A woman sold some old items to a junkman, and said she didn't want any of the items in an old hope chest. A few days later he called her and said he'd found something she would want, and he went over and handed her an envelope.It it were some Series E Savings bonds valued at $114,000.http://www.wcvb.com/news/local/boston-north/Junkyard-owner-s...Yeah, I think he's right. She would want that.Now, the guy is pitching a reality show about the trash business, and I'm cynical enough to believe that he saw more profit in returning the bonds and getting his name in the news, than by keeping the money, but it was still a decent, honest thing for him to do.Found money. A lot of fun can be had with over a hundred thousand. Even when the taxes are taken out it's still a lot of money.I hope A&E takes a good look at his show.Nancy
