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 #898 - More

I was content with my single dime find, but Doc is an addict and wanted more.

This morning Doc went to CPP to work. I did things at home like meeting three new neighbors, updating the neighborhood watch map, updating my Alumni database from school, researching fireplaces, etc.


On Doc’s way home from school he stopped at McDonalds for a snack and a penny. (Coin #1) He said there were more coins at the window which he could not get, so a few hours later when we went grocery shopping, we stopped there first. The line of cars was too long, so I looked at the nearby KFC instead. Collected my dime (Coin #2) and was done.

Doc insisted we search the car wash for more coins before leaving. We each found two pennies. (Coins #3-6).

Doc next insisted we search at the high school parking lot. I found a token and a shiny penny. (Coin #7) Doc returned to the van saying “I have 5 more pennies”. Then he opened his hand to discover more than he expected -- 4 pennies and a dime! (Coins #8-12).

Doc found a penny in the parking lot when we stopped to check his mailbox. (Coin #13).

No coins in either of the first two grocery stores, but several coins at the third store. Before we even began shopping I collected a dime and 3 pennies. (Coins #14-17). Doc found a Mexican peso and a 50 centavos coin. (Coins #18&19). While paying for our groceries and returning to the van we collected 5 more pennies. (Coins #20-24).

The phone was ringing as we arrived home. My brother Mike (who lives 3 houses away) needed assistance for a few minutes. There were 3 more pennies in the street as I walked down to his house. (Coins #25-27).

Just ordinary coin finds today. Nothing particularly interesting stands out. I think tonight I will glue more Penny Cards and log in the Penny Finds for May. Let’s see what those totaled?

Total: 25 US + 2 Mexican Coins P (22), N (0), D (3), Q (0) = $0.52 + 1.5 Pesos + a token
