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 #1,095 - Busy Ants

When you were a kid did you ever have one of those ant farms? You could watch the worker ants carry loads, create tunnels, and work all day long. That is how it felt at the Penny Palace today. Workers were going back and forth in every direction and creating something wonderful.

The tiles guys were grouting the brown and grey edge tiles.

The finish guys were installing locks, adjusting sliders, and placing hardware on doors.

The cabinetry guys finished their installations.

The garage doors were installed.

One electrical guy was installing ceiling cans and lights.

The roofers came to reinforce the troublesome valley area.

One landscaper roughly laid some stones on the steps to see if I like them.

It was non-stop activity until 5 p.m. when we locked the gate.

I stopped at a tile store for some grout, then Doc and I took some of the leftover tile from the Penny Palace and left it at the new rental house. One bathroom currently has 1”x1” pink tile and the other has lavender tile. That is not going to rent very well in today’s market. The contractor was working there today and said someone has already inquired about renting the unit. Yipee!


Next we stopped at Home Depot for more door hardware and some lighting fixtures. I found a penny just within the entrance door.

Doc found his coin (a dime) this morning when he went for coffee. He said it was right in front of him on the condiment counter where he was mixing his morning concoction.

This evening we signed a counter offer for Replacement Property #2. We don’t go to shopping malls to do our Christmas shopping, we go to the Real Estate office!

Total: 2 Coins P (1), N (0), D (1), Q (0) = $0.11
