"Thanks so much for the lovely thank you note dated January 11. It spent the months of January and February embedded in the ice in our driveway. Luckily we had a slight warming in temp or we would have found it in June!
A great item for the "found on the ground" website!!!"
Thanks to Stranger in the Background for a STUPENDOUS find. Here's the story:
"I found the inspirational/crazy Rolodex notes abandoned on a table at the restaurant I work at after a particularly busy lunch shift. The customer who had been sitting there was a middle aged businessman who had come in a few times before and always been very brusque, bordering on rude, when ordering. With him was a younger woman who was also dressed in lower Manhattan financial finery. They were clearly there to discuss Business.
I don't know what these are about, but they were very neatly held together with a paper clip and there seems to have been some time put into assembling them.
Strangely, I like the Business man a little more now that I know he might be a little off his rocker."

It would be fun to confuse people by serving cucumber slices on these plates.
" I'd say the person who left it had been gone over an hour at least since it had been quite a while since the time we arrived and the time we found it, or I should say, shown it, by the guy picking up empty glasses/bottles, so I didn't hesitate to take it. It was practically under a chair by the wall, and it was still unwrapped in a little brown paper gift bag. What a cool gift, too! It's a set of four plates, about 4" x 4" each. There's no purple in it, that's just reflection from my light."
