Things I Saw on My Walk

The weather in Phoenix has been cooperating. That means the 100-degree days are gone (for a few months any way) and I'm able to get outside without fear of fainting or sweating to death. I took a walk this afternoon and guess what?

YEP! I found this penny in the street. As you can see, it's filthy dirty, but that never stopped me before (and won't again). I also took some pictures of things I saw on my walk. I need to break out my bike. Any day now...

This Found Money FACTS:
Denomination: 1 penny
Year: 199something (too dirty to read!)
U.S. Mint:  Who knows?
Condition:  old, dirty, beat to heck
How many coins/bills found to date: a lot, lost count with the jackpot
How much found money to date:  $9.92

Found a Quarter!

Oh happy day! I went to Fresh and Easy today, and while I was checking out, I found this quarter in the change slot at the register! Yay! All of their lanes are self checkout and obviously the last person (or at least a previous customer) fell down on the job of taking their change.

I'm excited! I might just break $10 for the year at this pace. Have you found any money lately?
