$$$

Teddy has an uncanny talent for finding money. She enjoys taking long walks and usually takes walks of from three to six miles every day. She often walks round trip from the park to the Wal-Mart plaza which is about three miles south of us or about two miles north to Home Depot. Without fail she always comes back with money that she has found along the way. It is usually small change but twice she has come back with folding money. Once it was a twenty dollar bill and the other time it was a ten. She has been keeping track of her finds on her computer and so far this year she has found $57.21. She also sometimes comes back with various new items (towels, clothes etc.) which have apparently flown out of the back of pickups after they leave Wal-Mart.
Her secret...keep your eyes open and your head down!

Where are you? New Jersey? Things just "fell off the back of the truck," indeed. Your wife is Teddy Soprano and I'm scared of her.
