In my neighborhood there is always a lot of pedestrian traffic. People walking their dogs, mommies and daddies out with their strollers ... little ones in tow, women out walking in groups, families spending a little time together after dinner, etc.
You can't really get anywhere from here, not on foot but if you walk down the block and out of this section you can take a nice long walk exactly 2.3 miles in a beautifully landscaped, well manicured park like square.
It's to bad that the developers here did not think to add huge front porches when they were building these houses, it would be so nice to sit out there and watch the neighbors stroll by in the evenings.
Anyway ... with all of the foot traffic here, sometimes I will find things in the front yard that someone has lost on their journey. I've discovered over the years, that if you leave it there for a day of two someone will usually claim it.
Not this time, I found the colorful splash bomb above on the front lawn on Sunday ... it's now Friday. I was really hoping that it's owner or someone that thought it was cool would have taken it by now. (It cant stay there forever.)
Every time I see it I kind of smile, a few years ago my kids would have picked it up right away whether they needed it or not and would have reminded me of the finders, keepers rule. Do any of you know the real rules to the finders keepers rule?
It's brightly colored and it's a splash bomb, to cute to throw away but this finder will be holding out for just a little longer hoping that a keeper will come along. I guess I'll give it until Sunday!
Happy Friday all
