In a recent post, Granny Marigold shared a book she had purchased called "Forgotten Bookmarks." (A bookseller's collection of odd things lost between the pages). If you didn't see her post, you can find it here. It sounds like a fascinating book to me and one that made me think of one of my own odd finds.
With the number of books I have picked up at thrift shops through the years has come a fair amount of forgotten bookmarks. Often they are airline ticket stubs or receipts. Once in a while a pressed flower or grocery list. There may have been a dollar bill along the way. I'd have to say my most mysterious find showed up recently in this paleo cookbook.
Well, hello Humphrey. What are you doing in there?
This black and white photograph intrigued me.
Obviously it is a very old picture of Humphrey Bogart.
Seemed a bit odd to find in a Paleo cookbook dated 2014.
When I turned it over and found this note, things got more mysterious.
Who is this person that goes to bed at 4:30 a.m?
Is Alison a male? A dog, perhaps.
Was Chip able to save the day? In the process I surely hope he didn't alarm Caroline. That would not be good.
Wonder what Steve thought of this. Perhaps he was the one to save the day.
I guess we shall never know how this mystery ended. Hopefully it was on a happy note as I hate to think of Caroline waking up to bad news.
Have you stumbled across any forgotten bookmarks lately?
