Someone noticed a swastika drawing on my brother’s desk, which he did not draw. They decided to anonymously leave this note on his desk. This prompted my brother to address the whole class saying that he didn’t do the drawing and he isn’t racist. No one ever admitted to writing the note.
This letter was in a book I found at a Spokane, Washington, used book store. It was never sent, apparently, as the 2-cent stamp was not cancelled. Because it was in such pristine condition, I was surprised to see how old it was. Sweet!

While at the library this week, I needed scrap paper, so grabbed one of those little pieces of paper that they have next to the card catalog for writing down call numbers or whatever. This is what I found on it.
On Halloween my house gets a lot of trick-or-treaters. A LOT. This year we estimate that about 1,200 kids came by our house. When cleaning up after Halloween I found this note on the floor on a crumpled 3×5 card. Perhaps this was dropped by one of the moms?
Stopping and browsing at a local yard sale about a year ago, I picked up a copy of Alcoholics Anonymous and found the attached photo. It was probably taken overseas during World War II. At first, I thought it was in the tropics, but the landscape belies that. Perhaps it was taken @ a US military base. It is inscribed on the back: “Don’t I look ambitious, the regular stenographer. Also notice how bald yours truly is getting.”
