The Blue Toilet

I have a funny story you will all appreciate. I WISH I had the picture to go with it, but the picture is on my phone and I don't have a clue how to get it to the computer. So just imagine what it looks like.......
We are slowly re-doing our two bathrooms, and one of them is 1960s baby blue. We're leaving the blue tile floor and shower because it is in amazing condition, but we painted the blue walls white, and got rid of the blue toilet and sink/vanity and replaced them with white ones. Anyway, the blue toilet was sitting on the front porch of the new house because we had a few days until trash pickup, and then we ended up missing trash day because it's on Thursday and we thought it was on Friday. Anyway, the toilet sat there another week, and then Wednesday night we forgot to put it on the curb AGAIN, which meant we would have to wait another week. Oh well. We got to the new house last night to tinker around for a minute, and the toilet was gone.
GONE!!!!!!
And I know it was NOT the trash people that took it either. They won't come up on the porch to get ANYTHING.
SOMEONE STOLE OUR BLUE SHITTER!
We didn't care that it was gone, less for us to mess with, but who would do that?? I think it was a garbage picker because before we ripped out that toilet, we researched it online and found out that they are actually worth some money, mostly the lid part (don't ask me why!). So we kept the lid in the house, and if we had less to do this month, we probably would have sold the whole thing, but since we're always short on time, we just kept the lid and were going to chuck the rest. We were both mad at first that someone would come up on the porch...and take something. It's kind of a creepy feeling. But then again, now we don't have to mess with the blue shitter!

Well, you definitely need to get the camera out and start documenting this stuff. My in-laws had a pink toilet and a pink oven in their house when they bought it.
