Washington, DC


Just a random/awesome tutorial I found while trying to understand what the hell pickleball is

“Dear PoPville,

Last night walking home from Showtime I stumbled upon some pickleball paddles seemingly left in the dirt by the curb on 1st NW and U/V street. Originally I thought lucky me because this is the fastest growing sport in America and all the rage recently, in addition to the equipment being kind of pricey. This morning after doing some research, I have come to the realization that these paddles were most likely not left on the street for a good home but almost certainly dropped, lost, or forgotten as their Amazon retail value is a combined $250.”

If these are yours email me at [email protected] I’ll connect with you OP so you can describe what they look like.

“Dear PoPville,

I found an engagement ring near the Columbia heights metro this morning around 9:15. I would love to get it back to its owner. If whoever is claiming it could send a picture or description of the ring to verify it belongs to them I’d like to return it.”

If you think it’s yours please email me at [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP. Thanks.

“Dear PoPville,

I came home after work on Friday and found this giant kiddie pool in our backyard. Assuming it was our basement neighbor’s, I sorta brushed it off until my husband noticed it and said, “No way…earlier today I remember I was deep into some document and swore I saw something big falling out of the corner of my eye [from the office on the 2nd floor]…but then forgot about it and moved on. Guess that actually did happen!” 😂😂😂 We checked with our neighbor and confirmed that it wasn’t his either. Read More

11th and Park Road, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I believe it must have slipped off at or around the northwest corner of Park Road NW and 11th Street NW (outside of Meridian Pint). I’m crushed by the loss of this very sentimental item and if by some miracle one of your readers finds it I would be eternally grateful if they could notify you [[email protected]] or return it to Meridian Pint. It is a tungsten wedding band with a subtle rose gold inlay. There is some sort of manufacturer’s mark on the inside but otherwise no markings. Thank you!”

“Dear PoPville,

An acquaintance of mine was in D.C. from out of town this past weekend and suffered a car break-in on Saturday night (11/17) between 8 and 11:30 p.m. She was parked below I-695 near the corner of 8th and I (Eye) Streets SE.

She is missing a distinctive-looking messenger bag similar to the one in the photo — it’s a reddish color with a Day of the Dead/Día de los Muertos-style skull — and some Mead spiral notebooks that were inside. The notebooks are important to her because they contain a bunch of her creative writing.

Both spiral notebooks have geometric designs — one in purple, the other possibly in green or black. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

A little kid left his stuffed turtle on the L2 bus and I’d like to try and get it back to him! At around 6:30pm Thursday 10/25 I was on the L2 bus traveling south toward Farragut square. I was sitting in the very back of the bus and a little boy (around age 3 or 4) got on the bus with his mother around the Van Ness area, they sat on the other side of the back of the bus. They got off at the stop right in front the Cleveland park library. A few stops later I noticed a little green stuffed turtle, which looked well loved, sitting on the seat.”

If its your child’s turtle please email [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP.

“Dear PoPville,

Hoping you can help me! A woman’s watch fell off on the metro (Rosslyn, on the blue line) this morning and I couldn’t get it to her before the doors closed. She looked so bummed through the window and I would love to get it back to her. Maybe we can find her?”

We can and we will – Internet do your thing and when the lady sees this – please email [email protected] so I can connect you with OP.

“Dear PoPville,

I found a set of keys on H street NE and stared at them, torn, for a while. Do I leave them there in case the person comes back or retraces their steps? Do I take them and try to find the person? What does the PoPville world think is the best route here?

In other news, I have a set of keys that does not belong to me. If you lost some keys and want them back, tell me about them at [email protected]

(Spoiler alert: I took the keys. I left my info with two semi-identifiable locations on their keychain but no callbacks yet)”
