Thoughts (Part Fourteen)

(http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2008985067_apwamessageinbottle1stldwritethru.html)

On March 30, 1913, a young man tossed a bottle with a note inside into a creek.  95 years later, it was finally found by a man walking along the river with his children.  Amazingly, the note was still mostly intact.  The man who sent the message on its way died in 1978, but there living relatives have been found.  I wonder what their reaction was when they learned of that long ago note.  I would be amazed if someone found a message that one of my relatives tossed or buried somewhere.  It is kind neat to think about.

I am an Air Force veteran. I served as a Security Forces troop for nearly seven years and reached the rank of Staff Sergeant before separating in 2008. My tours of duty were in England and Oklahoma. I live in the Seattle area, which is where I grew up. I used my GI Bill and earned a degree from the University of Washington. I currently work in downtown Seattle and experience all the adventure that comes with that.
