    That was so good to read, bet she will be happy in your garden.

    Immediately next to where I live, the heathland starts and when riding along there last week, noticed a pair of men's jeans............the mind boggles as to why, how and what was he wearing when he left!

    Not sure if this counts, about 5 years ago, one Sunday morning I looked out of my kitchen window, to discover somebody had dumped an old skanky mattress on the TOP of my little car, the poor old aerial was all squished underneath!

    One phone call and the local Council removed it, almost immediately.

    This morning as the sun was coming up, a big wave crashed sending a beautiful seaspray in the air about 3 feet above my head (riding on the 101 freeway along the pacific ocean, in semi darkness) In my gazing at it in awe, I found something sharp that gave me a flat. When I walked to the off ramp to fix it, I found a commercial type cooks apron. DH uses those to work on the bike. It came home under my jacket after I fixed the flat! Tokie

    NoBody!

    Now you guys have got a lot to answer for, especially Biciclista's story of the small doll.

    I seem to be scouring the road for what might be laying about.

    Well, yesterday when I went out for my 12 mile ride in the pouring rain and wind, I noticed little NoBody.



    Not sure why but I thought it was quite sad, once a cute doll with an owner that loved her but now, nobody.

    I keep seeing a bag of shop rags on the side of the road. The thin white towel type. I pedal on by, I don't need someone's possibly used shop towels. I wonder when the juvenile probation crew will be by? They usually keep this road nice and tidy.

    I found a litter of kittens playing beside the road. When I stopped to investigate, some of them chased me. I could have stuffed 3 of them in my bike jersey, but the husband nixed that idea.

    I bet that fetches a lot of money on the black market. Of course that is illegal.

    I think Natasha said the boxes of Levitra were empty. More's the pity.

    I never see anything good. Occasional wrappers from candy, road debris left over from winter, and dead animals. I guess people around here are too conservation minded and don't throw stuff out of the window.
    The only time we found something was when we had to pull over on the sidewalk for my husband to adjust something on his bike. It might have even been on a walk, I can't remember. Anyway, we found a wallet. So we got home and searched the woman on Google. She had moved from the address on her license, but she still lived in Boston. When Steve called her, she was so happy; she was leaving the next day on a business trip to Europe and had no ID, so she drove out here to get the wallet. I think when she saw my husband, she thought she might get a date, but then I came to the door...
    She had stopped to fix a flat and her wallet dropped out of her jersey. She rewarded our honesty by giving us a gift card to Starbucks.
