see that? it's not just here that ppl are tossing their change, it goes on everywhere, all you have to do is watch for it, you hardly have to go out of your way to find any.
i feed street cats at night, so I'm all over the place, but I have a route that efficiently leads me thru a long line of parking lots, and I have learned to just watch the pavement where street lights are giving off a glare. I watch for gleaming disks on the pavements.
but I look for other things, too. wads of paper can sometimes be cash, though 99 times out of 100 it's a wad of dud scratch-off lottery tickets or some other discarded paper.
but last night I was just plain lucky. I found my usual handful of change, $1.34.. three quarters, three dimes, four nickels and nine pennies. some nights a little more, some nights a little less. I would have been satisfied with just the $1.34, but my luck must have kicked in last night.
i found a wad of $3 in a grocery store parking lot & the wind blew a $20 bill out from under a buttonwood hedge, in the middle of convenience store's large parking lot, right in front of me, good thing I was looking down or I would have missed it.
three dollars I found in a folded-up wad.
that twenty rolled out in front of me, I had to leap off my bike and stomp my foot down onto it cos it was fixin to blow across the parking lot.
it was pretty breezy last night due to the tropical system approaching the atlantic coast of florida, we had some weakened rain bands blow thru, just some sprinkles really, but accompanied by gustier winds, and I tend to find paper money on windy nights. I just know where to look & to be watchful on windy nights. sometimes paying attention pays off.
it's just like those eight dollar bills I found last week. I very nearly completely overlooked them. had I not been looking at the ground I never would have seen them.
lol, finding stray cash is great. it's just as great as picking collectible coins from circulation.
the last time I found a twenty was almost two years ago.
