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 #1,090 - Pleasant Company

This morning I visited the Fixture Shop to place the order for the finish plumbing items. That included items such faucets, toilets, some of the sinks and more. Thank goodness I had my “Shopping List” 95% complete due to several previous visits with the sales rep and plenty of on-line research. Finalizing the order still took 1.5 hours!

I arrived at the jobsite around 11:30 and found two homemade tamales waiting for me. (Compliments of Tile George). Nice welcome. Then at lunchtime his wife brought homemade burritos. Pretty nice to have subs spoiling me! Plus we have such fun working together.

My objectives today at the Penny Palace included working on tile details and cleaning the door tracks for the patio doors so they would slide better.

Jeff, the solar installer said we passed the City Solar Panel Inspection this morning. That is good news.

The tile layers, cabinet installers, and landscapers continued doing what they are supposed to be doing.

There is a minor glitch with an exhaust pipe being in the way of the cabinets. I called HVAC Brian to ask if he could drop by in the next few days and take a look at it. Within the hour he arrived and said by tomorrow morning the issue will be resolved. Nice.

Grader Rick arrived at 4 p.m. and shoved more dirt around.

Doc visited the site after being away for several days. He was pleasantly surprised. The cabinets sure change the feel in the heart of the house.


After work, Doc and I parked Pippy at the nearby 7-11 store. Doc bought a coffee, while I dove under the counter for 3 pennies, a nickel and a dime. (Coins #1-5) Next we drove out to the area where we are considering buying those investment properties. Wanted to get a feeling for the area after dark. We had dinner out there at a local grocery store. Tasty meal.

In reflecting upon today, what stands out is the Fantastic people who were at the Penny Palace. There were three great guys and one gal working on the tile, 5 guys on landscaping, 2 guys installing cabinets, the solar installer, the City inspector, the HVAC guy and his friend, the grading guy, and Doc! Nice to be in such Pleasant Company.

Total: 5 Coins P (3), N (1), D (1), Q (0) = $0.18
