Extra Inning Nightmare….

Today we found 2.86 in change and 66 bottles and cans.

The Red Sox found winning tough once again, this time losing a heartbreaker to the Tigers in 13 innings, 3-2. The pitching did all they could, but the bats failed to respond. Ivan Rodriguez muscled one just past the outstretched glove of Coco Crisp to secure the victory for Detroit. I’m hoping that we can at least salvage the final game before the break. It would be nice to get a victory.

Money Report – Michele had good luck on her morning walk with Lexi finding a total of 57 cents (2 quarters, 1 nickel, and 2 pennies). The first 32 to it came on Allen Street, and then she found quarter near Metrocast near the corner of Railroad Avenue and Pleasant Street. A little later we needed to run a couple of errands. During those stops we found a penny at the Dunkin Donuts and a penny at Hannafords.

The rest of the came on our usual evening walk. First, at the car wash, we came across a real nice stash of coin, 2.13 in all (4 quarters, 8 dimes, 2 nickels and 23 pennies). Most of the coins were in a small pile on top of a vacuum island. There were, however, several coins strewn about on the ground. Next, we found a single penny at the Cumberland Farms, followed by 3 pennies at the Depot and a dime at the skateboard to complete the total.

Good Night and Good Hunting~
