Thursday, June 25, 2009

Today was a great day in Reno. Beautiful sunshine, the Truckee River bike trail that runs from Sparks through downtown Reno, and a nice lake and marina at Ledgend's Casino.

Then it happened ... my camera slipped out of my pocket while I was riding my bike.

A woman walking along the river saw it fall out of my pocket and tried to catch me, but I didn't hear her calling for me.

I spent most of the day on Friday trying to track down where someone would go if they found a camera and wanted to turn it in. I stopped at the Reno Police Department, the Parks Department, the Street Department, and the Bus Central Office. I left my name and phone number with all of them.

I called the local newspaper to place a "LOST" ad, but they wanted almost $40. That seemed like a lot, so I didn't place the ad.

Craig's List is a good place to put a "Lost and Found" ad, and it turned out to be the ticket. The woman that was looking for me had just called the newspaper. The clerk told here that I had just called to place an ad.

Barbara is a local resident of Reno, and she's a wonderful representative of her community! We met at Meadow Wood Mall. I tried to pay her for all her trouble, but she would not accept any money. Thanks again for returning my camera!

This is the bike path that goes along the Truckee River near Downtown Reno.

This is the marina near the Legend's Casino in Sparks.
