Out of the Wash

This morning I walked into the family room to find this.

A pile of freshly washed cash. It worked. The money smells just fine. Guess it'll take me a bit of time to sort, straighten, and stack but at least it doesn't stink.

Now I must excuse myself. The yard awaits and I have a few irrigation sprinklers to either repair or replace and my gutters need attention. Truthfully, I'd rather just kick back and read all day, but you and I both know that isn't possible.

Later, and hey, be careful out there.

  1. I'm glad the wash worked, and can only imagine how bad the odor must have been (after reading your previous post).

    We had several chores planned for today, but it's raining & 47 here, so those activities get put on hold. Time for more coffee, though.

    Carry on, sir, and grab those quiet moments when they present themselves.

    1. Just a few weeks shy of vacation. I plan to relax and read and eat and read and eat and sleep and, well, you get it.

    1. Me too...sincerely, that cash would have gagged a maggot.

  3. I had no doubt it would work. Just think how often people accidentally wash bills in their pockets.

  5. If you've been diving for the lost cash in port-a-cans, I don't want to know.

  6. I tended bar during my college days. My tip money always stank. It never occurred to me to launder it, though. I just made it a habit to get it to the bank asap. Occasionally I miss bartending, because it was pretty fun and paid well, but I don't miss coming home smelling like an ashtray.

    1. I was pleasantly surprised how nice the bills looked, smelled and felt when removed from the dryer.

      I wouldn't last ten minutes in a smoke filled bar...I'd take my drink outside. Thanks, Kris.
