A man who found 2,000 in the pocket a second hand shirt in Buenos Aires tracked down the original owner.

The man, known only as Claudio, took the shirt back to the shop where he had bought it, reports Clarin newspaper.

Claudio told the shop assistant what had happened and, between them, the two tracked down the former owner of the shirt and returned the money.

The money's rightful owner, Patricia Grieco, had sold the shirt, which had belonged to her late father, because she was short of cash.

She said: "With examples like this one I am convinced that we can achieve a better world."

~~~~~~~ THIS & THAT:

The Unsolved Mysteries Of The Anatomy

Where can a man buy a cap for his knee?
Or the key to a lock of his hair?
Can his eyes be called an academy because there are pupils there?

Is the crown of your head where jewels are found?
Who travels across the bridge of your nose?
If you wanted to shingle the roof of your mouth would you use the nails on your toes?

Can you sit in the shade of the palm of your hand, or beat on the drum of your ear?
Can the calf in your leg eat the corn off your toe?
Then why not grow corn on the ear?

Can the crook in your elbow be sent to jail?
If so, just what did he do?
How can you sharpen your shoulder blades?
I'll be hanged if I know---do you?

Our 4-year-old grandson, Tristan, said to his mother one day, "I think we should pray more often for Jesus to come; I just don't know why it is taking Him so long to get here." His mother said, "I think God wants to give us more time so that more people will get to know Him." As Tristan thought about that he said, "You know, Mama, I don't know Him very well either I don't even know His last name."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

A man who hasn't said a word since he was found wandering in a wet black suit stunned carers by giving a virtuoso piano performance.

The man has not spoken since he was picked up by police in Sheerness, Kent, six weeks ago.

His talent came to light after staff at the Medway Maritime Hospital gave the man a pen and paper in the hope he would write his name.

Instead, he drew detailed pictures of a grand piano so workers sat him in front of the piano in the hospital's chapel.

Social worker Michael Camp said: "It is extraordinary. The first time we took him down to the piano he played for several hours, non-stop."

Several lines of inquiry have been followed, and the hospital brought in interpreters to see if the mystery patient was from Eastern Europe.

Social worker Michael Camp said the man, in his 20s or 30s, is usually very anxious but "comes alive" at the piano.

He added: "By the way he plays the piano he is clearly educated and intelligent. If someone comes forward with information then we can take this emotional case forward."

The National Missing Persons Helpline wants to hear from anyone who knows the man, dubbed The Piano Man.
