This is a question Stuff I've found

Freddy Woo writes, "My non-prostitute-killing, lorry driving uncle once came home with a wedding cake. Found it in a layby, scoffed the lot over several weeks."

What's the best thing you've found?

bright pink string...
When I was about 13 years old - so we're talking a good couple of decades ago now! - I noticed a line of bright pink string running along the gutter on my way home from school. I followed it all the way to the end of our road and it carried on up the hill into the distance.

"Mum" I said when I got home. "There's a line of bright pink string running all the way from school past the end of the road and onwards"

I'm not sure why, but we decided this mysterious string needed investigating. We went to the end of the road and both started gathering it in to a ball from where it passed us. About half an hour later my end reached its conclusion... by now we had a ball of pink string about the size of a large melon... but in the other direction it was still going strong.

It took over 3 hours to complete our reeling in task. Dinner was burnt.. from memory my father highly disapproved... and we ended up with a ball of bright pink string about the size of a generous beach ball.

To this day I have no idea where it came from or what its purpose was - my mother still sends me packages in the mail tied up with bright pink string :)

I was really hoping..
You'd find Pob's girlfriend.

Click if you know what I'm on about! Nice touch on the parcels by your mum, reminds me of something my mum would do!
