BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — Hey, diddle, diddle! The cat and the fiddle ... the thief ran off with the spoon?
The owner of Bellingham's Fountain Bistro is hoping someone will spot a 4-foot-tall silver spoon that vanished from the restaurant over the weekend.
Jill Holmes says the spoon was screwed onto the north side of the building along with a giant fork. She noticed it was missing Sunday morning so figures it must have been taken late Saturday night.
In the nursery rhyme, "the dish ran away with the spoon." Holmes suspects a thief with a screwdriver.
Holmes tells the Bellingham Herald she has a sense of humor about the theft now, but she still wants her spoon back. She says the fork is lonely.
