FMJ - Day 102

$10.09 found on Day 102. (1 $10 bill, 1 nickel, & 4 pennies) It was a day of searching for a new pair of tennis shoes as my trusty pair of Adidas sneakers is now a "discontinued model" and I haven't been able to find a size 13 anywhere. So, off I went... and after 6 six different shops and trying on 14 different tennis shoes... I settled for a pair of New Balance 653 sneakers. Ready for play tomorrow morning.

Our first find - a penny - was made on Biscuit's morning walk. The second find was a penny at In-N-Out burger in Moorpark (lunch with Maya and my wife.) The third find was a penny at Finish Line in the Simi Valley Towncenter Mall (shoe hunt.) A stop at Walmart in Porter Ranch provided a nickel for our fourth find while shopping in the store and a $10 spot, our fifth find, on the way out to the parking lot. The sixth find happened during a stop for gas at ARCO on L.A. Ave. -- a penny found near the pump.

FMJ Factoid: The average amount of money I have found per day since starting this blog is 32 cents.

FMJ - Total Found: $492.12
Since Blog Inception: $32.52
Bottles & Cans Return Fund: $439.40

Awesome find! It's nice to see the elusive $10's and $20's in found money blogs :)

Excellent find. Liza was hoping for a $50 this morning... but so far no dice.

Thanks. Bill finds don't happen verry often... definitely a morale booster.

Brian: I hear Atlantic City is open for business... Maybe the $50.00 could happen there.
