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 #607 - Cool Finds

Temperatures were expected to soar above 100 degrees again, so we headed to the rental condo early. For adventure (and virgin penny-finding territory) I asked Doc to stop at a new Starbucks. We did. He spotted a penny on his side of the car while ordering his coffee, then we claimed a quarter at the pick-up window (Coins #1&2).

The taco place next door looked empty, so I ran over there while Doc pulled the car around. Claimed a penny. (Coin #3).


Mom arrived at the condo around 9:30 to continue her work in the front yard. By noon she had worked up an appetite and wanted a chicken sandwich. So we fetched her lunch (so she could keep working). El Pollo Loco for food, three pennies and one dime. (Coins #4-7).

Our next task was to get window coverings. Another Home Depot excursion. It was a long process to get all the blinds cut to size. Doc got tired of it and sat down to wait. He found a penny under the chair. (Coin #8)

As we were leaving the store, Doc noticed some sort of coin under the ice cream machine. Now just why was he looking in that direction? (Doc says he was merely noting the cool appeal of the machine). I fetched the dime (Coin #9)

We dropped off the purchased items, then headed off to Cal Poly Pomona where we spent the next few hours working.


Note: Upon entering Home Depot we asked the Penny Angels for a nickel. When we returned to the condo, Mom had found that nickel in the dirt where she was digging!

Mom had been digging in the dirt much of the morning. I told her to watch out for coins! She says she never finds coins. I asked the Penny Angels to prove her wrong. She found a penny, nickel and quarter in that 4 x 8 ft. planter. Dirty Finds, but “Cool Story”. If Mom can manifest things, you can too!

Total: 9 Coins P (7), N (0), D (2), Q (0) = $0.27
