Doc and I had planned a special afternoon with our friend Lita. It was something which came up unexpectedly a few days ago and things just “clicked” into place for a wonderful day today.
Doc figured we would not find coins during our ‘date’ time, so he “negotiated” with me and we made a quick morning run to Starbucks. Doc went through the drive up window for his coffee, a nickel, a dime and a quarter! (Coins #1-3). I walked the gas station and fast food nearby - no coins!
I could not go home without a coin. We just needed one little penny to complete the “Hit for the Cycle”. We stopped at another gas station / convenience store. No coins spotted initially, but upon my departure, I collected one lonely penny. Meanwhile Doc and Sparky found a penny in the parking lot. (Coins #4&5)
We met Lita at 1 PM and went to a performance at the Lewis Family Playhouse which is in the city where we are constructing the new house. Doc and I had been wanting to explore that facility, so today was the perfect opportunity to do so. We enjoyed the hilarious play, “The Man Who Came to Dinner”. Then Lita and I ditched Doc.
Doc went for dinner at Carl’s Jr. and collected a dime. (Coin #6). Lita and I went for dinner elsewhere, then out to the lot to show her the ‘house’. Our first official “houseguest” at the Penny Palace.
Total: 6 Coins P (2), N (1), D (2), Q (1) = $0.52
