FOUND by Buster Bonjour in Amarillo, Texas
Found inside a children’s book purchased at a thrift store titled The Story of the U.S.S. Arizona. Sounds like Paul had a wonderful vacation.
FOUND by Jason in Honolulu, Hawaii
I was on my way to work when this torn piece of paper caught my eye. The garbage collectors had already came by, but this seemed to have gotten away. It was written on card stock, and I think it was the inside front cover of a book or something. I’m not sure what kind of letter it is, if Hyunju is a guy or a girl’s name, or if that person even lives in my neighborhood. The letter starts well enough, then goes awry. “I’m so glad you are the one…” then “something about you…” and finally “about the shit you…” Aren’t those the words to Alanis’ “You Outta Know”?
I’d really like to find out the rest of this letter. It’s a quarter of something emotionally stirring, because it wouldn’t have been ripped liked this otherwise.
FOUND by Leslie in Hawaii
I bought a very conservative flannel night gown at Salvation Army as a joke bachelorette party gift. When I was folding the night gown to wrap it, I noticed something in the pocket, this note. The odd thing is that the nightgown still had the tags and everything on it, which makes me wonder if grandma ever even got Gingers note. Also, we have determined that dirty “licon” is dirty “licking”, which in Hawaii means she got a whipping.

FOUND by Jason and Christi in Hawaii
My girlfriend, Christi, and I found this on our walk home from UH. It was folded up on the ground when we happened upon it, and we probably would have ignored it, but the little drawings caught both of our attention at once, so much so that we both stopped our conversation at the same time, and paused to look down at it.
