Went out grocery shopping and chanced upon a greeting card on the floor. At first, I thought it might be from the stationary department until I looked inside to find writing. Must have dropped out of someone’s purse.
FOUND by Jonathan tied to the stick of a spent firework, found laying in our garden New Year’s Day.
We live in Germany. As far as I can make out, it says:
“Dear heaven, I wish for more serenity for me, a friend for Carmen, health for Claudi and me, a new job! peace on Earth and always the right decisions! A star for you! Mama you passed on, you are missed so much”
I think I got the gist of it, and I hope that by sharing it, whoever wrote it gets what they wish for. Happy New Year!! :-)
[We'd love a decent translation of this note-- if there are any Arabic speakers out there, hit us up at with a translation! -- Eds]
FOUND by Emma in St. Fergus, Aberdeenshire, Scotland
I found this on the beach while I was walking my dogs. I have no idea as to what it says as I cannot read Arabic. When I found the letter it was wrapped up in a tiny blue material pounch held together by one safety pin. My guess is that it is a love letter from a woman as the paper is covered in a very strong smelling perfume.
