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 #1,227 - Quick Visit

Doc wanted to go out for breakfast before he would cooperate and work on our list of Action Items for today.  So we had a quick meal at a local café.  On the way home, Doc stopped at a Circle K store so I could look for coins.  We got three pennies there  (Coins #1-3).

We packed up a van-load of stuff and headed for the Penny Palace.   Stopped at Home Depot for shelving hardware, a light fixture, paint, other supplies, and one dime.   (Coin #4)

We arrived at the Penny Palace around 12:30 and spent a hurried hour unloading things, putting shelves in the lawn shed and taking solar readings.

On the way home Doc stopped for a coffee, but I questioned his ‘cents ablity’ since it was such a hot day.  So he bought an Icee instead.  I collected a penny.  (Coin #5)

The glass dome of ceiling light we bought this morning was shattered, so we returned to Home Depot to exchange it.  Doc collected a median find penny as we exited the freeway.  (Coin #6).
There was one penny at the drive through diner when we got lunch.  (Coin #7)

This afternoon we took the doggies to get their nails trimmed.  A dime there.  (Coin #8).  Then Doc took the van to the car wash.  One penny there.  (Coin #9)

This evening I spent 2 hours sorting, cleaning and packing things for the Penny Palace.  I begged Doc to work with me for 15 minutes on some of his stuff.  I now have a load to take to the jobsite tomorrow.

Rats!  I left my cameras out in the lawn shed.

I spent several hours this evening paying bills. That is the largest stack I have seen.  Tonight I began filling out “Change of Address” forms on the bills. New Experience!  Doc bought this house just before we got married and we have been here for 30 years!

Total:   9 Coins        P (7), N (0), D (2), Q (0) = $0.27
