do you remember the disappearance of ashton's green wagon?

though it never returned,
this purple one arrived in its place,
dug out of a basement, cleaned, and repainted
by someone who saw the opportunity to balance a wrong with a right.
(chase street, brattleboro, vermont)

One good turn... Every good boy deserves a good wagon, even if it's purple.

Green? My memory must be dimming since I recall only the red wagons. The new purple paint job is very fetching!

Could signal the demise of the red wagon.

I do remember when some sneaky thief took off with the wagon...

How nice to have it replaced by a Good Samaritan.

Must be other nice people in Brattleboro, too!

Other than you.

Cute photo with the unusual wagon and bicycle.

I think my wife must have wished her wagon as a child was this color, and that is how we ended up with her choice of some plum colored walls in our house.

Oh, happy day for Ashton! A wagon of many colors.

Well I love the new purple wagon and what a sweet story!

So nice of someone to step up and do a good deed. I'm sure Ashton appreciated it. I personally like the color...hope Ashton does too.

I like the wagon and bike composition. Kid transportation, recycled and renewed.

I had to go look at the posts I missed and I found this one so sweet I just had to write my comment here.

I just saw a trailer for Sucker Punch, which will come out next year, and Brattleboro features prominently in the name of the mental institution. But I guess if one were to retreat from the world and heal, there's no place as peaceful or beautiful to do so.

The movie looks like a shallow adventure, but fantastic production design and great fun. :)

I love stories like this one . . . makes my heart smile. I can't help but wonder if you might know more about the basement it was found in ??
