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 #840 - Action

Can’t do any work before 7 AM (City Regulations out of consideration to the neighbors). But at 7:01 there was action! Concrete load #1 was poured and by 7:15 the first garage slab was in place. The concrete remaining in the truck went for half of the second garage slab. Truck #1 departed and the waiting septic tank hauler moved in.

The septic delivery truck was huge. It was not able to maneuver the turn into the yard. So the white wood fence needed immediate removal and it needed to be quick since the next load of concrete was on its way. Just as the grader and driver were asking me for my decisions, I received a call from a good friend who said they were in need of some immediate help. There was no one else to assist in getting some urgently needed documents today, could I please help? Yikes. Too many incomings.

The white fence was removed, the construction fence was peeled back, the delivery truck made the turn, the septic tank was hoisted into the pit, the tank was leveled, the truck was moved, the seepage pit liners were offloaded, the second concrete load arrived, the next garage pad was poured and more!, Whew! But at 10 AM suddenly everything was quiet except for the singing birds. It was almost surreal.

At 11 AM I took off to take care of some things and stop for office supplies. Went into the CVS store strictly to look for coins. One dime and one penny. (Coins #1&2)

The afternoon was spent calling about stucco, scheduling the tool shed construction, meeting with Daryl and so much more. Too much to write.


This evening Doc wanted to go out for dinner. He then insisted upon going to the hardware store and then the grocery store. I think he just wanted a coin for today. We found 4 U.S. pennies and one Canadian one at various spots within the grocery store. (Coins #3-7).

As I am writing to you, Doc is reviewing the videos from today. (The three videos included here total under one minute. Doc was at school all day and was frustrated that I was getting all the action and he wasn’t getting any.

Total: 7 Coins P (5), N (0), D (1), Q (0) + 1 Canadian = $0.15 + ?
