I was emailed this picture by a stranger who mixed up my email with a friend’s. The email said “dear ol, has the heat dropped? are you still sane? how are the cats getting along. here i am pretty restricted, the bad guys control the town, I have taken shrinking medicine and dyed my hair black. i only hope i can get restored to normal, but they say that costs a whole lot more as everyone wants to look like a gringo hepas of hugs and please say hi to santiago. tell him i am thinking i will go straight to hf from the plane when i return and bring his volvo down on Sept 2 so we can load up in nyc.” I was going to tell them they had they wrong person but I love getting mysterious messages… so I just didn’t respond. :)

I found this business card while walking in downtown.
FOUND by Marie in Augusta, Maine
I found this note written on an envelope on the floor in my local post office. What I find interesting is the envelope has no address written on it. I wonder if it was ever got to the intended recipient or if it was just tossed. I feel bad for whoever wrote it.
FOUND by Metta in Asheville, North Carolina
I found this in a book in the health and fitness section of a second-hand store. On the back are the patient’s notes about which vitamins and laxatives to take each day.

FOUND by Grace Kaelin in Louisville, Kentucky
My husband found this note, which looks like it was typed on a manual typewriter, in a book in a used bookstore.
FOUND by Byron in St. Louis, Missouri
Found this while browsing at a used book fair. Wish I could remember the name of the book it was hiding inside, but I didn’t want to buy the book, so I put it back, but kept the note (score!). It’s a sweet note from a mom to her kid, a sort of pep talk before some kind of sports match. It sounds as if the kid is having some anguish borne from her athletic experience, and the mom feels compelled to give her some advice. The part at the bottom? A somewhat less emotional birthday greeting (from a different writer?) for “JoJo,” who reminds the writer of Judy Blume’s “Fudge.” “Don’t think – just play.” Very Zen.
FOUND by Rebekah Woolverton in my high school
Well, at least he was being truthful.
