So, I walked away from my desk yesterday morning for a moment, and when I returned, the guy who sits next to me said, "I think your phone was ringing - Charlie Brown" which means that my cell phone rang. Where I work they prefer that you not use your cell phone, which is why if mine is out on my desk charging, I always have it on silent. But it was in my bag, in a desk drawer (OK - it's a loud ringer so I can hear it, and yes, I have my beloved "Linus and Lucy" theme back as my ringer because it's my really old phone). I looked at the phone, and the missed call was a number I didn't recognize.
I looked up where area code 319 is . . . Iowa . . . and there was a message . . . . "hello, this is Officer xxx, calling from the Waterloo Police Department. We have your wallet." She proceeded to rattle off everything that was in it - everything is still there except, of course, for the cash and postage stamps. It was dumped at the library, it's not icked up at all, and by tonight it should be winging its way home to me!!! I overnighted a UPS shipping bag for her to overnight it back to me.
I'm so jazzed!!!
