Change Your Seating Habits

When I saw the find from March 14, 2009, I was reminded of this. A sign next to it, written in the same style, said, “If you sit and use our bathroom ~ Please spray freshener, open window, and shut the door. Thank you.” There’s a deli in the market where delicious sandwiches are served, … Continued

Dry Clothes, Pray

Found in a rain puddle while walking the kids to school. I hope the person that lost this list didn’t forget what they needed to do.

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.

Tricycle Bandit

I found this in a mix of of old slides from a thrift store that I bought to test out a projector I found on the street earlier that week. Good news, the projector works like a charm.

Found outside of a school in far East Portland as I was walking my dog, must have been earlier that day, because it hadn’t been rained on yet.

Playing with Matches?

I found this photo at a garage sale from a guy who said he used to work at a photo lab and would occasionally print doubles of crazy pictures that came through. This was his favorite photo he ever copied. It raises a lot of questions.

What I Want in a Guy

There are six pages with writing in this spiral notebook (with the cover “Orient’e – Authentic Oriental, Made in Japan”), none of which look like they were done by the same person. Following a first page that simply says, “Mike’s Phylosiphy”, and several blank pages interspersed with a crossed out grocery list and a page … Continued
