Why, you ask? Because a reader of Found Money in the Street commented a week or so ago that they had found more than $200 this year already! Wow!
They said they found a lot of money at car washes and high school parking lots. Well, I'm a monkey see, monkey do kind of gal, so I stopped at a couple of car washes last week. Didn't find a thing. And today it's nice out so I drove to a high school and parked a few blocks away. I walked over and walked around most of the parking lot. Nothing.
Well, I did find a Coke can so I picked that up to add to my pile for recycling. I also shot a photo of this little guy. But no money. I think I need to go when the cars are gone! Doh.
Next, I went to the library to return some DVDs and this book. Under the printer table was this dime! I scooped it up and did a photo reenactment at home (imagine blue carpet and it's very similar).
