    Money Blow'in Like Leaves !RETURNED

    I Just left the local store This afternoon . I realized that it wasn't leaves blowing across the road . There were bills every where , Credit cards , and a wallet .
    I slammed my breaks on , crank into reverse , I started picking up money first . Other cars were going by making the money blow around more . The wallet and cards were off to the side of the road , all over the place . Cars were running over bills - they were flying up in the air ! I felt like I was in some sort of Game Show - "Grab The Money Without Getting Hit ".

    I gathered everything I could find , brought it home . There were over $60 bucks . Ones ,Fives , Twenty's , Visa , Concealed Weapon Permit , SS card , Medical cards , Drivers license, etc .

    There were 3 different addresses for the girl - I checked the Phone book - nothing. I stuffed everything back in the wallet and I went back to the store and asked the counter-lady if she recognized the face on the license . Yes she did ! Lives 3 houses down from the store . I knocked on her door - She now has it back !

    I told her (and her boyfriend) they should go walking down the road to see if I missed anything - big wind storm tomorrow (Noel) It was also in a School Zone , so there could be some little kids finding some spending money next week !

    Re: Money Blow'in Like Leaves !RETURNED

    I was driving down the road one time when i saw a Bank bag in the road it was grey with a zipper...
    it was realy fat....
    i hit the skids grabbed it and opened it, it was full of 1s 5s 10s 20s 50s and 100s and change too
    some where over 3 grand and under 4
    I watched the local papers
    called the cops several times durring the week to see if anyone had reported losing money
    nothing matched even close and i wasnt to going to give it to the cops to take home so i spent every last penny...LOL
    this was many years ago and it was a lot of money for the times

    Nice work! It's nice to know they're still good folks and if I happen to ever loose or leave my wallet, I sure hope you're in the area!
    I've been known to leave my pocket book at McDonalds, quick stops and inside bathroom stalls...I've been lucky so far and it was either still there or someone turned it in!

    Yes, I'm late to this post, but those folks would not be anywhere near recovered from loss of that plastic!

    You did good by returning that wallet, but (there is always a but, aint there?) I can make out a lot of info from the picture you posted just by viewing it using MS picture viewer and zooming in. If I wanted to I could probably enhance the photo using some real photo imaging software enough to get all the info off the license.
