Congrats to Jackie,  Mum of Angels Eric and Flynn as of 10 pm last night.  Her guess was 

$.29 cents shy of the correct total!!



November Reader's Digest and I happened upon this article,

  4. YAY Miss Jackie! We were behind so didn't see yesterday's blog about guessing - we would have been way off though. Mom thought maybe $35.00. It pays (!!) to be observant while parking lot cruising!

    Hugs, Teddy

  5. We have not found a penny while walking. Maybe we aren't looking down. Or need to find a new place to walk. We have seen an alligator to two!
