FMJ - Day 288

January 9, 2007: Found 13 cents -- a dime and three pennies -- at the Plaza at Simi. I had lunch at Panda Wok... cheap, tasty and quick. The kids wanted to go to Wendy's on L.A. Ave. for chicken Nuggets and a Frosty when they returned from school... we found six pennies there.

Hey, I found a single sterling silver "semi-hoop" earing at the ARCO last night... I didn't post it as I didn't think it was real. Today, I found the "925" marking on it. I've got a box that I keep these finds in... one day, I'll weigh it and sell it off as "scrap silver." It will get added to the "fund" upon sale.

That's a great idea! (saving silver to sell later on)... We found a few bits of gold last year but not enough to substantiate a sale thus far.
