Message in a bottle gets delivered 4,000 miles away4/6/2012
A Connecticut man who chucked a message in a bottle into the Long Island Sound on a whim in October 2010 just received a postcard from the person who found it -- a year and a half later and 4,000 miles away. Jerry Pope, who'd written his name and address on his bottled note, said he was shocked to receive a postcard from someone saying they'd found his message on the Isles of Scilly, 28 miles off the southwestern coast of Great Britain, on March 22. "When I received my postcard back, it jarred my memory because I forgot I did it," Pope said, "and I said, isn't that something." Indeed.
What message would you put in a bottle?
