Rusty Milk Can


If you look closely, you'll see that where the handle meets the body of this can is the subject of yesterday's "What is it Wednesday?" photo.

My husband grew up in rural Ohio, and his brother is still a dairy farmer up there.  They tell me that many Amish used to put their money in milk cans and bury them for safekeeping.

Where do you hide your money?

Please note:  I'm still on the Murray State campus working through the summer MFA residency.  Because of our long days, I can't comment on blogs.  I apologize but hope you'll understand.

Olá Chris!
Nunca mais te vi no Blogtrotter... ;((
Enjoying the fun at Murray?
Money was supposed to be hidden in banks, but it seems nowadays that's questionable whether it's safe... ;))
So you were a student in Saltillo? That's an awful memory for us here, after the disaster of the Portuguese national football team at the 1986 FIFA World Cup... ;))
Have a great weekend!

I would never have guessed a rusty milk can. And I hide my money in the bank! :)

Oh, of course! Duh to me. Lovely photos, both.

Neat! I would have never been able to come up with the answer. I don't have any money to hide right now, drat it.
