    LOL!

    My girls always leave earrings in their pockets.

    My fave find is MONEY! The rule here is that the washerwoman keeps whatever she finds that is GREEN PAPER!

    As far as weird stuff, it's hard to say. Never had a balloon though!

    Found out where the balloon came from. Mark went to a banquet the other day for the Caverns and someone told him to keep it forever. Hmm another story there & I bet and knowing Mark, I'll never hear about it.

    I keep money in my tips jar.

    A credit card was in my dryer the other day. I was glad DH didn't see that- he hates it when I carry them in my pockets!

    I used to work in a laundrymat my senior year of HS. I can tell you maxi pads do not wash and dry too well. And I still havn't figured out why a grown man would carry a pair of woman's undies in his pocket. Oh yeah, it was a drycleaners too, so the things I found in pockets are a whole other topic itself.

    But for at home, rocks in my DS's pockets definitely top the list.
