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.

When we arrived at the Penny
Palace, I think it took more time to assemble the furniture than to bring it in

at 9 p.m., that room was cleared.One more room down, only 4-5 zones remaining.
