When I was a kid (many years ago), my friend and I found $5. That was a lot of money back then. We bought 2 ice cold watermelons and 2 pints of strawberries and sat in a cemetery and ate it all.

Oh yeah.

We had no car for about 13 years and got around everywhere by bicycle. It's incredible what you find when you've got your head down riding hard.

One memorable one was a woman's handbag, which included her money and credit cards. When I got home I tried to phone her but she was continually engaged. I finally got through and she came around to collect it. Did she thank me? Well, that would have been nice. She actually abused me because I hadn't called her before she cancelled her cards.

Nice one, Ray.

And I did know that, Tom. Oscar Wilde was a clever man. It's one of those eternal truths that deserves a place alongside O'Toole's Corollary which says, "Murphy was an optimist."

A couple of years ago, I found a twenty dollar bill in the parking lot of a produce store.

I found a folded $100 bill about 40 years ago in a large public parking lot.

I would set up a fun way to tell the story.  For about ten years I would occasionally drop a quarter around a relative or a friend and of course they would tell me I had dropped it.

I would then simply say, "If I drop money and it makes a noise I don't pick it up anymore---I found a $100 dollar bill (x) years ago and I figure I'm ahead of the game."

I would then laugh at their expression and then promply pick it up.

Everyonne I tried it on got a kick out of it.
