.37 and she's yours

Since we last checked in we have found pennies in pools, on beaches, on the subway, at the registers in grocery stores, and in the rain on the sidewalk. Same goes for nickels and dimes. Today, there were seven pennies and a dime shining up at us from our own rain-slicked stoop as we left for work/school.

Total haul for the last nine days = .37

TOTAL to date = $26.39

U-Haul Ten Cents

I found a dime near a U-Haul lot and thought this picture of a walrus on the side of one of their trucks was funny. That's a ten cent laugh for you.

Don't hate me, but I did not pickup a shiny penny and a nickel on the subway yesterday.

I was too tired from playing football and rollerblading. I haven't been that physical since I was five years old breaking rocks on a chain gang.

Please note, I'm done with the football and whiffle ball and Frisbee and rollerblading for a while because they're cutting into my riches. When catching the game-winning Hail Mary pass costs you six cents because you're too tired to bend over and pick them up - it's time to rethink your priorities.

Well, you can count on me. I'm going for sure riches over uncertain health benefits and probable injuries. To hell with Frisbee and football.

And I'll leave whiffle ball to the Beastie Boys.

Total haul for the last few days = .10 and some sore muscles

TOTAL to date = $26.02

Love for MJ in Harlem

Dry as a bone here in Harlem today but raining copper. And Nickel. We found 17 pennies and one nickel walking along 125th Street, which is one long Michael Jackson memorial. People must be so busy looking at all the Michael Jackson memorabilia that they don't care if they drop money.

The best MJ tribute was a huge tarp that had a close-up of Michael's face from the Thriller album (with tiger cheated in) airbrushed onto it and a guy with a camera charging people to have their portrait taken in front of the tarp. I may go back this weekend and get my photo taken there.

We add the whopping .22 we found today to the paltry .03 found over the weekend in Virginia and we have a nice round .25 cents.

Total haul today = .25 and some love for MJ, RIP
