I'll bet not one of you can tell me what the significance the number 6860 has. But I know it by heart. I have written that four digit combination down so many times that I don't even have to look at the bin in the bulk food aisle anymore to make sure I got it right.

The number 6860 is the code used at my local supermarket for purchasing my favorite indulgence. The amount is always the same, one bag that contains six chocolate covered jelly rings, usually costing around $.56 cents. The bag is always kept on the top of the groceries for easy access on the short drive home. Often they are gone before I open the garage door.

I took the photo about ten minutes ago. Hands are starting to shake and mouth is watering..... Must go.....

$22.81 (includes a $20 bill in the gutter folded neatly just waiting to jump into my pocket plus a loony, a Canadian dollar. Guess we'll have to go back to Victoria to spend it! I love Sunday mornings!)

The key to finding paper money is to keep walking. I'm due. Just finished a great Sunday afternoon walk and found a buck fifty.

Congratulations on the $20.00/

We have those ben numbers as well. I like the chocolate covered malt balls. Took a whole bag to Europe vacation.

*me jealously salivating*

Matt is gone for 3 days and I could eat a whole bag of those in front of the TV any one of these nights.

I can't believe I can't find them up here.
