You are never going to believe this, Part 2

Remember a few weeks ago when I told about my incredible luck (and skill) at the Master's Tennis Tournament? My luck continues.

Yesterday I was driving to my doctor's appointment and I noticed something flopping on the road. I took a closer look and noticed it was money. I immediately parked my car and ran over to the money and started picking it up. Low and behold, it was $100 bills! I'm not sure I had ever seen a $100 bill. Along with the money, which totalled $442, I found a wallet. As I sat in the waiting room at the doctor's office I called 411 and got the phone number for the gentleman's wallet I found.

He called me back later in the day and came over and picked up his wallet. I told him I picked up all the money I could find and hoped it was all of it because it seemed like a lot. He said he wasn't even concerned about the cash, but was concerned about the credit cards because he just had his identity stolen on the internet and the credit cards were brand new. He said he didn't even know his wallet was missing, that he must have had it on top of his car and it fell off when he was driving. He was so grateful for my honesty that he gave me $100 and then made a donation in my name to World Vision where Dave and I sponsor a child.

Isn't that a great story?

no.

just think how much more you could have given to world vision if you'd maxed out his credit cards?

You're not the only one who said I should have taken the money. He he!
