[at-l] Money talks

So....on my way to work this morning...I see a couple pieces 
of paper blowing/rolling down the highway. I look as I go by 
and think..."Hey, that looked like money". so, I turned 
around and went back. I pulled over and noticed another car 
pulled over farther up the highway. We were walking toward 
each other, each picking up money blowing around the road. I 
find a...wallet? purse? Satchel? ...I find a little 
zippered, cloth thing...in the middle of the road. The other 
guy found a license and gift card. I found an ID card of 
some sort.  So, I'm trying to figure out what this guy 
thinks our deal is. I am intending on tracking down the 
owner, of course. But, is he?  As we're stuffing money back 
in this zippered bag I notice a roll of 20s with a rubber 
band around it. My guess is there were 
several....several....hundred dollars in this thing. As well 
as credit cards, etc. Fortunately, I guess, this is 
happening right in front of a sheriff deputy's house. A 
sheriff deputy I happen to know pretty well. So, I suggest 
we go to the house...and, as it turns out, the other guy 
knew him, too! When we looked at the name on the license the 
other man said "My sons know that guy" so he called his son 
and the son called the guy. Since Sheriff Jerry was 
comfortable with the guy taking the wallet/money to 
(presumably) the owner, I was.  (And, the other guy didn't 
seem like the kind of guy who'd take off with someone's 
money. He even gave me a business card). The day got even 
weirder after that!
