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.

Next I drove out to the Duarte townhouse to leave a key for the Homeowners Association . Then it was 2 hours of research at Lowe’s on faucets, doors, tile, paint …

Doc collected a penny and a dime on his breakfast run to McDonalds

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