A couple of days ago I went out for a walk, starting out from my house. About a block away, I waited at a traffic light, and I thought about how my husband had found a specimen for my small but mighty lost brake pad collection here some time back.
No idea why this thought came to mind. But I looked around the intersection anyway, because I had the feeling I was going to find one today.
Not there, I didn’t. But…about a mile later, along the edge of a parking lot, guess what.
Yes. A lost brake pad.
This one looks like it’s been out in the weather for a while. The parking lot where I found it is used intermittently for overflow vehicles from a nearby car sales lot but is empty right now and has been for a while. I guess this brake pad could date from some earlier use of this lot, even (the site is a former gas station) – just now coming to light.
It called to me. Yes, I think it did. That’s why I was looking and that is why I found it, and you can’t tell me any different!
Here is a photo of the other items in my collection:
