The Rainbo Head Family

I was walking along Lake Shore Drive with my daughter when I found this wonderful work of art by a young girl for her grandmother. It must have gotten away from them in the windy city; I wish I could get this back to them.

Michael’s Lost Letter

I found this in the parking lot outside a local gym a half block from my home. It was away from the cars in the centre of the lot and yet envelope doesn’t have a mark on it, like it just floated from the sky rather than blowing off a windshield or something. It was … Continued

Shh My Ass

Love (or friendship) note left beneath my windshield wiper; my name’s not Maria but my license plate frame says “I’m a librarian and I will shush your ass.” Maria must be pretty awesome since the author says there should be “1 million more of her.” On the other hand, the author wasn’t sure if Maria … Continued

Dearest Cory

This notepad scratch was found in the seatback on a flight from LA to Boston.

A Love Lunch

Found on the ground downtown. It looks like part of a restaurant receipt, missing the other half. I wish I could return it to the owner, because this seems special.
