This Man Was Cutting Into His Kitchen Ceiling When He Discovered A Hidden Purse



this man was cutting into his kitchen ceiling but he discovered a hidden purse bobby cap siddhis was in the process of renovating his mother's house in holiday Florida when he made a rare and exciting discovery indeed as he was taking apart a soffit with a crowbar an unusual object tumbled out of the ceiling and hit him right in the face Bobby aged 34 an aircraft mechanic from Sierra Vista Arizona had bought the house with his wife Megan 31 in 2009 and on June 1st 2017 they arrived in holiday to begin repairs on finally in Florida and working on our house Megan wrote on Facebook some before and during pictures just to show that we haven't burnt the palace down yet the pair's renovation plans included repainting the walls and removing an obtrusive soffit that jutted across the kitchen ceiling but all work came to a halt with these surprise discovery what's more after Megan published photos of it on Facebook national news outlets weren't knocking on their door Bobby had begun the job by cutting into the soffit with an electric saw then he took a crowbar to it and started levering it on a place the panels cracked away easily so far so good then however Bobby had now created a situation that demanded immediate attention by tearing a hole in the kitchen ceiling Bobby had exposed part of the attic above somewhat puzzling moreover there appeared to be a number of objects buried beneath the insulation in fact he was alerted to the cache when something fell out and hit him Bobby really wanted to tear down the soffit at 8 o'clock at night and I couldn't stop him Megan wrote in a Facebook post in June of 2017 then this 1940s to 1950s genuine alligator purse from Cuba fell out of the ceiling so not a bad night after all unfortunately the alligator purse was not the kind of accessory you'd want to show off in fact it was quite hideous complete with head tail and legs the skin of a single baby alligator had been stitched into its back and cover this was definitely a novelty not a fashion accessory meanwhile after locating a stamp stating that the purse was genuine alligator skin and made in Cuba Bobby checked it for further clues there was nothing to suggest that it contained anything of interest however much less something of value instead Bobby found his real prize hidden in the whole stuff just keeps falling from our ceiling mehgan's subsequently wrote in a Facebook post now it's someone's wedding album a wedding album isn't of course the first thing you might expect to find stashed in an attic moreover flicking through the pages Bobby and Megan were wowed I reached in the insulation and pulled out this wedding book Bobby told ABC news it's old and kind of dusty and I said that's pretty incredible just seeing something nostalgic like that I have no idea why they'd keep it up in the Attic the ceremony appeared to have taken place in the 1960s it was a classic white wedding complete with traditional attire and bridesmaids who the album belonged to and why they left it in the house were however a mystery indeed were the pictured couple even alive or together anymore my first reaction was wow what a beautiful wedding Megan told ABC news I sat looking through it and thought we need to find these people but without anything to identify the couple except wedding photos taken decades ago there seemed to be little hope of finding them nonetheless understanding the huge sentimental value of the album Megan was determined to try it Bobby and I got married five years ago and all our photos are Digital she said in 1963 they didn't have digital photos this book is all they had and I want to get it back to them for that reason fortunately Bobby and Megan did find a clue hidden inside the hole an invitation from a mr. and mrs. Gerald Lau to the marriage of their daughter Marguerite the groom was a mr. Joseph gargy oh and the event was scheduled for Saturday September 14th 1963 at 3:00 p.m. the venue meanwhile was st. Thomas apostle Roman Catholic Church on 87th Street and 88th Avenue in Woodhaven Queens New York and the reception was billed for later in the evening at the senior petty officers mess at Brooklyn's New York Naval Shipyard cocktail hour at 6:00 p.m. who had a note at the bottom Bobby and Megan now had a real chance of locating the couple if they were still around and when Megan put out a shout on Facebook she received thousands of replies from commenters interested parties and amateur genealogists Plus before long the media picked up on the story – Bobby and I were just interviewed by a reporter in New York about the wedding album that fell out of the ceiling in our Florida home Megan wrote on Facebook the story airs tonight I hope we find the family and we get to return her memories to her fingers crossed the story was in fact picked up by Fox News and a host of other outlets and soon enough all the coverage paid off On June 8th Megan announced that they had located Marguerite and returned the album and purse to her the experience said Megan had been a privilege she's the sweetest lady and both of us were very emotional reminiscing about her wedding day she wrote this has been a very humbling experience for both Bondi and I and we'll never forget it Thank You Marguerite for sharing your memories with us and we look forward to future visits with you Marguerite though grateful for the return of the album has requested that her privacy is respected meanwhile Bobby and Megan's renovation work continues who knows how their new home will shape up but the discovery of a long-lost wedding album in the Attic surely bodes well for their future together let us know your thoughts in the comments you

    My thoughts in the comments are that the AI narrator needs to be better programmed in spoken English.

    My thoughts are if Margaret was really happy to get the photos back, and had the means…maybe she could have offered to finish renovations to the kitchen.

    some of you people make some of the most off the wall comments i have ever seen. the attic is where you put everything especially if your a very organized, hate clutter and a clean person. my family put everything in the attic and kept out 1 picture of current memories and a few extra wedding photos. everything else when into a container and thrown in the attic.

    lol i dont thing some of you even know what an attic is for….. i mean honestly.
