• In 1977 in Austin, Texas, Vincent Johnson and Frazier Black broke into the home of Mr. & Mrs. David Conner. They stole two TVs and a checkbook. A few hours later, the two men showed up at a local bank with a check made out to themselves for $200. They asked the teller to cash it for them. She asked them to wait a minute, and called security. The check they had tried to cash was her own.

• Ricky Shipman went swimming off a beach in North Carolina in 1972, and lost the wallet out of the pocket of his swimming suit. Eleven years later a man named Gause gutted a mackerel which had been caught by a friend of his off the coast of North Carolina. Inside the fish was Shipman’s drivers license, still intact. Gause returned Shipman’s license. • In 1914, just before the start of WWI, a German mother took a photo of her baby son. Film plates at that time were sold individually. She dropped the plate off in Strasbourg to be developed, but because the war started, she was never able to retrieve it. Two years later in Frankfurt, she bought

• In 1971, Mrs. Willard Lovell of Berkeley, California, accidentally locked herself out of the house. She spent 10 minutes trying to find a way in, when the postman arrived with a letter from her brother. He had been staying with her a few weeks earlier, and the letter contained a spare key to the house, which he had borrowed and forgotten to return. • It was a hot evening in June in El Paso, Texas when patrolman Allen Falby accidentally crashed his motorcycle into a speeding truck. Businessman Alfred Smith witnessed the accident and was the first person on the scene. Falby lay bleeding to death from a severed artery in his leg. Quickly, Smith removed his tie and fashioned an effective tourniquet from it. When the ambulance crew arrived, they credited Smith with saving Falby’s life. Falby eventually recovered, and returned to police work. Five years later, he reported to an accident scene along Highway 80. A car had smashed into a tree, and the driver was bleeding to death from a severed artery in his leg. Falby pulled the man from the car and applied a tourniquet. While trying to make the man more comfortable, he suddenly recognized the victim. It was Alfred Smith, the same man who had saved his own life five years earlier. “One good tourniquet deserves another,” quipped Falby. • Brenda Rawson became engaged to Christopher Firth in 1961, and he gave her a nice diamond ring. She was heartbroken when she lost the ring while on vacation in Lancashire, England. In 1979 she was talking with her husbands’ cousin, John. They were discussing metal detectors when John mentioned that 18 years earlier, one of his kids had discovered a diamond ring near Lancashire. It was her ring. • A farmer’s wife in West Germany lost her wedding ring in a potato field. Forty years later, she found it again- inside a potato grown in that field. • Actor Anthony Hopkins was looking for a book called The Girl from Petrovka by George Feifer because he was playing a part in a movie being made from the book. He looked all over London for a copy but couldn’t find one. Later he was waiting in a subway station when he noticed someone had left a book behind on a bench. Picking it up, Hopkins found it was The Girl from Petrovka. Two years later Hopkins was filming another movie when he was visited on the set by author George Feifer. Feifer complained that he no long had even a single copy of his own book because he loaned his final copy to a friend who lost it in

London, adding it was particularly annoying because he had written notes in the margins. Hopkins, incredulous, handed Feifer the copy he had found. It was the self same book. • Christina Cort lived in Salvador, Brazil in 1966 when an out-of-control truck crashed into her house. In 1989, she was still living in the same house when once again, an out-of-control truck crashed into it. It was the same truck driver who had barreled into her home 23 years earlier. • Gosselin Delius of Brussels, Belgium was caught in a storm while sailing a yacht off the coast of England in 1988. His glasses fell overboard. Several weeks later he was reading a newspaper when he saw an article stating that Yan Gazelle of Belgium had caught a 13-pound monkfish, and found a pair of glasses inside it when he gutted it. The glasses, identified by their serial number, belonged to Delius. They were bent but usable. • Otto Lewis, a lobsterman in Maine, lost his glasses when they fell overboard in the Atlantic. A few days later, a friend who was also a lobsterman returned them to him. He had found them in a lobster trap. • Beatrice Lillie, famed British actress, was appearing in a stage play called “This Year of Grace” in Ontario. During a matinee, the entire cast was on stage for the finale, in which Lillie sang, “Britannia Rules the Waves.” The cast lined up behind her, waiting for her to sing the final verse so they could move into their positions across the stage for the final curtain. However, they were shocked to hear Lillie repeating the second verse over again instead of going into the final moves. There was nothing to do but go along with her, and they marked time in the line across the back of the stage as she sang. Suddenly, a huge arc light fell from the ceiling, landing in the middle of the stage with a huge crash. Glass splattered across the stage where the cast would have been standing had Lillie not decided for an unknown reason to repeat the second verse. • E.G. Steele of Weybridge, England, served in WWI. He was tried and punished for striking an officer. His punishment was to be tied to a gunwheel for one hour at sundown. Next to his camp was an Australian brigade who passed through their camp each evening to get to a nearby town. Several Australian men discovered Steele tied up, and decided it was ridiculous to tie a man up. One of them stepped forward to cut Steele loose. Steele noticed the man had two missing fingers on his left hand. A decade later, Steele was riding the New York subway when a man sat down next to him and they began to chat. Hearing his Australian accent, Steele began to tell him of his rescue in the war. The Australian interrupted, finished the story for him, and held up his left hand- which was missing two fingers. It was the same man.

ARCTIC EXPLORERS When European explorers informed the native Dene Indians of the Northwest Territories that explorer Alexander Mackenzie had “found” the river that now bears his name, the Indians replied that they didn’t know the river had ever been lost. SHIP OF FOOLS Martin Frobisher sailed from England past Greenland in the year 1576 in search of the Northwest Passage. He ran into trouble with the native Eskimo and turned for home, taking samples of ore-bearing rocks he found on the shore. In England, a chemist announced it was gold ore. Frobisher mounted a second expedition, feeling that gold was more important than the Northwest Passage. He spent the summer of 1577 on Baffin Island, loading three ships with 200 tons of rock. Back in England, scientists exclaimed over how much gold the rocks bore— so Frobisher headed back again, this time with 15 ships. He brought home 1,350 tons of ore this time, and smelters in England spent five years trying without success trying to extract gold from it. Only then did they discover the “gold” was actually iron pyrite— fool’s gold. It was worthless. GHOST SHIP On August 11, 1775, a Greenland whaling ship called the Herald found itself in a sea full of icebergs in gale force winds. By morning, the weather cleared. Suddenly another ship came into view. As they neared it, the whalers saw that the unknown ship was covered with ice and no humans were on deck. They received no answers to their hails. The captain lowered a longboat and went to investigate, accompanied by eight men. As they approached the derelict ship, they saw that her name was the Octavius. Boarding, they found no sign of life. Kicking open the ice-coated door to go below, they were greeted by a musty odor. The men found a corpse in every bunk. Each was bundled in blankets and perfectly preserved by the cold. In the captain’s cabin, they found the captain’s body slumped forward on a desk, pen in hand. The body of a woman lay in the bunk. In the corner of the cabin was the corpse of a sailor, with a flint in one hand and a piece of steel in the other. A mound of wood shavings was in front of him. Nearby,

������������� under a heavy coat, was the body of a small boy. They found no provisions on board. Taking the log book, they returned to their own ship. Unfortunately, the log book was dropped and many pages lost into the ocean. The Octavious drifted off, never to be seen again. The logbook revealed that the doomed ship left England bound for China on September 10, 1761. Good winds and fair weather prevailed, and nothing was amiss. The final page said, “We have now been enclosed in the ice 17 days, and our approximate position is Longitude 160 W, Latitude 75 N. The fire went out yesterday, and our master has been trying to rekindle it again but without success. He has handed the steel and flint to the mate. The master’s son died this morning and his wife says she no longer feels the terrible cold. The rest of us seem to have no relief from the agony.” The location given in the logbook in the final entry was north of Point Barrow, Alaska. The captain of the Octavius had decided to look for the yet undiscovered Northwest Passage through the Arctic instead of sailing home all the way around South America. The ship, locked in the ice, sailed on even after the demise of the crew— and became the first ship ever to negotiate the elusive Northwest Passage. Her crew for the journey was a captain and crew who had been dead for 13 years. Today the logbook of the Octavius is in the archives of the Registrar of Shipping in London.

After they crawl out of the wreckage, the woman says, “Wow, look at our cars -- there’s nothing left! This must be a sign from Him that we should be friends and not try to pin the blame on each other.” The man replies, “Oh yes, I agree with you completely.” The woman points to a bottle on the ground and says, “Somehow this bottle of Scotch from my back seat didn’t break. Surely God wants us to drink this Scotch and celebrate our good fortune.” She hands the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement, opens it, and chugs about a third of the bottle to calm his nerves. The woman takes the bottle, immediately puts the cap back on, and hands it back to the man. The man asks, “Aren’t you having any?” The woman replies, “No. I think I’ll just wait for the police.” -------------------------------------------------------Q: What is the only way to keep your money from the casinos in Las Vegas?

By Samantha Weaver • It was Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist Pearl S. Buck who made the following sage observation: “All things are possible until they are proved impossible, and even the impossible may only be so as of now.” • If you dread trying (and too often failing) to pair up socks on laundry day, you’ll be glad to know that your anguish is not unrecognized: May 9 has been designated National Lost Sock Memorial Day. • Progress is not always universally embraced. In 1825, a magazine called The Quarterly Review scoffed, “What can be more palpably absurd than the prospect held out of locomotives traveling twice as fast as stagecoaches?” • If in your studies of history you never ran across the Anglo-Zanzibar War, don’t feel educationally shortchanged; most people have never heard of the conflict. In 1896, the pro-British sultan of Zanzibar, Hamad bin Thuwaini, died, and his successor, Khalid bin Barghash, did not look as favorably upon the British Empire. Because a treaty signed 10 years earlier stated that any candidate to attain the sultancy must receive the approval of the British Consul, the British viewed Kalid bin Barghash’s accession as an act of war. The sultan barricaded himself in his palace, but the superior numbers and firepower of the British quickly defeated the embattled sultan. How quickly? The battle lasted all of 40 minutes, making it the shortest war in history. • There are those who wonder if beloved actor Tony Curtis, with more than 100 films to his credit, would have been quite as successful if he hadn’t changed his name. His given name, Bernard Schwartz, just doesn’t quite have the same ring to it. *** Thought for the Day: “People need good lies. There are too many bad ones.” -- Kurt Vonnegut (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

��������������������������������������������������������� 7 Reason We MIGHT Open The Doors of Our Lives to Others

Reason #5: To Solve a Problem or Accomplish a Task

Our homeowners association was having problems. Certain board members were causing difficulties with certain homeowners. The management company wasn’t getting the job done. Work needed to be done on several decks that were almost falling down. The painting schedule had been abandoned. And worst of all, the reserves were at an all-time low. So a few of us decided to see if we could fix things. We held meetings after work to discuss strategies. We recruited new candidates for board members then sent out mailings to get proxy votes so we could get them elected. At the next Annual Meeting we took over. The stubborn board members were voted out and a new board was seated. We worked hard, and it took a few years, but the decks were all repaired, the painting schedule was reinstated, a new management company was employed, reserve funds were re-built, and soon all the fussing was stopped and our little village returned to calm. What did it take? It took a few people who were willing to step out of their comfort zone to solve a problem that affected many. We opened our homes for meetings, we opened our minds for new ideas, we listened to the complaints of people we had never met before and have never seen since. And most of all, we did what was best for the whole, not just a few. You can’t help hurting people or solve problems bigger than you are without stepping outside of your comfort zone; without opening your heart and your life to others. People who decide to run for public office certainly must be willing to be open with strangers. We’re seeing it right now as the gates are opened

and the race is on for the next presidential election. Already candidates’ lives, homes, words, deeds, and even spousal health are scrutinized by the media and especially by the opposition. Everybody is watching them. Some guy with a cell phone camera can catch a candidate speaking embarrassing words and suddenly a few million people watch and listen on YouTube. Even candidates for school boards and city councils can find their lives turned upside down because of snoopy opposition research or prying news reporters. And still people open their lives to help hurting people and to solve problems. A bunch of people from our church are going on a short term missions trip to work in an African orphanage for the children of AIDS victims. They are spending their own money taking their own time leaving behind their family and loved ones for a 30 day mission of mercy to people they’ve never met. Service clubs such as Kiwanis, Rotary, Optimists, etc. give blood, sweat and tears to solve social problems, build parks, send needy kids to college, help the blind, and much more. And yet most people are not willing to open their lives for the benefit of others. We’re just too selfish, or too private, or too secretive to allow anyone or anything into our schedule that does not directly benefit our family or our business. Besides that we don’t want to bother with the maze of inter-relational complexities that become a part of any group effort. It’s a whole lot easier to let someone else do it. “It’s not my problem” is the self-centered refrain of the uninvolved. In the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC there is this inscription: “Thou shalt not be a victim. Thou shalt not be a perpetrator. Above all, thou shalt not be a bystander.” Most of us will never do anything of great significance to help our hurting world, but all of us can do a little something every day to make our world a better place to live.
