Where have you been, George?

Here is a very fun game you can play with moneys! It is called Where's George. You enter the serial number from your dollars, and you can see where it has traveled!Here is an example of a report from a dollar my Daddie entered in 2002! (click to biggify). Somebody all the way in Escondido, California entered the bill and wrote this about the George:
on my way to get a burrieto at albertos. I usually get a mixed but sometimes a chorizo. I haven't made up my mind yet. :)
I hope that person enjoyed their burrito. They might need to take some spelling lessons, too. Anyway, on November 17, 2002 my Mommie and Daddie found that dollar all the way in south Florida in a Geocache. Geocaching is another fun game that I will tell you about some day.

This George traveled 2,286 miles! Here is a map of the dollar's travels.
So, when you see a dollar, you might wonder where the George has been. Or you could play Where's George! and find out!

84 Notes for Daisy:

Poppy Q said...

Sounds like an interesting game. Maybe you should hold onto all of your beans money, so you can check on it for them.

Have a nice day miss Daisy.

The Whiskers & Purrs Gang said...

Dearest Miss Daisy,
Wow...that sounds like a fun game! Mommy asks all the time where her Georges go...she says they just seem to disappear all the time. Maybe we could check it out for her. Thanks for passin' this along, Daisy! You is the bestest!

Very truly yours,
The Whiskers & Purrs Gang

The Meezers said...

Adan*Michico said...

Oah Daisy,

Thanks for telling me this interesting game!!! Although I might not able to play U.S. dollars, but I can understand that rules, and I think it will be very funny~~

Michico says she will share this funny post with her friends and Pamilla, I think it will have great conversation between them!

Purr,
Adan

Dragonheart & Merlin said...

Wow, Daisy, that sounds like a very cool game! We only have Canadian dollars and Euro though, not US dollars, so we can't play.

Parker said...

We play that game too! It is a lot of fun. Maybe we will have the same George someday!

Isis said...

Ooh that's cool Daisy! I think I'm better at playing where was queenie? Oh yes Mummy spent queenie on more stuff for Me! :) *giggles*

topcatrules said...

That sure sounds like a fun game.

Daisy, you should have heard 30 students reading aloud this afternoon from your latest comic.

What fun!

Alasandra said...

That sounds like a neat game Daisy. We are going to play when the youngest boy bean wakes up, so he can play too. ~Scylla, Charybdis & Socks

Gandalf & Grayson said...

George sounds very interesting Daisy. Mom hardly ever uses George, though. She has a piece of plastic that never seems to go anywhere. She says it's her poofer. We hope she never loses her poofer!

Cecil the Cougar: said...

I has never played that, but my Mommie has heard of George. She wishes she had more George's, I wishes I had more Temptations!

D.R. said...

That is really funny. You know a lot about geography.

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

The George game sounds like fun. Mom said that she will check out the site and let us play too.

Mickey said...

Daisy,that sounds fascinating! I never gave much thought as to where the money travels to, as long as I get my Temptations :)
Neato game!

Oh I think the Almost Dad has played that game a few times. Wow.

He is very interested in geocaching so we will look forward to that post.

FUNNY CAT PICTURES said...

We thinks George and his brothers (George, George, etc.) are busy guys and that you, Miss Daisy, are always so picture purrfect!

-d ma said...

I've enjoyed the where is george activity. It's amazing how far some bills travel. i'm supposed to do a geocaching exercise this spring for work. i know nothing about what that is...

The Cats Stephens said...

Daisy,

We just wanted to thank you for the message you sent out to the pink ladies about Percy. He seemed to perk up right away with all the purrs being sent his way. It made my mom all leaky to see how much people care about her boy. Thank you for your kindness and your purrs.

Purrs,
The Cats Stephens Clan

Sometimes parents will say "Don't put that in your mouth, you don't know where it's been" but now you do! My Dad plays with Where's George some too, but usually doesn't have much cash... but he has done Geocaching (the other kind of cache) and really enjoys that. His favorites are the travel bugs. He helped take a travel bug all the way to Fiji once, and it is still traveling the world! Good way to have to take a walk...
--Jasper

Kellie The Orange Cat said...

That looks like a very fun game! I guess in Canada we could play Where have you been, Loonie? Ha, ha, ha.....that sounds so funny - but then having a dollar coin called a Loonie and a $2 dollar coin called a Toonie is funny too, but that's what we have!

Dark n Stormy said...

We played "Where's George" a few times several years ago. Unfortunately, our bills often end up in boring places and then disappear.

Those a cute pics of you with the money, though :)

The Furry Fighter said...

That sounds like a fun thing to do. Wonder if there's a UK equivalent.

Copito said...

Wow that is so great Daisy, very interesting!

I know where is the burrito hehehe

='·'=

TT said...

Mommy Bean dids this with money she haded when she wents to England. (She thinks the site that does the American money one does the UK version too.) It was neat to see where it went there after she used it.

Hot(M)BC said...

I know where George is! He's somewhere other than our house! hehehe

Tesla said...

Kodak, Winton and 3 Perf

SophieKitty said...

That's cool! I'm going to ask my mommie for dollars so I can track them.

meemsnyc said...

We love it when we see George Game on a dollar. We've seen it before and it's pretty cool. We've never seen one travel across the country like you did, that is pretty neat.

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

I wish I could have an allowance then I could play the game too! Mommy spends all the green papers for Paul Newman's cat food!

Camie's Kitties said...

Mom says we will go and sign up today - it looks like fun. Walways wonder where our George's go.

Tiki, Tavi, Cody and Camie

S E E Quine said...

` You're so good at writing, Daisy! I'll have to come back. (After I get the internet in my new apartment.)

Cat Naps in Italy said...

That lookes like a fun game but we cannot play it because we have euros not dollars. We will have to see who is on the euro, I know it isn't George.

Beethoven said...

Wow! That's a fun game! I didn't know those little green notes can be so much fun!

4 Boys and a Lady said...

Daisy, you never cease to make us laugh and smile. You are truly a smart kitty!

Thanks for coming by and wishing Virgil well. He's better and is now back home. :)

Girl Girl Hamster said...

I never knew that there is such a tracking site on the greenback. Thanks for sharing Daisy. I shall check if they have this in our local currency. This should be fun :)

Cats~Goats~Quotes said...

Mom has played this game!
It is fun to see where George goes.

travel agent becomes business said...

Awesome! As a home based travel agent working in the travel business field, I thought this was great!

self help improvement said...

It's interesting how pets can travel long distances and find their way back home. Maybe they hire travel agents for help..LOL

S E E Quine said...

` Garr! My cat Vada is biting the spammer!

Kathy said...

Daisy! I got her from picking a random Daisy post. You remember I do that a lot, don't you?

Anyway, I used to do the Where's George thing a lot. I even bought a stamp that you could mark on the bill so that people would go to the site and see where my George had been.

It was lots of fun, but also lots of work, because sometimes I had a lot of moneys to stamp.
