In March 2008 I began Finding Pennies. In December 2008 I began sharing these "Penny Tales" with a few close friends. They encouraged me to blog the Penny Tales such that more people could enjoy the Adventures with Penny Angels.

Day #987 - Magical

Another full day at “the office”.

Doc stopped for coffee on the way to the jobsite. He found a nickel which was propped vertically against a column, then a penny inside the coffee shop. (Coins #1&2)


By the time we arrived at the jobsite, the lower level of the house had stucco wrap on it. By this afternoon, the entire house was papered and the stucco crew had begun placing the wire mesh.

The framing crew was adding knee braces, putting in the garage ladders and revising doorways. Doc gently pointed out that the doors would not be able to open once ¾” flooring is installed.

The electrician continued his rough-in refinements.


On the way home from the jobsite, we stopped for lunch where I found a dime. (Coin #3). Then, when driving away, Doc found a median penny. (Coin #4)

This evening we headed back to the jobsite. Special friends came to tour the Penny Palace. They were the first guests to knock on the newly-installed front door. John was asking about everything from the additional hosebib to the leaded windows -- the various features he has been reading about in Penny Tales. Son, Kevin, was enthralled with the idea of a dungeon under the house. He was creating all sorts of scenarios for dragons and elves and secret passages and piles of treasures.

The Penny Palace is a magical place which hopefully will enliven all visitors.

Total: 4 Coins P (2), N (1), D (1), Q (0) = $0.17
