Wine art thou?

No ducats hidden in this ewer.

The wine was great. Maybe a little too great.

We're up $1.17 since the last post. Pennies, quarters and, of late, dimes have been hot.

I'm Rich!

I started this blog two years ago and after a year and change (har) I slowed down on posting because I was tired of picking up pennies and trying to come up with something clever to say about it every day. So I moved to a neighborhood where my chances of finding fifty dollar bills might be better. I'm in the Financial District now and I still pick up change every day and the training has paid off. It paid $17 in fact. I found $17 on John Street! It was next to a car, someone had clearly lost it from a pocket while getting out of the car. A ten and seven ones.

Also, about two months ago, I dove on a fiver that was loose on the platform of the uptown 4,5,6 trains at 14th street during morning rush. So, I'm up $22 and ready to start posting again.

I figure I've collected about $5 of small change in the months that I didn't post. So, I'm adding $32 to my collected total.

New Money for a New Year

It rained pennies last night in Manhattan. We picked 13 of them up this morning. And a quarter.

.38 but not quite a Saturday Night Special (it was a Thursday)
