Shaping Up


[Click image to see 2nd page]

FOUND by Rebecca in Sioux Falls, South Dakota

This was at a thrift store in Sioux Falls. I bought the notebook without actually realizing that there was highly personal stuff in it.

Judging by the contents of the rest of it, it was owned by a girl who was in high school in 2004 and participated in power-lifting. She’s taking these goals pretty seriously, since each numbered point has a whole other page that expands on it. Hopefully she made it out okay.

Me and My Lizard


FOUND by Rebecca in South Dakota

I was walking my dog on a windy day and saw a piece of paper that was trying to blow out of a bush but trapped by the leafless branches. My curiosity got the better of me and I picked it up. Best decision ever.

Keeping this note around helps me reaffirm my faith in humanity. The image of this kid and the lizard eating and playing together is just too much.

The Eyes of Panzer


FOUND by Rebecca at the Karl Mundt Library, Madison South Dakota

So the library at Dakota State University was giving away their old books, and one in the fiction section I happened upon was “The Walking Stick”. Stuck inside was this picture. The stamp on the bottom says “C.W. Panzer, Lake Mills, WI.” on the back was written “Now let us now [sic] right away if you receive this.” I’ve kept it around because the man’s eyes are striking in a rather eerie way. I wonder who these people are.
