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 #527 - Slow Lane Sunday

It seemed like I was in the slow lane today. Compared to the chaotic past week it was wonderful just to spend a few hours this afternoon with the family - at the home of our son, Brian!. We reviewed his recent home improvements and enjoyed a delicious and healthy BBQ. Then spent an entire hour just sitting on a picnic blanket doing nothing (except eating fruit juice popsicles).

We were assigned to bring a veggie platter to the BBQ today. We thought it would be easy to swing past a grocery store and grab a tray on our way to Pasadena. No veggie tray (or coins) at Traders Joe’s. No veggie tray (or coins) at the second store either! At the thirds store we at least found a penny! Finally at the fourth store, we acquired the veggie tray - and another penny!

It took an hour to hunt down this veggie tray - and Doc doesn’t even really like veggies. As we were driving away from the grocery store, son #2 called saying, “Don’t bother to buy a veggie tray, we’ve already brought one!” Timing is so important.

Total: 2 Pennies
