On Friday, at closing, as Stan brought in the hall display stuff, a card drifted out of the pallet of fertilizer. He’d stepped on it as he wiggled past it on his way to the back door. He thought it might be a missed piece of the paperwork for the material. It wasn’t. The tag showed a dozen dates with a string of numbers after each, starting with the next day-Saturday.
