See Ya Soonz

I found this note in the library.

Dear Cory

I found this letter at a thrift store. It’s written on the inside cover of Here’s Another Book, My Friend. Makes me wonder if Cory lost the book or just gave it away. Anywho I rescued it and it is an inspirational letter for me; thank you, Ann and Cory.

Geek Romance

I run a small technology lab at a local university. I found this message left at my printer this morning. Somebody printed it last night and forgot to pick it up. The lab is open-use so there’s no way for me to know who printed it.

And All Was Saved

My wife found this letter in an old paperback book she purchased from a local bookstore. I think it’s such an awesome time capsule. Kinda makes you wonder weather Dieter and Melanie are living “happily ever after” in a commune somewhere.

This was found inside a copy of an Isaac Asimov book at Walrus and Carpenter Used Books. I couldn’t resist buying the book and found the postcard upon later inspection. I hope they don’t come looking for me next.

Icky Nicci

My friend Jen and I found this when we were going to lunch.

You Have Stalker Mail

Got the most bizarre stalker postcard in my mailbox today. It’s addressed for the previous tenant (*phew*), a Mr. D. Snodgrass. The front is completely hand inked with metallic craft pen and the whole thing is chunky with decoupage glue. Looks like a lot of lonely went into this.
