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.
Another day of being at the Penny
Palace at 7 a.m. We were expecting
the Gas Company installer any time between 7 - noon.
Final Driveway Fencing
Iron Jimmy and Jonathan arrived to
install the remainder of the driveway fencing. Gosh it looks great!
We also reviewed the designs for the next project - the dog yard
fencing. As I was making payment I
asked Jimmy for the invoice on that Wagon Wheel Axle. Doc just loves spinning his wheel! Jimmy said it was his gift to the Penny Palace. The team working on this project is
awesome. We are very blessed.
Window Brian continued window
cleaning. Using his 28 ft. ladder
he also agreed to clean the ceiling fans, wipe down the fireplace stone, and
clean the trusses. We were told we
would need to get a lift in the Grand Room to switch out the light bulbs when
they needed changing in the future.
So today we had Brian put in LEDs which are supposed to last 15
years. One of the eight recessed
lights kept tripping the circuit breaker, so an urgent call was made to the
electrician. New issue to
resolve. I will meet him tomorrow
at 7:30 a.m.
Gas Man Mike
The Gas Company rep checked all the
gas features in the house for good connections. Then he installed the gas
meter. We Now Have Gas! (and thus hot water).
Don & Jeanne w/Jimmy's Axle
This morning our good friends Don
and Jeanne visited. Don was Best
Man at our wedding and Jeanne took our wedding photos (30 years ago). They have since moved to Sacramento so
we were delighted to see them again.
The vinyl lettering which looked so
great when I installed it last week, has started to curl and some of the
letters are nearly falling off.
Another issue to resolve.
This afternoon. HVAC Steve
connected the two gas furnaces.
Yipee! We have heating.
Doc and I shut down the Penny
Palace at 4 p.m. We stopped at the
key and lock kiosk to get one wayward lock keyed to match all the others. The locksmith said he could not do it. Another new issue to resolve.
Our next stop was the storage unit
to prove to Doc that I emptied it yesterday (and to close out our account).
Finding? Oh Yeah. Early afternoon I made a quick trip to
the lighting store to get those LED lamps. I was going to take window Brian up on his offer to change
those while he had his ladder in the Grand Room. I made a quick stop at a 7-11 store for a banana (and to
look for coins). I spotted a
penny. Reached for it and saw a
quarter, then a penny, then a dime, then a penny. (Coins #1-5)
