Introducing: The Shoegazer

I am The Shoegazer.  Welcome to my humble weblog.  The subject of this page is an uncanny ability I seem to have acquired.  I find money on the ground.  ALL the time.   I never find wallets.  I almost never catch anyone in the act, but when I do I of course return their lost bill, usually to a very thankful (and a bit more careful) person.  But sure enough, I keep my eyes to the ground and sooner or later the image of a dead president will come into view.  

 The good fortune started when I worked at an amusement park arcade one summer, where a watchful eye could pocket you a pound or two of quarters during an eight-hour shift.   Occasionally bills would turn up – a welcome addition to by pay of $5.50 (before taxes).

 From there it snowballed, finding $1 bills here, $20’s occasionally, and even a $50 bill (on the ground outside O’Briens pub in Allston, MA) and a folded crisp $100 sitting in a freshly fallen pile of snow in a Manchester, NH parking lot.

This blog was created to document my weird talent of finding money on the ground.  What I found, where I found it, and what I did with my windfall.
