Someone must have crossed that tree with a rabbit. I wish we lived closer together so you could leave a bag of flaming...red apples on my porch. Or I could drive over. Not gonna happen.


After fighting with an oncoming cold for a few days, the cold won. After drinking mulled apple cider all day, I'm finishing off the last cup with a generous pour of rum. Yum.

I have two friends "up" the valley and one "down" who all have apple orchards. I have enough apples to start my own market.

It's 10pm and I'm listening to a totally incomprehensible programme on the radio about maths and nursing a hot water bottle. I am absolutely frozen hence the hot water bottle. I refuse to turn on the central heating before October when it's perfectly warm outside. I blame double glazed windows and insulation. In the summer when the outdoor temp was in the 70s, I had to wear a thick woolly sweater in the house!

My old house was in a Victorian terrace. It was lovely and warm and cost peanuts to heat.

And you left that lovely Victorian home because?

Question

Today I found a folded £5 note on the floor of a supermarket. There was no-one nearby, i.e. that might have lost it. I picked it up and partly considered handing it in but didn't trust staff to be honest, i.e. not to pocket it so I kept it. Do you think this belief was accurate or cynical?

What would you have done?

If I came across it and it looked hopelessly lost to me I would have picked it up and kept it.

If I thought I could reunite it with it's rightful owner I would do that.

If I was having qualms about it then I would toss it into a donation kettle for some worthwhile cause.

If I was not having qualms about it I would treat it as a sign from above and spend it on some small treat.

For me the answer is never the same, I just muddle along doing what feels right at the time!

Thumbs up

Aunt Bea - I like your attitude! Balanced and adaptable. You seem to apply intuition too (which I also do).

Kept it! I once was in the bank and the woman in front of me dropped a $100.00 bill. I did tap her on the shoulder and gave it back to her. She couldn't thank me enough. She was putting it into her checking account to cover the check she wrote for groceries for the kids she had at her side.

Another time I found a $10.00 bill on the sidewalk. I kept it. No one around, why not. I found it just before Christmas and was pregnant with my 4th child. It went toward Christmas dinner.
