Journal Post: 176.4 lbs; 77¢, 22 pennies, 4 nickels, 1 dime, 1 quarter. 11 glass bottles retired. Found a dime as I picked up one of the bottles, would not have seen dime otherwise. Residual Walk to the Grocery: 16¢, one dime, one nickel, one penny, in two different curb finds. Total find, 93 cents.
Feature Post: I play favorites, some of my money fines are more fun than others. Today’s feature will highlight several finds that gave the MoneyWalker more than usual pleasure.
47¢ penny scatter in a real estate parking lot. Hey buddy, don’t take your subprime frustration out on the poor pennies.
2 quarters in adjacent pay newspaper stands, USA Today and Times Picayune. What’s up with that, both the national and local news were so bad—keep the money!
1$ dollar bill in a Shell station drive through carwash, inside the carwash. I wonder if the guy washed behind his ears.
½ dollar in concrete chard near a drainage grate. This baby goes into my Found Money Hall of Fame.
25$ dollars wadded together as two tens and a five on the ground but under a post office mail deposit drive-up. Hey pal, next day delivery is cheaper.
Seven quarters in a scatter found outside a bar and grill that features slot machine poker. I hope this guy called a cab.
68 ¢ found on a Rallys (hamburger drive through) picnic table. Those cheap burgers can cause some really serious heartburn.
Ten dollar bill in the parking lot of a locally popular restaurant. There went the tip money.
55¢ under a pay station for pre-paying parking slips. I am surprised the meter maids didn’t cuff me.
Happy St Patrick’s day next Tuesday, may the luck of the Irish be with you and the lbs come flying off as the coins come flying in.
