My Gracie once bought a box of old used greeting cards at a rummage sale. I thought it was a waste of fifty cents, but in one of the old cards she found twenty bucks. A profitable day — now, take that times ninety gajillion, and you have what happened in Houston.
A Texas scrap collector hauled off a locked mystery safe. Nobody knew what was inside, but he promised to return the contents to the previous owner if anything valuable turned up.
Well, what turned up was over two million dollars in gold coins. What is it about plumbing pipes that encourages people to store coins in it? Anyhow, the happy ending is that the original owner of the coins got their safe back, and the scrapper got a heavy-ass safe. Everybody wins!
