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 #823 - "Sloppy"

Not every day is a “Ten” (on a scale from 1-10). Most days are a comfortable 7 or 8.

Today Doc went to campus. On the way he stopped at McDonald’s for a snack, three pennies, a quarter, and a Canadian penny. (Coins #1-4 +).

At 2:30 we headed out to the lot to check the construction progress. Dashed into a 7-11 Store so that I could collect a penny for today. (Coin #5)


The concrete crew was just quitting for the day. Today they had removed some of the formwork from Pour #1 and began building some of the formwork for Pour #2. When Doc asked Matt about the metal inserts between the rows, Matt explained how those inserts keep the boards in alignment, so the walls don’t get “sloppy” and deform.

Thought: What devices can we use in our daily lives to keep us “straight” and from getting “sloppy”?


We made a quick stop at the cabinetry shop to just say hello and dream for a few minutes. While I went inside, Doc and Sparky walked the parking lot. They collected two pennies and a car wash token. (Coins #6&7 + other).

Just before we arrived home, Doc claimed another one of his Median Finds. (Coin #8)

Total: 8 US Coins P (7), N (0), D (0), Q (1) = $0.32
+ Canadian Penny + Car Wash Token
