It has once again been more than 300 consecutive days of Penny Finding and I think the Angels wanted to do something extra cute today.
Doc and I headed out to do some errands. We parked the van outside the grocery store and within a few feet found a penny and a dime. CUTE! We often joke that Doc finds silvers and I find coppers. (Just like our hair colors). At CVS we collected a Nickel and a Quarter. That gave us four coins and an EXACT Hit for the Cycle. (One of each primary coin type: penny, nickel, dime, quarter). CUTE! What are the odds of that?
We found a few more coins, then there was a Coin Mine (12 or more coins at one location) at the next grocery store.
Doc had been in quite a grumpy mood this afternoon due to some dealings with our wireless phone service. He was ready to take “strong actions” with them. After finding the silver/copper coin couple, the Hit-for-the-Cycle, and the Coin Mine, Doc was laughing. We both agreed that Penny Finding is Good for the Soul!
I was thanking the Angels for helping Doc overcome “The Dismals”. I told them I appreciated their presence with us every day. As if to acknowledge that my thoughts were being heard, look at this ”Signature Coin” which I found next …..
Was that a COINcidence?
Since both sides are stamped the same, there is no “Heads or Tails” on this coin.
I guess there is really only one side to take – the Angels’ Side!

This morning Doc and I went to several places – Starbucks, the grocery store, a gas station, a friend’s office, a walk through downtown Glendora, a restaurant and more. Not a single coin was found.
At lunch the friend (D.O.) with whom we were dining, playfully/sarcastically said “Tina just has to ask and the Angels deliver coins for her”. I thought that statement was a bit exaggerated.
Later this afternoon I needed to mail something at the local UPS store. Tom, the owner is super nice and almost always asks me first thing, “how many coins have you found so far today?” I KNEW he would ask today. I could not say “Zero!”
There was a grocery store between where I parked and the UPS store. I started talking to the Angels. “Look I just need ONE penny to show Tom when I walk in there. Would you please consider providing one in the next 2-3 minutes?”
I walked a few feet into the grocery store and noticed a few coins in the change return slot of a vending machine. I grabbed the coins and continued walking. “THANK YOU ANGELS”. That will do!
I kept my hand closed until I reached the UPS store where Tom and I could be surprised together. Let’s see… There are 11 pennies, 3 nickels, 9 dimes, and 5 quarters. That makes 28 coins, for $2.41. And there are THREE Hits for the Cycle in that pile!
The Angels delivered – in Abundance!
ASK and It Shall be Given Unto You.
