Did 24 miles in Cape Girardeau, MO this morning. Every once in a while I will find something interesting along the roadside, but today was extra special. First I found a University of Alabama Ball Cap. Now I could give a rip about UA or any other team, but this was a nice hat in great shape.
I spent the next few miles thinking how lucky I was I am easy to please. Anyway, at about mile 20, I saw something from the corner of my eye in the grass along the road that ran along the flood wall. At first, I thought it was a cassette tape, but it shined as I passed by. I almost went on, but something in my head said "go back". I turned around to check it out.
IT WAS AN I-PHONE I could not believe it. And, it was ALIVE I put it in my pocket and headed to a local coffee shop for a lemonade and to check this thing out. It was awesome. I have a Blackberry, but it pales in compare to this thing. I was in love
But, reality set in, and I knew what I had to do. Find the owner Damn conscience! The first thing I did was look through all of the pictures and video. I would like to say it was for the sake of investigation, but really it was because I am a voyeur
Next, I went to the last numbers dialed and started calling. It took 5 people before I got an answer. Finally found someone who knew the owner. The funny thing was, they had no idea how to reach them outside of the cell phone. Then, on the 6th call, I got a sister of the owner. Within a half hour, I connected with the owner. Young 20ish girl Brittney who really didn't seem to appreciate my efforts. I got a "thanks". I didn't want more, but if someone found my I-Phone and tracked me down, I would be delighted.
Now, I am back to my dumpy little Blackberry
