So there I was cleaning and wiping down my backpack for my trip to Newfoundland last week, when all of a sudden I noticed that something had fallen to the ground?? Looking closly at what had fallen, I realized that it was a 50 Euro bill!!! I must have hid it in my pack from when I was in Europe in Sept. Man what a lucky break...I see this a sign, this is the first 50E towars my next adventure!!!

I love finding money.

When I go out clubbing I use a different bag/purse than I usually carry around. So when I stumble in at night in my drunken state i toss my purse in the corner of the room. A couple of weeks later when I go out again I always find lots of money inside that I had forgotten about. Though it's mostly just toonies and loonies.

congrats cd that must be a sign.
