FOUND by TC in Portland, Oregon
Was in a box of letters, photos, postcards and other items, abandoned in the attic by the prior owners of the house my brother bought recently.
FOUND by Daniel Southard dumped near Crannel, California
The annual mowing of the thick vegetation growing on this coastal Humboldt County dank gully road (NO, NOT THAT KIND OF DANK) revealed some old trash bags ripped open, spilling their contents into the cut ferns. Many photos and slides were hidden therein, lovingly distressed and melted by the weather. The back says Mar 69, and I just love the weird feeling of it all- the cheap santa suit, the half-erect hat, the ill fitting mustache.
Enjoy, and keep up the good work! Thanks for coming to Arcata!
FOUND by McKenah in a high school cafeteria
My friend and I were exiting our school cafeteria when we saw a note flutter to the ground. We didn’t get a chance to see who dropped it but whoever it was, she was chatting with the principle. My friend scooped it up and unfolded it quickly. we read it and started dying laughing and then argued over who could keep it.
FOUND by Becca in Madison, South Dakota
I found this greeting card in a secondhand copy of the book Poirot Loses a Client. I wonder if these ladies stayed friends.
The translator I used is probably not accurate, and the handwriting’s quite hard to read, so this is the best translation I could piece out (it’s written in Danish):
I’m (???) currently and have been for the last 14 days. They have probably so busy at home or working, and so waiting is better than to go for control. I hope to get a fairly full strength painting team at school again in January. I wish you a merry Christmas.
