    Child Finds $1,300 in Thrift Store Book

    MCDONOUGH, Ga. - Rhiannon Barnes may be the luckiest 15-month-old ever. Or maybe her baby sitter is the fortunate one. While playing with a thrift store book bought earlier in the day for 25 cents, Rhiannon uncovered $1,300 in cash stuck between the pages. Her baby sitter Sheila Laughridge said she only bought the book at Rhiannon's insistence and was surprised when the toddler found a brown paper bag full of $100s, $50s, $20s and $10s.

    Laughridge took the money, which dated as far back as the 1960s, to a local bank, where she received only $300 in exchange because most of the bills were in pieces. The rest of the tattered money was sent to the U.S. treasury department.

    Rhiannon's mother, Shirley Barnes, joked that she's considering using her daughter's new found talent more.

    "What I want to do is put pieces of paper with number on them out on the table and have her pick them so that maybe we can win the lottery," she said.

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

    Pretty sure I can find the Holy Grail or the Shroud of Turin @ Bargain Bob's.

    I saw the original 10 Commandments at a Big Lots once, but I'd forgotten my wallet at home.
