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 #819 - First Concrete

Yesterday we had the Theoretical 6 Ps: Proper Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance”. Today we put that into action by Pumping Plenty of Pounds of Pretty dry concrete until we were Positively Pooped.

I think the photos say it all today: Pumping Concrete!

We collected 5 pennies at McDonalds along with our breakfast. One more penny at lunchtime.

Steve was the guy using the remote control box to manipulate the pumping truck and that incredible 120 ft. long pumping arm. If any of your kids are video game addicts, this would be a potential career for them! Steve was so precise with his moves. Plus it turns out that he also finds pennies and has stories to tell.

I gave him a Penny Card and we had a few moments of Shared

JOY while waiting for the next truckload of concrete. There were 10 loads of concrete poured into the various forms and trenches. More to come next week!

Total: 6 Pennies
