Benedict Ave Portsmouth, RI

This man was so wonderful! Turns out, he was just arriving home from a vacation in Florida the day I left the toilet in his yard. He called, with fear in his voice, "how long has that been in my yard...." thankfully, just a couple hours.
He is already on a relay team, and has already donated quite a bit of money- but still donated to us-THANKS!!!

Crestview Dr Portsmouth, RI

The next recipient was not as excited for their new lawn ornament- so I skipped the picture.

Island Dr Middletown RI

The big white elephant in the room- he couldn't get ONE neighbor to ask him about it!!

Windstone Dr Portsmouth, RI

This is in front of one of the teacher's houses. She is such a good sport, a great teacher & a very caring person. We are very lucky to have her & many great teachers in our school. Thanks!!

Ridgewood Rd Middletown, RI

We started the second toilet going yesterday, and my SIL got to be the first "on-island" recipient after her Facebook comments of "you all in Little Compton enjoy that toilet..."

And just in case you were worried about the toilet taking down the neighborhood, no worries- look what we found just down the road.

Oh- and you remember the story about driver #1 getting pulled over while "out on a delivery;" guess what happened again?!?! Yup, you guessed it, she got pulled over AGAIN for the same thing (don't remind her that her husband is a mechanic!)

Simmons Store

Last night, the toilet was dropped at Simmons Store in Adamsville, without incident, I must add.

The kids spent a couple hours outside the store seeking donations, and made over $100; woo-hoo! Here they are posing for the Sakonnet Times photographer, who came to take a picture for a story they are going to run about our toilet fundraising.

Crandall Road, Tiverton

This toilet drop did not go as well as expected either. It was here- proof is in the picture. And these recipients did not relocate it to not so enthusiastic neighbors, so this was better, BUT...

The poor driver got pulled over by the police on the delivery for having the plate light out. Yikes!

Not every appreciates our sense of humor....

So today didn't go exactly as planned. The plan is to drop it off at night, after dark, so people can be surprised when they wake up in the morning. We tried to drop it off last night but the recipients turned on flood lights and we left- thinking they wanted to "catch" us. Turns out they thought we were dropping off garbage or stray animals (I guess this has happened to them before). So it was dropped off an another house. I went this afternoon to take a picture, it was in front of the wrong house.

Apparently the man who got it last night thought he would be funny & share it with his neighbor. She didn't appreciate the humor. She thought it was very inappropriate. So, no picture today- sorry folks. Hopefully the next recipient doesn't share the love- you never know what the neighbors will think!
