I don't think anybody should keep what dos not belong to them. Dh and I believe you should always help someone in any way you can. I believe because of that our lives are richer in many ways.

I left my purse in a Walmart shopping cart just after cashing my pay check, It took me an hour to realize where I left it, I returned to the walmart thinking for sure if it got turned in the money would be gone. To my suprise some very nice woman turned it in with nothing touched. The commical thing was that the Walmart manager asked for ID when I saw the purse and said it was mine. I looked at her and laughed and she must have realized that all my ID was in my purse, she then asked if I could tell her what was in the outside pocket. I was very lucky that day.
Way to be honest pacanis!!!

Growing up in southern California, I always lock my doors. Like I always told my kids at school (when the subject came up), you could lay all your money out on your front lawn as far as I'm concerned. But, as I told them, I wouldn't recommend it! Too many people give in to temptation.

Hey, I may have passed that Walmart when I went out for a bike ride last week.
I took 394 to the new bike shop in Jamestown. Very scenic ride. No traffic til I got into town.
And are you kidding me?! A combination Taco Bell/KFC in the same building!
How cool is that?!

Very cool!....a fellow cyclist.

Actually, here in CA, Taco Bell & KFC can be found together under the same roof in many locations. I think a parent company owns them both, including a pizza chain as well.

Yep, Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, and possibly another (A&W?) are owned by the same people. You can find various combinations in many places.

Well it was a first for me.
It just goes to show you how slow my own town and the city to the west is. I take a 60 minute putt into NY and I run into this fine establishment in a town much smaller than Erie.
I would have stopped except I wouldn't have known what to order
