THERE IS A WOMAN WHO LIVES ON ALLEN RD. IN DEARBORN WHO LOST HER
YOUNG DAUGHTER ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO. AS THE STORY GOES, EVERY NIGHT AT
DUSK, SHE PLACES A DOLL IN THE WINDOW WHICH CAN BE SEEN FROM THE
ROAD. THE DOLL IS DRESSED IN APPROPRIATE FASHION IN ACCORDANCE

An Old Saying:

Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers.

Submitter comment:

It is not certain just when, or from whom my grandmother first heard this little saying; although, since it seems to be a typically American little adage, I'm quite certain that she did not hear it before she came to this country in 1910.
