She really cast a spell on you and your pockets:)) Bet those left behind scrambled to clean up the floor after you left.

Well, maybe next time you pick up change, you will donate it to a good cause. Great story!

That's an amazing painting. It must have been pretty awesome to see it up close...even if you lost a small jackpot!! Great story.

After three centuries the poor dear needed a laugh, even if at your expense. Ah, but what a story it makes!

Great story. You needed bigger, stronger pockets. I love your analysis of a painting...I miss so much on my own.

Crime doesn't pay, the princess don't play!

No way! Surprising that it had gone so long undiscovered but, oh how mortifying even though there is no shame in found money and you did end up 'donating' it to the museum. More curious is what the other people in the room thought when all of a sudden your pants rained coins and you fled making no effort to retrieve the money.

Karma strikes again!!

You see things in pictures that I never would notice, so I'm glad I get to see so many pictures through your eyes. LOL at the coins busting out of your pants!

Oh that did not end well. I would have done the same thing but i would be lucky to have a purse. Guilt would never even enter my mind because it was there for the taking-sounds horrible but it wasn't a bank. You are so lucky to have seen this great picture for real. I love art and have yet to visit the Prado

That's a fun story. I'm sad when it comes to my knowledge of fine art. But I'm humbled in its presence.

Un fait accompli... as it was meant to be.
