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 #934 - Recovery

Yesterday's Raycers Reunion made two of today's local newspapers: The Daily Bulletin and the San Gabriel Valley Tribune The actual paper copies also included two great photos.


Since a few of the reunion guests are from out of state, this morning we deserted our Aussie houseguests and left them to forage in our cupboards. We then enjoyed breakfast and a tour of the Penny Palace with some of the other people before they flew off in various directions. (See video)

Doc found the first penny today actually in the Grand Room of the Penny Palace! One of the framers probably lost it while doing the scaffolding work.

At 1 p.m. when driving home, we stopped at a 7-11 so that I could find my coin for today. One penny was spotted before we even parked the car. (Coin #2) A dime was just outside the door, then 3 pennies inside and a fourth penny when returning to the van. (Coins #3-7).


I spent the afternoon mostly doing ‘clean up’ from the reunion. After a few hours Doc returned to the jobsite. He spent 2 hours watering the dust. He said much more roof sheathing is in place and the covering over the front door was framed.

Doc stopped for a Bad Ass coffee on his way home. When driving away from there he spotted a shiny penny in the parking lot. There were no cars behind him, so he applied the breaks and dove for the coin. He then found a dull dime, right beside the penny. (Coins #8&9)

Lesson: Doc said, “Just like some people -- the shiny penny (although very pretty), only had 1/10 the value of the dull dime”.

Total: 9 Coins P (7), N (0), D (2), Q (0) = $0.27
