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 #1,205 - Full Day

We needed to be at the Penny Palace by 7:30 a.m. so breakfast was once again McDonalds for sandwiches on the run. Doc placed the order while I hopped out and walked nearby. I collected a dime and a penny. (Coins #1&2)

I am too exhausted to write a whole bunch, so here’s a quick list of some of today’s actions at the Palace. (Also see the video).

  • Miguel and Serafin power washed the patio and driveway.
  • Doc went to Home Depot (trip #1) for bolts to secure the mailbox post.
  • Neighbor’s gardeners trimmed vines totally off of South fence - showing how badly it needs painting.
  • Tina and Doc mended a punctured watering hose.
  • Rick brought in a truckload of dirt and used the Bobcat to place it in the equestrian area.
  • Doc built up the dirt berm along the South wall.
  • Doc and Miguel put the extensions and caps on the South drain line.
  • Serafin put the stone veneer around the base of the mailbox post.
  • Miguel filled the voids around the front trellis posts.
  • Tina glued the protector caps on the arms of the teak benches.
  • HVAC Brian connected the dryer vent and gas line.
  • Iron Jimmy connected the remote controller and motor to the driveway gate.
  • Doc went to Home Depot (trip #2) for grass seeds and bags of topping mix.
  • Rick, Miguel and Serafin distributed the seed and mix.
  • Tina painted the mailbox post.

After 10 hours of work, we locked up the Penny Palace and headed home. Stopped for petrol and a coffee (Doc) and five pennies (Tina). (Coins #3-7)

Total: 7 Coins P (6), N (0), D (1), Q (0) = $0.16
