Tuesday, December 5, 2006

Today I found 58 cents . . .. 2 dimes, 1 quarter, and 13 pennies.

First and foremost, my blog has been updated. Hopefully someone will take the time to read the updates from my trip to Europe (November 22 to December 4th) since it took awhile to post it all. There are also a few good pictures from the trip.

I didn’t have to work today so I had the entire day free to recover from jetlag. In the afternoon I met my friend John for lunch. On the way there I stopped at the Kwick Kar Wash and found eight cents (all pennies). At the Chinese restaurant where we ate I found a penny in the parking lot.

In the evening I went to the post office and after that I stopped at the car wash next to the post office. There I found 13 cents (one dime & three pennies). The final find of the evening was 11 cents (one dime & one penny), which I found in the laundry room at my apartment complex. In a late find I found 25 cents (one quarter) in the laundry room when I went to put my laundry in the dryer. It was sitting on a table.

Since I was out of town at the end of the month I now offer a review of the month of November, as well as a summary of my European finds:
