Hamden, known for its Christmas light display on 34th street, has a lesser known New Year’s celebration on the same street. People throng 34th waiting for “our” version of the Times Square ball drop and the eventful Baby New Year appearance. Baby New Year happens to be a tubby middle aged guy wearing nothing but a diaper, bonnet and a fu manchu. He descends his stairs, scampers about and high fives the gathered merrymakers. Good times…you should swing by some year. Anyhow, my wife alertly retrieved this from the corner of Chestnut and 34th. We enjoyed passing it around amongst friends at the Hon Bar… discussing our hopes for the new year and wishing the person luck in achieving their goals…hope they located the educational DVD mentioned. I need one to help me find my “bliss.”

I got this five-dollar bill as change at a Japanese restaurant up the street, and was intrigued by the note at the bottom.

Found in the gutter on Ramsay Street. I am most struck by the comment about the stove. It seems to say, “Look, I’m not really thrilled about the dope-shooting in my house, but I could live with it if you were just a little more conscientious about turning off the stove when you were done.” Some people are never satisfied. No doubt, if they did turn off the stove, “Me” would start complaining about the needles left lying around.

This was in a used book. It feels like notes for a speech, but that doesn’t seem right.

The careful wording really makes this note.

I found this at Johns Hopkins University. It was on the ground on Art Museum Drive, just a couple hundred feet north of 29th St.

Someone left this on the circulation desk in October of 2002. I guess it’s advice/commands for drag ball participants. My favorite line is the last one.

I found this on my car windshield last fall. My girlfriend and I now close the bedroom blinds.

I found this drawing at Patterson Park. I don’t think this needs a big story behind it; it seems to speak volumes on so many levels.
