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 #611 - Hanging Together

Doc wanted to go out to breakfast. I wanted some of his time to look at our calendars and plan this coming week. So we stopped to eat on our way to the rental condo to work. Found a penny when paying for our meal. (Coin #1).


We spent the day working at the condo. Mom was there working in the back yard. She said she found a dime under one of the paving stones, but then lost it again. She also found a penny in the dirt. The Penny Angels are having fun with her.


Conclusions during today’s work:

Hanging window blinds with cords = marital discord. After a few hours, I was ready to hang more than vertical blinds!

Most things do not fall into “standard” sizes. The kitchen ceiling standard plastic lights panels are 2 ft. x 4 ft. Our track was just a little larger, so the panels would fall out. So frustrating and time consuming.


This evening Doc and I left the condo after 8 PM. Mom wanted a hamburger, so we quickly fetched her one to keep her working for a few more hours. We also claimed a penny and a dime at the fast food drive through window. (Coins #2&3)

Mom reported that she also found a penny after we left as she was taking a load to the dumpster.

Total: 3 Coins P (2), N (0), D (1), Q (0) = $0.12 + 3 indirects

I’ve heard that wallpapering together is tough on a marriage. So is hanging window coverings.
