I saw a front yard full of these (bordering the flowerbeds) in my old neighborhood. I really wanted to take one for Greg for his birthday, because he digs the nautical theme, being a seaman. It was very tempting, but I wasn't sure if it was "right" to steal one–so I let it go.
A couple months later we were biking down that street and I stopped to show them to Greg. He just reached out and grabbed one.
We keep it in the kitchen on our work table.
