Default Its kind like finding a $20 in an old coat.

We recently moved to the Augusta Ga area and while cleaning out the Jeep I looked under the back seats and found 5 boxes of Blazer 45 acp. and 4 boxes of Remington 30-30 and 3 100 rnd boxes of CCI Minimag 22LR and I have to say its a lot like finding a 20 in a coat you have not worn since last winter except so much better.
Anyone ever find anything cool like that.

Winter before last, cleaning off my workbench- went to move bag- HEAVY. What the heck? Oh- 4 bricks of 22 target ammo. Oh yeah! Remember the sale!

Hmmm- maybe I can put it in that box. (Opens Box) Nope- THAT is a case of 9mm Remington I caught on sale for 4.98 a box. Forgot where I had put it.

I have GOT to clean off the workbench more often.

When I was stationed on Okinawa one night I was broke and reading a book in the barracks. I turn a page and there was 4 crisp $20.00 dollar bills. Evidently I had come back one night blitzed and stashed some money and forgot about it.

That was a real nice feeling with the exception of knowing I had an obvious black out at some point.

My grandmother raised me all of my life and when she passed in 2007 it was devestating for me. I was already living in the house and i could not make myself go through her stuff to move it out. After about 5 months me and my wife were going through a box of misc papers and cards "birthday,chrstmas,etc" i opened up an evelope and inside was $600

I was going through my moms house to get my belongings a few months ago and came across some on my dads things from when he passed away. Found a gun case and asked my mom if i could have it. Opened it up and found a Gew 1888. I remember seeing this rifle about 15 years ago amd my dad saying it was my grandfathers. Getting ready to take it apart and clean it up and hopfully shoot it. Ive been trying to do some research and figure where it was made and all the specs on it. I will post pictures as soon as my phone stops being retarted.
