Thanks Monica Stewart

I stayed work late tonight working on a personal project for a friend. I left work around 9:00. I got home and went to put my Sony Clie on the table, but it wasn't hanging from it's belt clip, only the broken pivot. A wave of panic came over me as I retraced my steps back to the office. I went out to the car, but it wasn't there. The only other place it could be was in my office parking lot (20 miles North East) or in the office - or at the corner where I had jumped out to clean off the back window. Yikes. I've got about $200 in that thing between the Clie and the case, not to mention my debit card and driver's license ...

So after I downed some spaghetti, I headed back north. While on my way a nice woman named Monica Stewart (or Stuart?) saw it lying in the street where I had gotten out. She stopped and picked it up, somehow finding the number of a friend inside. He called my wife who called her back. Even though it was after 10:00 by now, she waited for me to arrive. I had no idea until I rounded the corner, scanning the ground for it and wondering what that blue van was doing there. Monica popped out of the van, waving her arms. "Are you Doug?" she asked with a big grin as she crossed the street. She handed me the Clie and headed quickly back to her van (It's below 5 degrees in Columbus now.) I managed to thank her several times and determine that she had just picked her kids up from down the street when she saw it laying there. I figure she waited there for me for about a half an hour, with her kids in single digit temps.

Unfortunately someone else didn't see it and it had been run over and the screen cracked to bits. But, I don't have to worry about canceling my debit card and getting a new license. Thanks Monica.

At the right is my Sony Clie in the process of getting it's digitizer replaced. That's the old digitizer in the upper part of the picture, the front case at the left, the rear case at the upper right and... Read More

Wow! It is so nice to know we still have honest people in this world. And God was looking out for it for you too!

We also had left our digital camera at a local pool this week, and it was found and returned to the management. With an upcoming cruise - it was nice to not have to buy a new one!

Wow, that's cool that you got it back. Unfortunately I'm going to have to buy a new one or at least a new screen. I'm not sure if I can just buy the screen or not.

Happenings like that area great for combating synicism of the human nature. "There is hope" I say, "There is hope."
