May 13: Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Found 29 cents in three finds. Got up early to buy my wife a special present. First Stop, the Wal-mart in Simi Valley... Found 2 pennies. Next find of a penny was made at the Venice Beach Pier parking lot. The families got together at C&O Trattoria in Venice Beach -- 18 of us -- Five MOMS! On the way home, a soda stop at 7-11 on Lincoln Blvd. in Ocean Park produced a quarter and a penny -- both were lying near magazines.
What did mommy get this year? An Ipod Nano, Griffin leather case for the Nano and Logitech MM-50 Connecting dock with speakers. She's Rockin Now! That's our third Ipod -- just can't get enough of the Ipod. My daughter has an Ipod Mini and I've got the new clip-on shuffle -- I can wear it and play tennis!
