The back of this picture sadly reads, “The last photo of Barney before his death.” If you’re wondering, I don’t think Barney actually had an accident on the slide. I think he lived a long life and died of old age since he’s in several photos across the years. What a good ol’ wiener dog.
I work at a pool and at the end of the day I walk around and pick up trash. Today I spotted this Valentine underneath the stairs. I hope Drew is okay about losing Missy. For some reason this touched my heart.
FOUND by Pam on Turk Street, San Francisco, California
I found this kind note this morning on my regular dog walking route; ten feet away from a raccoon that had been “sleeping” next to the curb for about three days. It’s kind of heartbreaking to think of this person first noticing the raccoon, then taking the time to write the note and, I assume, very quietly place the note under the wiper so as not to wake the tired beast.
I found this in the back of a journal I was flipping threw in an ARC thrift store just outside of Denver. It blows my mind that this heart-to-heart letter sat unread and untouched for almost 30 years. It might have been a rough draft, but the journal I found it in had no other pages torn out that I could see and nothing else was written in it. Why it never made it to Lisa I guess is up for speculation. Thank you Jon, Now your letter was’ent written in vain.
FOUND by Andrew inside a teen-fiction library book
I worked for a small town public library which provided a great source for lost materials as patrons seemed to use anything nearby as a handy bookmark. Oftentimes, we’d try to reunited these misplaced items with their owners, but it wasn’t always possible. This was one such item that caught my eye. I doubt the drawing had intended to be related to the poem, but after re-reading the painful words, I found some kind of resonation between the two.
