricots each year.
