Street Money Update! It’s been a long time…

July 28, 2009 at 10:40 pm (Street Money) (, , , , , , , )

All these things have been going on: We have traveled. We have walked. On roads. In parking lots. Through fields. At stores. By registers. Places that accumulate many, many people; with what would seem like endless opportunities to find loose change on the ground.

And yet…nothing.

Until Sunday. Pierogi Fest.  A virtual goldmine of pennies, dimes, nickels, quarters; change haphazardly stuffed into pockets, falling to the ground, waiting to be retrieved, while their people balance plates of steaming, delicious, Polish fare, and never even notice.

You would think. The streets should be shimmering with lost coins. But still…no.

Later, in a side lot, waiting for someone to finish something, trying to stay out of the way: a pay phone. Sticky, dirty, battered and chipped but containing no money. Keeping the youngest child from touching it at all, your desperate eye catches a glint of…something. Next to the phone, on the ground, there! Two little pennies hiding on the asphalt.

Glory! The slump is over. Losing streak finished. Rough patch transversed. Smooth sailing from here on out!

Two cents.

How long has it been?

Too long.

Street Money Update!

Penny by penny by penny…I guess it gives me something to type about every day.

Found another hot penny behind the car, in the Hinsdale Oasis parking lot, going to get a coffee, while trying to take a picture of that Camaro from the previous post. See, how it all comes together??

Anyway, another penny richer. Go HERE for the total.

HERE for the Camaro.

It’s not much. Hardly worth the post, but like I always say, “EVERY PENNY COUNTS”.

And it does. One more cent to the list!

Street Money Update…on the Front Page!

April 29, 2009 at 9:50 am (Street Money) (, , , , , , , , , )

In order to generate more interest in my craziness, or help you skip the post faster…I am putting the Street Money Updates on the front page too!!

Oh, I know…you are welcome!

All 10 of you out there haven’t been asking, but I’m just doing it anyway. PLUS…we had two exciting breakthroughs.

One: We broke the 10 buck barrier! Made it in just under May.

And number two: The boyfriend finally succumbed to our kooky will and picked up some stray money right off the ground!

(Special note to the BF: Now you will never escape!  …hahahaha)

Anyway, I’ll still keep the separate page, because I like to have a fast spot to just throw it in when I am lazy, but now I can make witty comments and post it for all my fans so that you can have something funny to read and get you thru your day!  But don’t bother today, checking both places, because I used the same hilarity. Why think of 2 funny things when I can just use one? Save it for the next time. It’s a limited resource people…as my family will gladly tell you.

Have a great day and when you are out walking around…LOOK DOWN!! (occasionally…to look for money…get it?…but look back up too because you don’t want to get hurt or walk into something…) Oh the jokes…

2009 Current Count (as of 4/29/09) : $10.24 (Broke the 10 dollar barrier!)

Found alot last night out and about. I didn’t find any. But my family did! Grand total: 53¢

By person:

Mason: 5¢

Stevie: 38¢ (she was working it! she was searching)

But the big news is the boyfriend! Making his first appearance in the Street Money page, after 4 years of our madness, he picked up…loose change! Off the ground in a parking lot sometime during his day! HA! We got him! It was only a dime, but that’s how it starts…(please laugh your most evil laugh…NOW!) Bwah hah hah….

Boyfriend: 10¢
