Found 77 Cents!

Today I went to Ace Hardware to get a spare key made. When I was done, I decided to take my trusty magnet on a stick out of the trunk and walk around the large parking lot and behind the buildings (there's also a Food City, an auto parts store, and a bowling alley in the complex) to see what I could find.

Well, what I found was a bunch of metal junk and 77 cents! I was shocked and amazed! There is an empty building in one corner of the parking lot and in the dirt next to building I found the majority of this money. I found one quarter in the parking lot, a nickel in the street when I glanced over while walking on the sidewalk. Ta da! Jackpot!!
