FOUND by E. Peterson in a music practice room at college
This was in a music practice room at college. I went there to write a song, and I ended up using a few pieces of it in the song I wrote.

I found this while rummaging through some photographs. I think this photo is of the Graf Spee, a German battle-cruiser built toward the end of World War I that was used in World War II. She sank nine allied merchant ships in 1939. British and New Zealand cruisers hunted her down and badly damaged her in December, 1939. Captain Langsdorff entered a port in neutral Uruguay and let go the prisoners he’d rescued from the ships he’d sunk. He then pulled out of port and eventually scuttled the ship, taking his own life at the same time.

I found this note while changing my badly damaged and useless car tire. I don’t remember seeing it prior to taking the tire off or while I inspected the damaged goods. Great surprise! After finishing up the task at hand I stood, quite satisfied, staring at my work-covered hands (no thanks to that jerk truck that ran me off the road). I was ready to go back inside when the note brushed against my foot. I was thorougly delighted to see that this wasn’t just the on-the-reg piece of San Antonio street “decor” (big fan of the site and anything that holds any mystery). No, this had writing, and even more interesting it was a child’s handwriting. It read: “Today’s Note: I am realy sorry to my mom for wat i did at the store but she dosent beleve me.”
