July 8: After an early dinner at an Italian Restaurant in Thousand Oaks, I found a folded wad of bills on the sidewalk. The bills totaled: $77.00! This is our biggest find of cash ever. This single find amounts to a full 9.6% of all Found Money Jar finds. As of this day, the Found Money Jar now stands at over $800.00 in finds.
One funny thing about this find is that about two minutes before it happened I had left my wife at the restaurant so that I could fetch our car and pick her up at the door. As I started off for the car, I thought to myself that it would be neat to find a large amount of cash before I returned to pick her up. Strangely, there was this older couple who smiled at me as they passed me on the sidewalk which was just at the moment that this thought came to mind and then I few seconds later, I make the $77.00 find. Premonition, maybe?
We made two other finds today. 11 cents at the McDonald's on Yosemite Ave. and 12 cents at the Jack in the Box on Moorpark Rd.
