-£3.04 in change (two pound coins, a fifty, two twenties, a ten and two two pence coins)

-Right front trouser pocket: Two US quarters, two US dimes, one US penny, and a 1-dirham coin from the UAE.
-Right read trouser pocket: Wallet containing much crap and three US$1 bills.
-Jacket left chest pocket: Clean hanky
-Jacket right hip pocket: House keys, right glove
-Jacket left hip pocket: left glove
The 1-dirham coin is a mystery. I am not now in, and never have traveled to, the UAE. It’s about the size of a US quarter, so I probably got it in change from the grocery store down the street, which serves an extremely diverse clientele.
…and then The Boy wonders why his pants keep wearing through at the pockets. Duh.
Oh, and I have $0.28 CDN (change from my morning latte) and an unrecognizable wad of paper that has gone through the washer and dryer, which I assume was probably a shopping list in its past life. All the other kipple is in my ginormous purse… but I’d be writing all day if I needed to catalogue that.
Yes - whenever possible - blackberries, nuts, sea beet leaves, wild mushrooms (plastic bags aren’t ideal for this, but it’s generally OK for half an hour or so). The bags are also useful for collecting trinkets such as sea glass, shells and other interesting bits and bobs. I always have at least one bag ready in my wallet.
Cool! I checked out your site (and the link back to the thread about “my food has many eyes”!). So you chose your name for your philosophy, rather than the peas… Not counting my failed vegetable garden, I’ve got blackberries, apples, strawberries and mushrooms growing around my house. Never tried any of the mushrooms, as I don’t know enough about them to chance it. And for odd bits, lately I’ve brought home a possum skull, a single deer vertebra, and a pair of deer antlers.
Oh, and to add (on-topic) my coat pockets: on the left, my bottle of nitroglycerin; on the right, a stick of Blistex lip balm.
