Have You Ever Lost a Note, or a Shopping List, Perhaps?

I came across this site, called Found Magazine, which allows people to post notes, lists and photographs that they have found.  The story about how the web site was born is quite funny...be sure to read the "note that started it all", it's hilarious (there is a link, above).  The general idea is that if you happen to come across some crumpled paper on a city street, or an old photograph laying on the sidewalk, or a postcard in an old book that you bought at a yardsale, and it has some interesting or funny content, you are encouraged to submit it.  These tiny glimpses into people's lives can be jarring, frightening, hilarious, and silly.  The comments left by some of the folks who submit items are often as funny as the notes themselves.  So, here's an example:

Now, if that doesn't get the message across.....

Here's one that makes me laugh, but in a very guilty way...because it shouldn't be funny...



And, another found note:  I was laughing out loud at this one:
 


Found has a "Daily Find", so you'll want to check back often (daily?).  Maybe you've found an old love letter in the pocket of a jacket that you picked up at Goodwill? How about a funny note that you found near school? Something left on your windshield in error? Be sure to submit it, we'd love to "find" it too!
