Earlier today I saw this news article on MSNBC-
Man’s wallet found in theater after 43 years
‘It brings back good memories,’ 70-year-old says
it gave me hope that the multitude of weird things I've lost over the years may someday find there way home to me.
(like my fourth grade denim wallet with $40 Xmas money that I lost while my mother was forcing me to try on hideous BUSTER BROWN saddle shoes at the mall)
This picture is circa that age when my awesome denim pocket wallet went missing- man, wish my sister still rocked the Dorothy Hamill haircut
I've often told people that when I die, ( before I see the light at the end of the tunnel), I'd like to see all of the answers to al of the mysteries first. for example- 1.) you die 2. ) You see who killed Marilyn Monroe, JFK,RFK, Nicole Brown Simpson (oh, we already know the answer to that one) and then I also see the exact moment where I left something on the chair- someone snagged my purse- who borrowed my favorite records- books and never fessed up...you get the picture
3.) Then you see the light (it might take awhile in my case- cause lord knows I've lost a lot of stuff and I have a lot of Nancy Drew mysteries to solve.
EL CENTRO, Calif. - A California man who lost his wallet more than 40 years ago finally got it back when construction workers renovating a movie theater discovered the billfold Friday jammed between the metal casings of a radiator.
"I remember losing it," 70-year-old Epigmenio Sanchez told the Imperial Valley Press newspaper. "I just don't remember where."
Between the folds of crumbling brown leather were fragments of his past: a few family photos, old pay stubs and a couple of department store charge cards he had not seen in more than 40 years. His birth certificate, which Sanchez carried when he went to Mexico to prove he was a U.S. citizen, also was there.
He said he wasn't sure if he had any money in his wallet that day- and that he used to go the movie theatre to get away from the kids with his wife...and was just happy for the memories.
