There truly are wonderful people here.
On Oct. 13, I was playing my tambourine in a band for a benefit for Ryan Pickering at the Broadalbin Hotel. After that, our band played at the Broadalbin block party. I had a great time and everyone involved did a wonderful job.
Because I was playing, I did not carry my purse. Instead, I placed a $20 bill around my license and placed it in my pocket. Mad money, if needed, and ID.
After setting up and playing the first set at the block party, my fingers were freezing. A friend came up to me and said, "Let's get a cup of coffee to warm you up." I reached in my pocket and my money and license were gone. My only prayer at that time was "Please return my license to me."
On Oct. 15, I received a wonderful call from the Fulton?County Sheriff's Office asking me if I had lost anything over the weekend. I said, "yes, my license." The deputy then asked if I had lost anything else, to which I replied, "yes, $20, but I know that's lost forever." Well, to my surprise, he informed me he had both my license and the $20. Amazing.
Whoever you are who did this wonderful deed, thank you, not only for turning both my license and the $20 over to the sheriff, but for making me truly believe there are amazingly wonderful people in this world and you are one of them.
Thank you for being there and for being who you are.
