FOUND by Louise in my yard after a windy recycle collection day
After finding this in my yard, I’m really going to be on the lookout at the next block party for some one quiet, who stays away from breakfast cereal, with shrinking thighs and keeps falling down. I hope it’s not contagious.
I was walking out to my car to go to work and noticed a postcard laying on the street with a nicely rendered image of a ketch-style sailboat plying through a foamy ocean wave. I turned the card over to discover this romantic missive.

FOUND by Emma in St. Fergus, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
I found this on the beach while I was walking my dogs. I have no idea as to what it says as I cannot read Arabic. When I found the letter it was wrapped up in a tiny blue material pounch held together by one safety pin. My guess is that it is a love letter from a woman as the paper is covered in a very strong smelling perfume.
I am a school librarian working in South London. I always find notes that the students leave each other, as well as drawings. I also have found notes about fights that have happened. This is my favourite note. I might even frame it!
