Dumpster Diving

My husband is a dumpster diver! And he drug Katie with him. Jimmy and Katie went to take off the trash this morning and they had a few other things to do. I was sitting at the kitchen table stitchin and I heard a car door. I knew it wasn't time for them to be back yet. Katie came running to the door and told me to come look.....



I couldn't believe it. They didn't actually have to dive for it because it was sitting out by the dumpster. One of the little drawers up top was in the dump but Jimmy said he grabbed it with a mop handle. The little drawer in the middle has a lock on it and it was locked. We thought maybe it had a treasure in it. Jimmy took a screw driver and opened it and all that was in it was a sleeve that you roll dimes in. It needs alot of work and I'm not sure what we'll do to it just yet but I'll let you know. Katie has already claimed it. I guess that's only fair since she was with Jimmy when they found it.

Hope you're having a great day!


Blessings,
