    the title says it all, what is the best thing you have found in the course of mowing a lawn or account? also what is the best tip you have ever received from a customer. My best was a older gentleman gave me his car after he could no longer drive it. He is still my customer after 13 years. :usflag:

    $5 at a codo complex. Other than that I would have to say the dead rotting skunk that I sent through the ultra vac.
    $50 at the mall once, and $10 at the home depot.

    I was cutting a customers rental property. Renters had moved out. Found an Itialian rifle from WW2. Took it home, took it apart cleaned it. Still have it.

    2nd, did not actually find it, but rode past. Riding through a community look over and seen a woman lying next to the woods in the fetal posistion. came back a few hours later the cops and coroner had the area taped off. Seen on the news that night the lady had been shot in the head 3x.
