New sport

Augh, I know I'm posting a lot but I thought of a great new activity for me to do to get out of the house!

Penny hunting. Going into store parking lots and looking for dropped change. Now of course there's a point system to this game.

10pts- PENNY!
-25pts- Someone asks you what you're doing
-100pts- Security asks you to leave since you look suspicious

:3 I think I'll go out and play this game soon. I'll report back my score later.

0! D; I got zero points today on my way to the grocery store. I did find 3 bottle caps that looked like quarters um.. 75almost points XD

    Saw a morning show the other day about a family (both parents & 2 little girls) that did this type thing - picking up all change they saw on the groung or floor. Don't remember how long it took them but it was less than a year. They put all the change in jars - they found $1.034.00. Money that people, for the most part, deliberately threw down. I'd say this could be a very lucrative new sport. Of course, if you look too suspicious, it could be bail!!!

    That's to funny --you have me smiling on that one Janice..
    I heard years ago that when you find a penny that they are from heaven. Tarrien , I'll have to remember your point system and then when I find these. I'll go ahead and save them in a jar marked for a special something.

    My kids and I can play this game at home and probably rack up a few hundred! For some reason, my family is always dropping money in the house or leaving it in our pockets. Laundry day is like payday around here. The money I find in coat pockets and pant pockets is amazing. Now if I combine it with looking for money outside, maybe I can retire early.
