Totally Not Me This Time - I Have, um, 'Acquired' More Josephs, Virgins, Garden Gnomes & Wee Jesi Than I Can Possibly Eat

Mary, Joseph Figures Stolen From Manger

from The Associated Press

OAK HILL, W.Va. - Baby Jesus is safe but his parents are missing. Someone stole the figures of Mary and Joseph from a manger display on a lawn in Oak Hill this week.

Mayor Barbara Hickman said the thief did not get the display's Baby Jesus figure because it is not put in the manger until Christmas Eve. That's because someone stole it two years ago but it was later recovered.

"Well, if he'd been in there this year, he would have gone with Mom and Dad," Hickman said Thursday.

"I hope that the thief, or thieves, every time they look at (the purloined figures), they think of one of the 10 Commandments: Thou shalt not steal."
