Found a Nickel Under a Pallet

Today I went to the grocery store to get, no, not a turkey, but a ham. A lovely spiral-sliced honey ham. Yum! Anyway, as I was leaving, I spotted a nickel under a pallet. I'm not sure what was in the pallet but I nabbed that nickel!

I'm hoping it turns out looking as good as this one:





Will you be having a turkey this year?

Found Two Pennies Today

This morning I moseyed around the parking lot after I took out the trash and spotted a penny! Then this afternoon, I took a longish walk and found a penny beside the road. 

I wonder how much money is lying around that we all walk right by each day. I'm guessing a lot! 

These roosters were hanging around pecking the ground in a yard I walked by. They just kept on hunting and pecking, not minding me at all.

Have you found any money lately?
