    TIDBITS CONSIDERS

    COINCIDENCEby Janet Spencer

    In 1977 in Austin, Texas, Vincent Johnson and Frazier Black broke into the home of Mr. & Mrs. David Conner. They stole two TVs and a checkbook. A few hours later, the two men showed up at a local bank with a check made out to themselves for $200. They asked the teller to cash it for them. She asked them to wait a minute, and called security. The check they had tried to cash was her own.

    Ricky Shipman went swimming off a beach in North Carolina in 1972, and lost the wallet out of the pocket of his swimming suit. Eleven years later a man named Gause gutted a mackerel which had been caught by a friend of his off the coast of North Carolina. Inside the fish was Shipmans drivers license, still intact. Gause returned Shipmans license.

    In 1914, just before the start of WWI, a German mother took a photo of her baby son. Film plates at that time were sold individually. She dropped the plate off in Strasbourg to be developed, but because the war started, she was never able to retrieve it. Two years later in Frankfurt, she bought another film plate to photograph her new baby daughter. When it was developed, she found it was a double exposure. The picture underneath was that of her small son. Somehow the plate had become mixed in with a pile of undeveloped film.

    COINCIDENCE (continued): In 1971, Mrs. Willard Lovell of Berkeley,

    California, accidentally locked herself out of the house. She spent 10 minutes trying to find a way in, when the postman arrived with a letter from her brother. He had been staying with her a few weeks earlier, and the letter contained a spare key to the house, which he had borrowed and forgotten to return.

    It was a hot evening in June in El Paso, Texas when patrolman Allen Falby accidentally crashed his motorcycle into a speeding truck. Businessman Alfred Smith witnessed the accident and was the first person on the scene. Falby lay bleeding to death from a severed artery in his leg. Quickly, Smith removed his tie and fashioned an effective tourniquet from it. When the ambulance crew arrived, they credited Smith with saving Falbys life. Falby eventually recovered, and returned to police work. Five years later, he reported to an accident scene along Highway 80. A car had smashed into a tree, and the driver was bleeding to death from a severed artery in his leg. Falby pulled the man from the car and applied a tourniquet. While trying to make the man more comfortable, he suddenly recognized the victim. It was Alfred Smith, the same man who had saved his own life five years earlier. One good tourniquet deserves another, quipped Falby.

    Brenda Rawson became engaged to Christopher Firth in 1961, and he gave her a nice diamond ring. She was heartbroken when she lost the ring while on vacation in Lancashire, England. In 1979 she was talking with her husbands cousin, John. They were discussing metal detectors when John mentioned that 18 years earlier, one of his kids had discovered a diamond ring near Lancashire. It was her ring.
