Day 227

Once again, I did not have any change until late in the day.

After dinner, I had to run out to drop something in the mail, and I used the opprotunity to do some change searching. At Starbucks I found 2 nickels and 2 pennies. At JR's Car Wash I found 2 dimes and 3 pennies. My final stop was at Popeye's Chicken where I have NEVER found change, but my perstance paid off tonight as I found 1 dime, 1 nickel and 1 penny.

While I was at JR's Car Wash, I was on the cellie with Chris, and I found a penny with some very odd bends, consdiering it was a shiney new penny. I tried my best to describe it to him, and he said that he felt it had a good mental picture of what it looked like. But he wants to judge his mental picture against the real thing, and I am interested to see how well I was able to describe it. So, here are pictures of the penny, Chris.......was the mental picture close to the real thing?

Total for the Day - $0.51
Total for the Race - $57.12

Interesting idea. A money finding race. Good luck.

Not a bad description at all. I had pictured it a bit more evenly bent on the sides, but all in all I have to give you props.

What Bailey is doing isn't finding money. Check out my site and you will see what hard work and lack of anything productive can accomplish!

Thanks for your note - I'm so glad to hear that you got an ING account!

Remembering how interest rates were 10-15 years ago, the 3.whatever % they pay isn't much...but it's 3x what our credit union pays! lol

And I love that paypal will transfer for free. They used to let you do billpay and send it right to the BECC, but they don't let you anymore. Bums.

Good luck on your change race. ;)
