Random Yet Not So Random Pic and Entry: 2 of 5



This is a fine example of a random picture that really isn't! Okay the people that read my blog regularly know I am doing an experiment to see how much change I get in a month. Customers tell me to keep the change, or they just leave there change sitting on the countertop. I pick it up and drop it in my pocket.

It's not going to well right now. We had a can sitting up at the desk for donations for a charity and the customers were dropping there change in there. It's over now, but I think I would have had way more than the 38 cents that I have right now.

Some experiment!

Still I will move forward and continue until I reach 31 days (June 16th). Still I am having a little fun with it. I have a penny from 1943! I don't think it is made of copper like the new ones, because its a funky grayish/silver color now. I wonder if it's worth more than...well a penny?

I was walking home last night from work, and I was searching the ground to see if I could find some money. I guess you could say that I kind of found some money. See up there in that picture, which is kind of blurry by the way, I apologize! I was walking by one of the TV stations and I saw a five dollar bill on the ground.

At first I couldn't believe my eyes. I looked down and sure enough, I saw Abraham Lincoln on it. When I went to pick it up it felt a little funny to me. I feel money all day long (that didn't come out right), so I know when something isn't right. It wasn't a real five, it was copied on some printer paper and conveniently placed on the ground. The funny thing is that the TV station had a light shining toward that money (hmmmmm).

First I dropped it and then I walked about 15 yards away from the said money. Then I thought to myself, "why not use this to your advantage". So I walked back, picked up the fake five and took a picture of it with my camera phone. I laughed and then I thought to myself, "I hope I'm not going to be on the news".

I thought printing U.S. currency the same length and width as "The Real McCoy" is illegal???

You're right, Charles, it is illegal. I'm sure the station's attorneys have found some loophole--myabe they didn't print it; maybe it is not precisely the same size as a five dollar bill, etc..

I know my penny jar overflows given enough time. Peraps, if you're patient, the same thing will happen for you.
