The Ever Reliable Dime
Journal Entry, August 4, 2009: Weight = 173.8; Coinage = $.90, ten pennies, 2 nickels, 2 dimes, 2 quarters; Glass bottles = 1; Ground score = 1; Best coinage find = a dime at Dolly's Deli and gas pumps. Gas pumps at service stations often yield a few pennies, but Dollies with her two pump mini station gives up frequent silver. The dime is the MoneyWalker's most reliable coin in terms of value and frequency.
Note: After finishing my walk, my morning chore was to mow and edge the lawn. Found two quarters and one nickel on the sidewalk, a reward for fast initiation of a dreaded chore. Thus, this paragraph is an edit. Walking, finding coins, and writing a blog entry is so much more fun than chores. But duty calls once again, the trim edgings must be blown and raked. Also, the yard duty allowed me to burn an additional 200 calories.
