Couch Jackpot

A teenager found a wallet containing $650 stuffed inside couch cushions while looking for his cell phone. Jack Wagster, 16, was visiting friend Nick Gorman’s house when he found the billfold. They live in Snohomish, Wash. The couch had been purchased from a couple in Kirkland, Wash.

Jack and Nick used Facebook to track down the wallet’s owner, Alanna Jensen. They found her now living in Arizona. Alanna said she had lost the wallet at a party in 2005. She was “excited and grateful” when the boys returned it. For their honesty and effort, she rewarded them $25 each.

    Burger, that’s a saying for 4 year olds. A scout is honest.
    Think about it. Are you a four year old, or a scout.
