Today we kept the Aussies out of the shops and had them socializing instead.
While Merril and Doc headed out to the jobsite, Shirlee and I headed for the post office. She has knitted two caps for Michelle’s Place cancer center and wanted to post those before flying home.
There was a little discount store next to the post office, so we ventured in there looking for coins. We searched for coins carefully around the entrance and inside the store. No coins. As we were leaving, there was a very shiny penny, heads up which just gleamed in the doorway. Definitely a mushroom coin. (Coin #1)
Upon returning home, Shirlee stopped briefly to Chit Chat with several neighbors.
Doc and Merril stopped at a Starbucks on the way to the jobsite. Merril went next door to investigate the Chick-fil-A. Doc collected one penny. (Coin #2).
The framers are now working on the details. There is roofing over the every day entry. There are some decorative beams in the Grand Room ceiling. Doc found a penny in the Grand Room and Merril said “What about the penny right next to it?” (Coins #3&4)
We had leftover Chinese food for lunch, then Merril headed for the TV, Shirlee for a nap, and Doc to Starbucks for a coffee. He also found a dime. (Coin #5)
I left at 3:15 to meet up with friend Norma and her family. They were in the area and wanted to see the Penny Palace before meeting up with Shirlee. What great fun to give them a tour. The new house is looking good.
While I was gone from the house, former solar car raycers Roseanne, Dave, and Erika came to Chit Chat with Shirlee. They brought a new baby, grandma, apricot pie plus 79 pennies and a dime which Mrs. Marquez had found.
At 6 p.m. I returned to the house with Norma and Family. It was now their turn to Chit Chat with Shirlee. She sure is popular.
Doc and Merril attended a live baseball game - Rancho Cucamonga Quakes vs. Lake Elsinore Storm at the EpiCenter. They found one penny there. (Coin #6) Of course there was much Chit Chat when they arrived home with the tales of their adventure.
Total: 6 Coins P (5), N (0), D (1), Q (0) = $0.15
