Friends and MoneyWalking

Journal Entry: Weight = 176.6; Coinage = $.96, 11 pennies, 1 nickel, 3 dimes, 2 quarters (two bagger); Glass Bottles = 5; Ground Scores = 1; Best coinage find = the collective hot spots produced--a quarter at the Shell Station, a dime at Dolly's Deli and station, 18 cents at Burger King drive through, a dime at Delgado Community College news stand, and a quarter at the Bean Gallery Coffee Shop.

Feature Entry: For motivation and walking, nothing can beat walking with friends to make the minutes fly by. For years, the MoneyWalker jogged with three close friends and professional colleagues each day at noon. Many of conversations started or ended with this expression, "This is jogging talk," which mean the same as "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas."

I received an e-mail today from a great friend that moved to South Carolina. He taught me the basics of moneywalking. What follows are the contents of the e-mail:

Hello former money walking student of mine,

Just wanted to let you know that despite your recent successes, you still have a ways to go to catch up with the master. Yesterday, Gail and I joined nine other couples and went up to Highlands, North Carolina, for lunch and a play. After lunch we walked a couple of blocks to the playhouse. I was near the back of the pack. On the way, I spotted in the street near the curb what appeared to be a couple of dollar bills all wadded up. Everyone else had walked right past it. It turned out to be a $20 bill and a $10 bill. Everyone was very impressed and jealous, as I am sure you are.

The Money Walker

Notice how the cad signed off, "The Money Walker." Me jealous, huh!
