message in a bottle

just a quick post...

my parents' neighbors were walking along the beach, picking up garbage one day recently when they found a sealed bottle with a note inside. they opened the bottle and found wedding vows and a wedding date from a couple in wisconsin.

the eerie thing was that they had been married on the same date 28 years earlier! they got in contact, and are going to be on the cbs early show this morning. for the full version read here

isn't that cool? haven't you always wanted to find a message in a bottle?

Wouldn't it have been funny if they had been arrested on national TV for polluting the water???

Such a romantic guy, aren't I? :)

funny you should mention that, mr l! the couple who found the bottle pick up trash on the beach daily, and were first a little put-off by it, until they read the message.

you wouldn't believe the stuff that washes up on the shores of lake michigan. i remember as a child putting a tampon applicator atop a sancastle... obviously not knowing what it was.

we take a garbage bag on walks around our small neighborhood occasionally and find more trash than you'd expect.

i think the best and most interesting garbage i've ever seen was by the side of the road in the canning town area of london. it was positively inspiring.

Yes, I would love to find a message in a bottle. I wish I'd rather your post BEFORE the show aired. Very cool.
