FOUND by Mark in The Ritz Theatre, Alabama City, Alabama
I am the house manager of a small vintage movie theatre in northeast Alabama. One morning, I arrived early to clean the theatre prior to hosting an elementary school group for their weekly movie day. I found this little gem laying on the concession stand counter in the lobby. We also house a community theatre group, so this could have been the handiwork of a bored child who was there because they could not be trusted to stay at home alone while Mom or Dad was on stage rehearsing for a play. I don’t know. But it does seem that the writer/artist was having a hard time deciding between two schools of thought.
FOUND by Allen outside of the English Department building where I teach
I was walking to my truck after teaching a Freshman English course, looked down and found this note. I love the way that the author travels through time in the note. There is something so innocent and sweet about the note, I had almost forgotten what it was like to feel like this.
FOUND by Amanda Schoffstall in Shamokin, Pennsylvania
This sheet of paper was folded into a tiny square, lying in the parking lot of the bank where I work. I opened it up to make sure it didn’t contain any personal info like account numbers or whatever, and instead I discovered this note.
Back in the early 90s I worked for the Stevens Point Parks Department, keeping downtown Main Street and the Square clean. I found a lot of weird stuff working there (you wouldn’t believe how many bullets I found), but photos are always something I feel the need to hold on to. I found this picture on the sidewalk. It had been outside for a while and looked like it had been driven over and drug through the streets, which is why there are all those white spots. The woman’s outfit makes me giggle, but I wonder what is up with that kid. He looks like he isn’t having too much fun. He looks like his drugged. Or maybe he’s just weighted down by the enormous size of that life preserver.
This note was found at a high school nestled at the top of a garbage can. If it isn’t golden I don’t know what is. Cute little cartoons and drawing decorate this seemingly innocent note. Innocent, that is, until we read on a bit and discover this innocent young lady needs an FTF!
