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 #1,059 - Maintenance Mode

Here is an email from Merril, one of the Australian Penny Finders:

I found a $2 coin in an ant hill opposite the church so I ran back inside and put it in the plate as a donation. That’s $2.20 I’ve found this year! – excluding the American coins.

So when is the last time YOU found a $2 coin in an anthill? LOL

This morning Doc wanted to go out for breakfast. (He entices me to go out with him by saying we will do a planning session). Doc found three pennies as we walked into the restaurant and I found one in the parking lot. (Coins #1-4).

Our next stop was Home Depot. Three pennies and a nickel there. (Coins #5-8).

This afternoon we changed out an old light fixture, cleaned the garage, tightened up a droopy yard gate, sorted 2” of Doc’s mail pile (4-5 months of stuff), did the laundry, etc.

This evening we added a fourth stop to our typical weekly shopping tour. Two pennies at WalMart, two pennies at grocery store #1, two dimes at grocery store #3. (Coins #9-14)

Total: 14 Coins P (11), N (1), D (2), Q (0) = $0.36

Foreign people in foreign countries finding foreign coins doesn't mean you get to label it.
