The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth

Journal Entry: Weight = 174.4, Coinage and Paper = $10.60, 30 pennies, 4 nickels, 1 dime, and one wadded ten dollar bill; Glass Bottles Retrieved = 2; Ground Scores = 2. Beside the ten was a penny, thus a mixed mode scatter, the MoneyWalker's first.

For weeks and weeks, the MoneyWalker has been shut out in the category of paper currency. The Change Pot New York City family has reported several paper currency finds, and out west the Numismatic eagle-eye has found her share of foldable green, but not here. Yet, except for one little whine last week, never a peep was heard.

Then it happened this morning. Rather than take the ten block direct walk to the Shell station (a frequent money spot), I skipped one block over to Iberville St. And just before I turned back to the main road, there in the curb was a crumpled ten with a one penny sentinel by its side. The six month draught was over.
