This morning I noticed a penny in the coin tray of Doc’s van and asked him about it. He found the coin late yesterday and forgot to tell me about it. Do I really need to correct yesterday’s blog and email and spreadsheet and ...? Let’s just say it was an early find for today. (Coin #1)
We had an 8:30 meeting at the construction site. Another day of playing in the dirt. Big Mo was in action scraping the lot, spitting mouthfuls into the separator, sorting out the good stuff, and then stomping it back in place at the proper elevation. Fun to watch. Here is a photo of Big Mo in action.
The second photo is of the guys performing their roles: Grader Craig was measuring elevations, Project Manager Daryl was overseeing, and Doc was drinking his coffee!
Daryl brought his wife Daniela along today. She had heard about our house and about our Penny Finding. After the meeting as we were driving to breakfast, Doc remembered the foregone penny from earlier in the week. It was in the median about four car lengths back from the intersection. This morning we were stopped at the red light there and we were the fourth car! Doc spotted his prey and went for the kill. Daryl and Daniela were in the car behind us and laughing at Doc’s antics. (Coin #2)
After a huge breakfast, we were at the register to pay. Daniela exclaimed, “Look at that!” I replied, “That coin is mine!” as I dove for the dime she was nearly stepping on. She looked puzzled, “What coin? I was looking at the pies!” (Coin #3) Shared smiles.
As we exited the freeway on the way home, Doc claimed another Median penny. Seems to be his specialty. (Coin #4)
Doc went out shopping this afternoon. He found one penny at Home Depot and one penny at WalMart. (Coins #5&6)
Total: 6 Coins P (5), N (0), D (1), Q (0) = $0.15
