Journal Entry: Weight = 172.4; Coinage = $.84, 29 pennies, 3 dimes, 1 quarter; Glass bottles = 4; Ground Scores = 2; Best coinage find = several black pennies near various curbs.
Today was an experimental walking day. Several new or infrequently traveled streets were exercised. Not much coinage but several pennies had turned black by a lengthy exposure to the elements. It felt good to put them back in circulation. A recycled shirt has been placed on the electric pole near our street sidewalk with this simple explanation, “Washed, please take!” I wonder how long it will last?
