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 #1,074 - Gutters

Began the morning by submitting offers on two of the houses we visited yesterday. We will see what happens on those.


I arrived at the Penny Palace shortly before 9 a.m. The concrete crew was hard at work in grading the driveway area and leveling out other areas. The gutter crew assembled and installed the aluminum rain gutters. Those look quite nice. The crew will return in a few weeks to install the downspouts after concrete work is completed.

At 9 a.m. I met with Tile George. He is anxious to get started, so we quickly drove to Home Depot to buy 25 bags of Thin Set and 57 sheets of Hardibacker. Delivery expected at 9:16 tomorrow morning.

At 3 p.m. I met with the vinyl installer to take final measurements for the kitchen flooring. We are planning to install that next week.

Around 3:30 Maribel (whom I met on Day #1049) dropped in to say thanks and provide an update on her house foreclosure status.

The boxes of solar panels were in the garage on Saturday when everyone was there for the Birthday Tour. The panels were gone this morning, so either those were stolen, or they were installed on Sunday (yesterday).

Numerous phone calls, emails and other things. No time to chat tonight.


I was driving home and remembered Penny Finding. Stopped at a 7-11 store for a banana, 3 pennies, 2 nickels, and a dime.

Doc acquired one penny at McDonalds early in the day, then a second penny at the grocery store on his way home.

Total: 8 Coins P (5), N (2), D (1), Q (0) = $0.25 favorite number again
