Missing...

Last night after I felt I had truly celebrated Cinco de Mayo, I came home to do yard work. Please contain yourself; I know you are all jealous of my exciting life. Nothing says “I live the fast life” like yard work. However, last night something exciting happened while I was mowing. I found a dollar. A One Dollar Bill! I was so excited. I never find money. I’m always looking for money. I mean, I’ve found the pennies, an occasional quarter lying on the street, but never bill money. I quickly snatched the dollar and stuck it in my shoe. I didn’t have a pocket so my shoe lace had to work until I was finished mowing.

After I finished mowing I went on a walk with Sister #1. I made it down the street when I remembered my new dollar. I looked down at my shoe and discovered the dollar had escaped. I was so bummed. I was a dollar richer and I lost it! I had big plans for that dollar. It was going to pay for some groceries. If anyone sees my dollar blowing in the wind, please return it.

Last year in Florida Brett said he found a dollar and asked if he could keep it. He found it in the parking lot of some resturante. I told him yes. Then I looked at it. Yeah, it was a $20 bill!!

Mona- Maybe we'll find money while we are in FL.

Renee- Oh I didn't thin of that. I hope I didn't turn it into mulch either. Hopefully, someone else will find my dollar and buy themselves something.

Holly- I'm glad I could help.

This is going to sound crazy...but I found a dollar bill when I was running around OC....it was on a Tuesday, could've been May 6th, on Benson Road, maybe it was the dollar you found?
