Happy Presidents' Day! I Found 39 Cents!

Okay, it's been ages since I've found big money, like a quarter! And today I found a quarter plus a dime and four pennies while taking a walk! The weather here is perfect, and in a few days it's supposed to rain so I decided to get out there and walk while it's nice. (And in a few months it'll be so hot I only walk to my car and inside stores, etc.)

The first coin I found was a penny down an alley. I didn't take my magnet but I did pick up random crap like nails and bottle caps. I need to make those tin can men so like to keep the supply built up. 

Then I was heading back home, happy I'd found at least one president on Presidents' Day and was walking on the street at an intersection. It was a residential area and no cars were coming, so I started trotting across the street when a shiny silver thing caught my eye. It was a quarter! 

Here's a photo, though it's not great quality. There was also a dime and two pennies all in one spot so I'm guessing someone was walking or riding a bike and out the money fell. Lucky me!

Then I was headed home, almost there and spotted another penny in the gutter part of the street. Whoopie!
