Tourist Found Money

Lately I've been finding a lot of quarters and more change lying around on the floor of stores. I think it's from tourists in a hurry to beat the heat and go camping or hiking or whatever they're doing as they drive through town.

I've found several quarters  in various vending machines:  water vending machines and newspaper vending machines mostly. I've also found money on the floor of stores and in parking lots, etc. The usual places. 
So, since I last posted, I've found a bunch of change. $3.44 worth! That's pretty good for a couple of weeks' worth. I also found a Rwanda coin marked 50. Cool! This is the first time I've found a coin from that country.

Have you found any coins or bills recently? Do tell!

Whoops, Long Time, No Post!

So, I see that it's been nearly a month since I last posted here. Whoops! I have found money but I've been busier than a one-armed paper hanger. Busy with work, busy with friends and family, just plain busy.

Anyway, here's what I've found since my last update:

$2.45 in change. This includes all denominations:  pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. No bills but that's okay. Tonight I took a short walk and found a dime.

I watched a really good movie recently: The Age of Adaline. Have you seen it? What did you think?
