Day #1,227 - Quick Visit
Doc wanted to go out for breakfast before he would cooperate and work on our list of Action Items for today. So we had a quick meal at a local café. On the way home, Doc stopped at a Circle K store so I could look for coins. We got three pennies there (Coins #1-3).
We packed up a van-load of stuff and headed for the Penny Palace. Stopped at Home Depot for shelving hardware, a light fixture, paint, other supplies, and one dime. (Coin #4)
We arrived at the Penny Palace around 12:30 and spent a hurried hour unloading things, putting shelves in the lawn shed and taking solar readings.
On the way home Doc stopped for a coffee, but I questioned his ‘cents ablity’ since it was such a hot day. So he bought an Icee instead. I collected a penny. (Coin #5)
The glass dome of ceiling light we bought this morning was shattered, so we returned to Home Depot to exchange it. Doc collected a median find penny as we exited the freeway. (Coin #6).
There was one penny at the drive through diner when we got lunch. (Coin #7)
This afternoon we took the doggies to get their nails trimmed. A dime there. (Coin #8). Then Doc took the van to the car wash. One penny there. (Coin #9)
This evening I spent 2 hours sorting, cleaning and packing things for the Penny Palace. I begged Doc to work with me for 15 minutes on some of his stuff. I now have a load to take to the jobsite tomorrow.
Rats! I left my cameras out in the lawn shed.
I spent several hours this evening paying bills. That is the largest stack I have seen. Tonight I began filling out “Change of Address” forms on the bills. New Experience! Doc bought this house just before we got married and we have been here for 30 years!
Total: 9 Coins P (7), N (0), D (2), Q (0) = $0.27
