Journal Entry, June 13, 2009

Journal Entry: Weight = 174 lbs.; Coinage = $.56, 21 pennies, 3 nickels, 2 dimes; Glass bottles = 4; Ground Scores = 3; Best find = 2 nickels found on a 20 ft detour to drop two glass beer bottles into a trash receptacle. The nickels were side by side smiling up at me as I raised the lid. Yesterday, all my money spots were clicking; today, was a struggle.

It has been a long time since I have found paper currency. Summer walks in New Orleans are becoming steamy with high heat and high humidity.

Yesterday I was able to recycle two perfectly fine clothing items found on walks. I wash them and place them on an electric wooden pole on a busy pedestrian street with this sign: “Washed, please take!” I think the gypsy guitar player is wearing one of my recycled shirts.

  1. I love the photo! The tidbit about the shirt makes it even greater.

    Regarding yesterday's post: Five years ago while on a very strict and successful diet I read the book Fast Food Nation. Didn't eat meat for months afterward. Maybe I should read it again AND see the movie.
