My goodness, what a breathtaking story I just stumbled upon.

Imagine finding a 95 year old message in a bottle.

Now imagine that you found this message in a bottle IN YOUR HOUSE. Not just in your house, but hidden under the floorboards of the bedroom you grew up in. It was there the whole time!

On top of that–this isn’t just some random message in a bottle sent by a stranger.

No, this 95 year old message in a bottle was hidden by your own ancestors!

If you can imagine the above scenario, you might get close to the sense of wonder felt by Jean B. Evans, under whose bedroom the bottle was found.

The bottle was discovered in 1974, and in 2011, Jean wrote a brief blog post about the experience. You simply must read it. Click here!
