Happy President's Day -- Found 12 Cents

Today I rode my bike to the post office and library even though they were closed. I dropped a letter in the outside mail box then returned some books to the library. On the way I rode my bike through nearly every parking lot I came to and I found some coins:

  • a penny in a restaurant drive through
  • 2 pennies in another restaurant drive through
  • a nickel in yet another drive through
  • a penny in the Target parking lot
  • a penny at a gas station near a pay phone
  • a penny somewhere (can't remember where!)
  • a penny in my parking lot when I got home

Not bad finding 12 coins with two president's images (Lincoln on the pennies and Jefferson on the nickel). Happy President's day!

I posed my found money next to a stuffed lion my friend mailed to me. Cute!
