Finders keepers

June 9, 2021

We’ve all heard different interpretations of what finding money on the ground means: it’s the universe sending us a message that things are moving in our favor, it’s a loved one who has died sending us a message that we’re loved and watched over, it’s someone who has a hole in his pocket sending us a message to get to a tailor ASAP.

And adding to the interpretations is the whole heads up or heads down question, and what date the coin was found on question.

To me finding money on the ground means good luck because, hey, it’s money, right?

Because I wanted to keep all my good luck I decided not to spend it, but to put all of that found money into a jar and turn that jar into a ‘Good Luck Jar’.

And then there was the day I found a quarter on the ground and when I bent over to pick it up I threw my back out and couldn’t stand up straight and without pain for a week.

That was the last time I looked for good luck in found money.

    fun… a Six that reads like lyrics to a mid-20th century song.
    (well done on the musical accompaniment… properly done, it always enhances the Reader’s enjoyment)

    As a serial coin-picker-upper myself, I can relate to this, especially as recovering from the bent position gets more difficult with age! As we say here, look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves!

    My Six!

    Thoughtful Six. It reminded me in the end of the expression ‘A bad penny always turns up’.

    Throwing out one’s back would be bad luck.

    Oh, no! Hope your back is feeling better!
    No matter how often I look, I’ve never been lucky at finding money on the ground. Unlike 1 of my brothers who found a $100 bill once 😀
    P.S. Enjoyed the music.

    Oh dear! I wasn’t expecting that. I was going to say, ‘Good twist,’ but then I thought of your poor back and decided not to say it. I really like this.
