    Gotten a few SD cards. iPad that I dropped off at an Apple place. Pair of glasses a couple of years ago that I still use for racing. Got a brand new fancy iPhone (8 maybe?). Still in great condition, I was able to call the owner and they came and picked it up. Plenty of other things.

    Stopped for a quarter, but bypassed the licorice stick. It made me want a piece though.

    Go to Trader Joe's and get the brown bag of licorice. Imported from Australia or New Zealand. Can't remember which one. None better.

    I was stopped at a red light yesterday and found a quarter. I think it is in the washing machine now.

    This nice Stanley ratchet find was in the middle of the newish green bike lane, which is between the right turn only lane and the straightaway lane. The light turned red, giving me a chance to go back for it. Almost made up for the yellow Dewalt packaging I stopped for only to find it was an empty hand tool hang tag.

    ^^ Sweet. I stopped and picked up a very solid stainless steel grill grate last night. It was a little cumbersome on the bike but is probably a $25 grate. I'll add it to the camping collection.

    I have that set, it's a nice set. Good find.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Found a heavy duty (Irwin) utility knife last Thursday on the ride to work. I got a block from my office and a guy was panhandling with a sign that said "Anything Helps" so I took him literally.

    I have found the better part of a roll of gorilla tape before.

    I found a pair of wire strippers in good working order on Friday.

    Not a treasure, but I did spare someone a flat picking up a 3/8x6" lag bolt.

    I found a nice pair of Craftsman slip joint pliers with no road damage. NICE.
