Kicker – A random act of refurbishment

MARY REICHARD, HOST: A man in New Mexico set a pair of old dining room chairs outside of his garage. He didn’t worry about leaving them outside as he left for work. Who’d want to steal a pair of tattered old chairs?

But when Conrad Duran returned home, the chairs were gone—on Christmas Eve, no less. 

But just a few days later, he returned to find the chairs were back and completely refurbished with new upholstery and fresh red paint. 

Duran told KRQE…

DURAN: I thought that someone had stolen these, and low and behold, they had just taken them, redid them and then returned them as a Christmas gift or something like that.

BASHAM: I’m gonna set some old chairs out! 

Right?!  It’s The World and Everything in It.
