    .....but unfortunately, was tucked in a sleeve which I mowed over, along with the bill. Spend 20 minutes picking up the pieces - hope to put Humpty Dumpty back together again!

    Just when I thought this drought was going to kill biz for Sept, a little luck comes along:)

    Send the pieces to the Treasury dept they will give you a new if you have 51% of the pieces.

    What if I cut up 3 hundred dollar bills 3 times, that would give me 4 sets of 51 percebt or greater.

    Hahaha. I'm pretty sure they take down the serial number of the bill.

    My helper brought me a 100 dollar bill last week and asked me what my policy was about finding money while on the job. I was shocked by his honesty. I told him my policy was to put it in your pocket. Found on a busy right of way, good for him. A $20 is the most I ever found.
