Thread Name: Pete Seeger's banjo -- RETURNED
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's banjo -- RETURNED
Possible explanations:
The one from the person with a nasty sense of humor is, guy stole it, then realized it was a banjo, and dumped it.
Guy realised it was easily identifiable and dumped it.
Guy thought it was abandoned when it wasn't and picked it up.
Guy stole it, but had a concience that kept bugging him, so he returned it.
Guy bought it knowing full well what it was. Didn't want to explain that, and just returned it, saying it had "fallen off a truck."
There are loads of others. It's interesting to speculate, but I'm just really glad Pete got it back. Sometimes things really do turn out OK...
