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.

Day #383 - Your Score?

Day 3 of the new school term. Gosh, I don’t even remember how I found today’s coins.

I left work at 10:45 PM and walked all the way to the outskirts of the parking lot when I realized I had forgotten my lunch pail - and today’s coins that were inside it. Back up to the office ….


I’m pulling out the coins and listening to the recorded message.

Around 2 PM I found 2 pennies at the vending machine. Thank You Penny Angels. My co-worker (the one who tries to out-Find me each day) was just a few seconds behind me and saw me pick up the coins. Penny Finding is a Sport! Tina (2), JR (0). But he kept on walking and returned to the office a little later with two pennies in his hand.

I had to drop off a memo at the Marketplace (and just search on my way through the building). There was a penny under the chair of a pleasant looking gal, so I asked her if she would be willing to hand me the penny under her chair. Shared the Penny Finding Story and captured a Penny Smile. There was a dime and then a penny under a vacant table. Much easier to retrieve, but not nearly as fun.


From 3-6 PM I was teaching classes. One student asked me about the Penny Pendant I was wearing. Told the class that story would have to wait until further along in the course before they got “the Secret”. J

From 6-10, I was at an event which my student officers put on. I was so proud of them (sounds like a parent talking) and told them so in our debriefing and evaluation session.

I arrived home after 11 PM to find another one of Doc’s Love Letters on the Dining Table: Stater Bros - 2¢, KFC - 10¢, Starbucks - a guitar pick.

Do you get the feeling this man goes from one food place to another all day long?

At least he kept his note short and sweet tonight.


Today’s Total: 8 coins P (6), N (0), D (2), Q (0) = $0.26

Thought: If Sharing Joy was a game, what would be your score today?

I generated at least 3-4 Penny Smiles, c’mon - I challenge you for tomorrow!
