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 #1,226 - Laundered

On the way to the Penny Palace, Doc stopped at McDonald’s. While he waited in the drive-up line, I wandered off looking for coins. I immediately did a SingSong.  The birds were singing which made me think of the Tiki Room at Disneyland. Immediately found a penny.  Doc got his penny at the drive-up window.  (Coins #1&2)

We unloaded gear at the Penny Palace and then took Sparky out in the yard.  He immediately wandered over to the corner on the North side where there is a small opening between the new iron fencing and the dirt.  Doc said, “We need Iron Jimmy to put a small blocking piece there.”  Within minutes Jimmy’s Truck pulled up and he had installed that block.  Talk about Manifesting!

First Load of Laundry
We tested the washing machine and clothes dryer by washing a load of wet rags.  Those seem to be working well.  These new washers without the center agitators sure make funny noises.

Sparky tested his new doggie door.  It is the deluxe one with double doors which makes it harder to use than the one he is used to.

Window Brian continued his work today.  He cleaned the second story windows and tried installing the window screens.  Some of the new ones are STILL oversized and will not fit in the windows.
Shelving Assembly

Window Washing
I put clear sealer on the upstairs handrail and the undersides of the stair treads.  Doc graded quizzes and took solar data.  Then we both assembled some temporary shelves.

Clear Sealer on Upstairs Railing
We closed down the Penny Palace at 5 p.m. and Doc headed for coffee.  When he parked the van at 7-11 he said jokingly, “So do you see a coin before even getting out of the van?”  I looked out my window.  “Yes, as a matter-of-fact there is a penny next to my door”.   (Coin #3).  There was another penny by the gas pumps.  (Coin #4)

When we got home, Doc and I both really wanted a nap, but agreed to spend a few minutes in the yard and lawn shed.  That turned into 1.5 hours, but we got a lot done.  We were not planning to go to the Penny Palace tomorrow, but now I have a load of stuff dragged out of the lawn shed and garage which need to go …

Total:   4 Pennies

Did the bird sing words and the flowers croon?

Great. So now that song is stuck in my head. I might as well cruise the vending machines... two dimes.
