A Dry Spell But I Finally Found Some Money

I hadn't found any money since last Tuesday. A definite dry spell for me. But this is to be expected, I guess. The weather is heating up here in Arizona. We've already had a 100+ degree day and it's just April! Yuck. And with the heat, I stay inside more. A lot more.

But today I had to run some errands. First I hit the post office. No found money there. Then I went to the bank where I convinced the banker to let me continue to have my checking account for free instead of charging me $15 a month (it worked since I told him it was entirely up to him; I could move my money to my credit union, no problem). Back in my car, I spotted a penny on the ground before I shut the door! Then I hit the grocery store and found a penny on the floor on the way out. Yay! Only two cents but I'll take it.

I watched Moneyball when I got home. I had no idea what it was about (well, I knew it had something to do with sports but that was it; I didn't even know what sport). Luckily it was about baseball, the least offensive of them all. And this movie was great! I loved it. Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill really worked well together, and Moneyball was a book first, based on the true story of using statistics and metrics to choose ball players. I'd recommend it highly. 
What about you? Found any pennies (or bigger denominations) lately?
