Again?

Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.  My writing prompt today:

~Look into your archives. What were you blogging about a year ago around this time?  Are you still dealing with the same thing? Your thoughts?

O.K.  This is so weird.  A year ago, April 25th, I was walking to the check-out line of my neighborhood grocery store when I looked down and saw a one-hundred-dollar bill.  There it was, nicely folded in half, in between the checker and the gum display.  I picked it up and handed it to the checker saying "I know this didn't come out of my wallet".  It was placed in the Lost and Found.  

Of course I could use that money.  But, it wasn't mine.  I just couldn't pocket it, my guilt would take away any inkling of joy this money could provide.

So here we are, a year later, and I'm walking to my car after a stop at my neighborhood Walgreen's.  The sun is shining, it's a beautiful afternoon and then, what's this?  I spot a pretty wallet laying on the ground behind my van.  When I picked it up I noticed it was pretty full.  (I rarely carry cash.  Who are these people carrying all this cash around?!  Who ever you are, look me up, I'll definitely go out to lunch with you.)
I delivered the wallet to the store manager.

Two years in a row, in the same week, I've found a nice amount of cash.  How bizarre.  What's the strangest thing you've ever found?

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
