Woman Finds Bicycle She Lost Over 50 Years Ago Swallowed In Tree

Puz, now 99, received the bike in 1954 as a gift from a member of her community in Vashon Island, Wash., in part, because she had been recently widowed.

“People were very sympathetic and generous,” Puz said, according to ABC News. “We were given a girl’s bike and my 8-year-old son Don seemed the natural one to ride it.”

But little Don felt riding a girl's bike cramped his style so he, in the way little boys do, conveniently "lost" the bike.

Or so the Puz family thought, until recently when Helen Puz read in the local newspaper about a bike that had been "swallowed up" in a tree and was now stuck in the trunk five feet off the ground, according to Discover Washington State.

1. I found a grease-gun I lost some 40 years ago grown into a black cherry tree...so pissed I lost dads

greaser and had to buy him another out of my lawn mowing funds. After I saw it, I remembered the day I left it there.

Love that gun now...brings back good time memories.

Giant Stadium.
