Contents were more of the sentimental value, rather than monetary value.
However, 2 of the items were my Hewlett Packard 48gx Graphing Calculator, and my Wiley X Sunglasses. Those items I truly missed. I had that calculator all through college (all 7 years) and I loved it! Damn kids.
Fast forward 8 months.
Tonight I get a phone call..
Caller: "Did you loose backpack?"
Caller: "What does it look like?"
Me: "Blue and Black."
Caller: "What's inside it?"
Me.. Well, you get the idea.
Turns out, this guy found it on a freeway overpass, 8 months ago, threw it in his truck, and forgot all about it.
It must have fallen out of my construction truck during the period this summer when I was working nights..
So, I drove north and met him and got back my long lost pack, all the contents just as they were 8 months ago.. I thanked him profusely over and over, wished him a Merry Christmas, and gave him a nice finders fee.
On the way home, some drunk asshole nearly ran us off the freeway.
Just goes to show you, no good deed goes unpunished.
Yet statuettes of "El Caganer," or the great defecator in the Catalan language, can be found in nativity scenes, and increasingly on the mantelpieces of collectors, throughout Spain's northeastern Catalonia region, where for centuries symbols of defecation have played an important role in Christmas festivities.

Here's to a long life and a merry one,
A quick death and an easy one,
A pretty girl and an honest one,
A cold beer and another one!
May those who love us, love us.
And for those who don't love us, May God turn their hearts.
And if he can not turn their hearts, May he turn their ankles,
So we my know them by their limping.
And if you really want to confuse your guests, try this!
Here's to all those that I love.
Here's to all those that love me.
And here's to all those that love those that I love,
And all those that love those that love me.
Last but not least, one for our troops.
To the glasses left empty in bar rooms and homes,
To canteens in combat and the tomb of the unknowns.
We raise our hands in the glory you gave,
Land of the Free and Home of the Brave!

This comes from a friend of mine named JD.. A True Story of just how Moronic Some people are..
"Bozo criminal for today comes from Portland, Oregon where bozo Jason Klein was zipping through town at speeds exceeding 100 MPH. In spite of this, he failed to attract the attention of a single cop. He then rammed his car into a police cruiser, backed up and hit it again. This got the attention of the police and he was placed under arrest. Which brings up the question of why he rammed the cop car in the first place. He told officers he was mad because no one had given him a speeding ticket. He has several tickets now."
Oh My Gawd...
Excuse me while I go laugh my ass off!!
