    I have a big plastic jug that was full of pretzels. I'm assuming it is a 3 gallon jug. I cleaned it out & am putting all the change I see in it. This is called "Bryans Flathead Fund", my wife thinks all my fishing gears is comming from this! Granted I am thinking I could have as much as $200 in itby the time spring rolls around, so my plan is to buy more terminal tackle, a rod/reel, down pmt on a jon boat, etc...

    I started this a couple weeks ago. I have a pretty good start. I've been searching the couch cushions, under the bed, in the jeeps & espically pockets of recently worn jeans. Just today I was searching in my wifes purse, I found a quarter, dimes, pennies & the mother of all coins..... one of those Indian Woman $1 coins! Thats like landing a 40# flathead! :p

    H2O, I do the same, I put all my change and what my wife gives into a plastic container. when I was able to work,I for the school system, in the gym, I would find alot of change on the floor in the locker room after a ball game, all of this would go in my jar. when I cashed it in close to $100.00 in there.

    If you are gonna fill that jug by spring you better hurry..I did the same thing, I limited my change to quaters an dimes, no pennys, takes to long to count them.

    LMAO!!!! I've got one of those jars, and since the first of September I've managed to collect $60 in all forms of change(I keep a running total). I was thinking an Abu 7000, or bigger when I'm done. Unless of course she gets to it first....

    As everyone can see..... Mrs Flathunter has the reins tightl on MR Flathunter. I have laid the law down here in Mellonland. No one is to touch the Flathead fund. In doing so, sever action will take place, leading up terminiation from the Mellonhouse hold! :D

    Now that's funny. Go for the joint, it's easier to cut, and less chance of leaving saw marks on the bones.....
