It had to happen. After three consecutive months of increasingly finding more money, I only found 23 cents in October. I think a lot of that is due to the number of leaves that have fallen, which hide these already-hard-enough-to-find jewels. With two months remaining on my six-month ice cream cone quest, my total findings are $2.82. With a little luck I'll be able to get a large, chocolate-dipped DQ cone as a result.
