Let’s start at the beginning. Approximately 20+ years ago I was a divorced mom of 2. I received in the mail a package from California to Sandy, for you who do not know, my name is Sandi. No return address. It is from someone I do not know, for at the time I knew no one from CA. I open the package and find a painting of a clown from Uncle Johnny. I don’t know what to do. I put up the painting and forgot about it. Since then, my children have grown with children of their own. I have remarried and moved a number of times. A couple of days ago my husband is cleaning out a closet and discovers the clown painting. I think, OK, in this new age of technology, lets try to find this Uncle Johnny. Well guess what, I found him. I goggled his name and came up with an email. I emailed him with some info and he returned the email with the correct info to identify him. We are presently trying to get the painting to Sandy after 20 years. I couldn’t destroy the painting well back then, and felt maybe somehow I would find Sandy. I am so happy I kept the painting. I don’t feel comfortable showing you the painting without Sandy and Uncle Johnny’s permission, but I don’t see why I can’t give you a little peek. I have to say this is pretty cool.

  1. I’m going to try this again (I deleted my last comment I left)…
    Sandi (with an “i”), this was such a sweet story! Twenty years? You serious? Uncle Johnny sure sounds like a sweetie and Sandy is one lucky girl to be receiving her painting after all this time! You’ve done your good deed girl!!!
    See ya tomorrow!!!!

  2. Hey, I found your blog while searching on Google. I have a blog on online stock trading, I’ll bookmark your site.

  3. Mrs Sandi again Thank You so much for holding on to the painting!! It was such a pleasure to meet you and your husband. I really enjoyed my visit with you two. I can not wait for us to get together again. God Bless you and your family!!
