    Couple receives money from stranger after posting sign in yard about stolen bikes

    PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) When the bikes Dennis and Tamie Leporin bought themselves for Christmas to ride with their young son disappeared from their front lawn, the couple posted a sign to let the thieves know their disappointment.

    "I hope U crooks enjoy our bikes U stole; Merry X-Mas," the sign read.

    The next evening the couple heard a knock at their door and found an envelope with $200 inside. A pickup truck was driving away.

    "Inside was a note that read, 'For every crook, there are 1,000 good people'," Dennis Leporin told the Pensacola News Journal.

    "I thought it was awesome. We moved here from St. Louis, and folks just don't do that in St. Louis," he said.

    This is cool.

    A friend of mine bought a big ol' Detroit Tigers flag, and hung it from his front porch, during this last run for the pennant.

    Someone stole it.

    So he put a sign in his front yard that said "Thanks for stealing my flag, *******!"

    When he came home from work a few days later, it was back!

    I thought that was cool, too. Plus, if it was a kid, his parents just found out where the new flag came from!
