Today I found the following on an old, faded index card:
William- not Bill & certainly not "Dick"

I often find bits of paper around the house with scribbled notes on them. Sometimes it's a corner of an envelope or a grocery receipt. Other times it's the back of an old postcard or half a Post-It note. Whatever it is, it is often unclear what I was trying to remember. If it has the name of some food item, than it could be part of a grocery list (or not), but more often than not, the paper has a short phrase or one word underlined several times.

I find these bits of memory in old purses, shoved in my checkbook, sticking out of books I've read, or am in the middle of reading, in my shower caddy, my side table, lying on the floor and sometimes, even stuck to my clothes. I'll share a few of them here:

Letter with bits of sand in the envelope.
Boston's south side
Miss Hargreaves frank baket (at least that's what it looks like)
Ribbon for Anne's jar
Tap the clock at top
It's a beard

It's hard to see why I'm not a member of Mensa, isn't it?
