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 #1,158 - More Dirt

I spent the morning with Tile Bob and Tony. They were placing the Cappuccino colored tile on the secondary kitchen counter. Bob said it has been years since he has done a tile counter. No one uses tile any more - it is so Old Fashioned!

Doc went to the monthly Homeowners Association Meeting for Rental #2. We have submitted an application to re-roof the house and the board must approve it. We also requested permission to touch up the paint on the house.

Doc found 3 pennies in the planter bed and one penny inside the 7-11 store when he stopped for coffee. (Doc #1-4)

Late this morning a truck and tandem trailer load of topsoil was delivered to the Penny Palace. This afternoon Grader Rick came and moved it to various spots around the front yard. A year ago we began moving dirt and rocks and we are STILL moving dirt and rocks!

At 1:00 p.m. I met with Iron Jimmy to go over the details of the upstairs railing. It sounds like he forgot about the circles (to represent pennies) which we had discussed. I will need to get to his shop in the next day or two to check on that project.

This afternoon Doc and I cleaned out the detached garage. Now if we could just keep the STUFF from getting back in there … Tomorrow morning the painter is scheduled to begin the floor epoxy process.


Doc and I locked up the jobsite at 4:30 and headed to Rental House #2 to meet potential renters. I stopped at a store for a piece of jerky and a penny. (Coin #1).

We met the renters - 3 adults, 3 kids. That would be six persons using one shower/tub. They all seemed to like the house and are planning to start the move in this weekend. Yikes! That means we need to finish all those last minute details.

On the way home I stopped to fuel Pippy. Collected 6 pennies and a nickel at that stop. (Coins #2-8)

We fed the dogs, split a can of soup, then headed out for our weekly grocery shopping. One dime and two pennies at the first grocery store, the same at the third grocery store. (Coins #9-14)

Total: 18 Coins P (15), N (1), D (2), Q (0) = $0.40
