Found exactly as described, but with a very exuberent and energetic Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy trying to bite me to pieces. Owners not answering their door, despite 2 cars on the drive. So fended off the dog with one hand and photographed the FB with the other. Not a pleasant experience, but got the bag!
