Missing Money and Mystery Milk

Happy Birthday, Tracie!!!
***************************************

A few months ago, a co-worker suggested that I go
here to see if someone, somewhere owed me money. I checked, and someone did!!

When I initially enlisted in the Army in '94, I lived in Denver and it seems that I had a bank account there that I had forgotten about once I moved to Germany. I emailed and requested the claim forms. I proved that I actually lived there (my military orders sending me there), had the claim form notorized and mailed it to them back to Colorado.

Well today, I received the check in the mail!! The letter that came with the check says:

I am glad we were able to assist you and hope you will help us find others so we can reunite them with their property too.
So, in doing my civic duty, I encourage you to go here and see if you 'lost' some money. I've also checked for some of my family, and they have a total of 17 accounts belonging to them. Don't worry, I don't charge a finder's fee.
************************************

This evening, P and I went to the German grocery store to get lotion. P spotted empty glass bottles on the shelf and wanted to buy them.

Me: What are you going to do with the bottles?
P: I'm going to give them to the cow man, and he will put cow pee-pee in them, and it will turn into milk.

Our neighbor owns dairy cattle, and on occasion, we watch when it is time to milk them and P plays with the calves. She seems to think that when the 'cow man' puts the milking machine on the cow's udders, the cow pees in the machine, and the collection jars miraculously turns the pee into milk.

So, Thursday evening we will be forced to investigate this 'miracle', because P swears she's right.
