The Penny Finding just won’t end! Today Doc stopped for a coffee at the local convenience store. I went in with him to look for coins (yes, this addiction is difficult to break). There were no coins to be found inside and I was disappointed.
As I walked out of the store, I remembered the “Word of the Day” from my yoga class. The word was “ASK”. Someone quoted the verse “You do not have, because you do not ask”. Soooo… once again I challenged the Penny Angels. “OK Angels, how about a coin before I get back in my truck?” I looked in a muddy planter bed. There were some pennies and nickels!! (Nickels are the rarest finds of the four basic coins). I bent over to retrieve the coins …. I kept gobbling them up! Doc called to see where I was, so I quickly returned to him. I thought perhaps I had as many as 25 coins (my favorite number). I unfolded my hand and we counted together … one, two, three… there were thirty-seven coins! Including Two Hits for the Cycle! (Defined as one penny, one nickel, one dime, and one quarter).
Note: I also challenged the Angels about “writing time”. Doc and I expected (and allowed time for) stop-and-go morning traffic on the freeway. I told the Angels if they wanted me to write a Penny Tale today, they would need to open up some time for me. I was able to drive the maximum speed limit on the freeway! Unheard of in morning traffic. Thus I had that extra time to write the Penny Tale for today!
Coin Count: 37 Coins 28 (P), 4 (N), 3 (D), 2 (Q) = $1.28
Two hits for the Cycle
