|One Gallon Milk Jug Appears to be Approximately 70% Full of a Mixture of Pennies, Nickels, Dimes and Quarters|
Eight years ago, when Cindy and I moved to north Texas, we began collecting our spare change in an old 1-gallon milk bottle. At the end of each day, we would put whatever coinage we had in our pockets into the milk jug for safekeeping.
Well, as the days, weeks and years went by, we saw our milk bottle begin to fill up with pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters.
As moving day approaches, yesterday was the day that we "cashed in" our coins at the bank. I emptied the contents of the bottle into the automatic change counter, and presto!----we were given a check for the amount of money in the jug.
My friends---here is the challenge: guess the amount of money in the bottle. The person who comes closest to the actual amount will win a Starbucks $10 gift certificate from me. If the winner lives in a country where there are no Starbucks, I will award him/her a $10 U.S. bill. One guess per person. Entries must be received by 12:00 Noon on April 21, 2011. Guesses must be made here on Blogger---not on Facebook or Twitter. Let the guessing begin!
