One more phone   James - Saturday, August 14, 2021, 10:22 pm

Driving up Colonial, I spotted an iphone. Screen was busted, but I got Siri to work and said "call mom". Was able to track down the owner of the phone, their home about two blocks away.

Partial phone return   James - Friday, August 6, 2021, 9:10 am

Biking on West Lake Road, found a completely destroyed telephone. Pulled out the SIM card and the SD card, put it in my phone. Got a phone number, so I called it. The guy picked up, and came over to collect the bits. Turned out he was extremely happy because it had all the pictures of his twins on it.

Bicycling under COVID   James - Thursday, August 27, 2020, 7:23 pm

Biked yesterday, found a nice phone (Samsung?) and returned it to the owner. Haven't found too much this year due to working from home and not biking as much. I did find a dollar and a crescent wrench.

More stuff I've found   James - Tuesday, December 10, 2019, 9:25 am

Here it is, December 12th, and I'm still bicycling. The big snow hasn't hit yet - in past years, it hit around December 7th, but everything's melted off again.

More things I've found:

  • More phones: Apple iPhone - completely demolished, but returned to owner via SIM card.
  • Plastic toy grenade
  • Rear red blinking light for bicycle. I wrapped some wire around it and am still using it.
