FMJ Hits $700 Mark on Day 421!

May 23: We found 2 quarters at Miller Park after a short tennis practice with Ajay. They were found in the soccer field along the sideline... most likely the coins fell from someone's pocket while sitting in their lawn chair to watch a game. With this find of 50 cents, the Found Money Jar is exactly at the $700 mark for overall money found since inception. That amounts to an average of 30 cents found per day over a total of 2,333 days since starting the Found Money Jar project on January 1, 2000.

We also found two baseballs along our walk on the ball fields. Since Ajay is now an official baseball nut, they'll come in very handy for batting practice.

Very impressive, Andy. Another 300 and you'll top that magic 1,000 mark.
