Dustin: Lost Wallet Returns Home

Dustin Hurst tweets: "I lost my wallet in another state recently. Someone from the town in which I lost it just mailed it to me. Wow. Amazed at the generosity." The Twitter message reminded me of the time decades ago when my wife left her purse at a restaurant in The Dalles during a trip back from the Oregon Coast. We didn't notice it until our VW Rabbit broke down at Arlington along the Columbia (which is a separate story). Long & short, the purse was turned in to the restaurant manager, who sent it to us in Kalispell. We were also amazed.

Question: Have you ever lost your wallet & purse? What was the outcome?
