FOUND by Liz in Detroit, Michigan
A typewritten, fill-in-the-blank enigma. Who wrote it? What for? Why a big church wedding? What does the last sentence mean?? How long has it been since you’ve thought of the word “daffy?”
FOUND by Amber Dawn in North Carolina
A while back, I found a bunch of slide carousels. I don’t know who they belonged to originally, but some of the people appear in multiple slides, so that’s one clue. The dates are stamped on the slides and range from 1970 to 1979. Most are overseas vacation photos, but it’s the family photos which I like best.
This is one of the earlier slides, dated 1970. It was most likely taken during a small family get-together, maybe a birthday or special event. For the sake of the little boy, let’s hope it’s a special occasion! Dad (or whoever) is DEFINITELY holding a lit cigarette to the kid’s mouth. You may not be able to tell, but in the larger version there’s even a cherry (burning) on the end. Also present at the party were at least two other small children, a mom(?), a grandma(?), and at least two other men. And now you know just about as much as I do.

FOUND by Alicia at Zaytoons Hookah Bar on Myrtle Avenue, Brooklyn, New York City, New York
I started a job as a waitress at a hookah bar in Brooklyn and got stuck alone with the Valentine’s Day shift this week. The owner had recently fired the busboy so it was extra crazy for me– so many couples came in!! I think that’s why we only noticed this homemade Valentine under a table at the very end of my shift. The manager was about to toss the card but I asked to keep it. The giver (Murat I think) had clearly taken so much time to make it. I love the two pigeons on the cover, and the message on the back.
