We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Checkbook? Credit cards? Expired membership cards? Business cards? Town beach pass? Dry cleaning slips? Tax receipts? An old condom? Concealed carry permit? To-do list? Money???
I'll go first:
$143, 7 of my business cards, two credit cards, my ATM card, my Triple A card, my carry permit, my medical insurance card, driver's license, supermarket bonus card, Costco Card, a mini-copy of my latest EKG showing my harmless PVCs, a list of phone numbers which aren't entered onto my cell, a small photo of my kids, and my hunting license. Pretty boring, really.
What's in your wallet?
Tell us in the comments.

Usual stuff really.
Driver's license, Health Insurance Card, AAA card, Amex card, two ATM/debit cards, discount cards for three grocery stores, none of which I shop at anymore, one or two stray receipts, about $1.50 in change and about $40 in bills, which is more than I usually have.

Sec. card, old military id, credit cards, photos of my kids, and................................................... a one-peso note issued by the Japanese occupation government in the Philippines. My dad took it off a guy who, uh, didn't need it anymore.
Three credit cards (2 business, 1 personal), 3 receipts, insurance card, drivers license, carry permit, security access card, and far too little money.
I checked my pocket after seeing that photo. I thought maybe you had stolen my wallet.
$1.24, Driver's license, Health insurance card, 8 supermarket or drugstore discount cards, 2 credit cards, debit card, about 16 receipts, library card, botanical garden membership, zoo membership, guest cards for botanic garden, assorted expired Dunkin Donuts and MacDonalds coupons for delicious coffee drinks I never had time to redeem, movie ticket stubs, metro stubs from Montreal, Compact flash card, platinum earring back (to try to match at jeweller's), eight stamps peeling off the backing and probably unusable by now (need one cent added anyway)

Actually, most of our guys have cc, where and when legal, of course.
But can you kill a bad dude with a cc card?
