A message in a bottle that was tossed into the ocean off Barnegat Bay in New Jersey has turned up in North Carolina -39 years later.
The note was sealed in a Schaefer beer bottle. It was dated Aug. 17, 1969 and reads:
"Like, whoever gets this...have a groovy day. This is no trash talk, man. I wish you the best, whoever and whenever, dude. We're cool here.
Enjoying our brown rice and beans. Got into some bad shit yesterday or whenever that was. Anyway I crashed. Maybe last night.
Ever since I crave brown rice and beans.
That's the way it goes, man. You get into some bad shit and it turns out to help your health. Everything balances out.
Ying and Yang thing.
Post-Summer of Love
Getting my head together.
Hope in your time we're all free from hangups.
