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 #1,220 - Shoes

 Transporting Shoes

Daughter-in-law Laura has been advising me to start packing things I don’t use.  So I packed up all my shoes.  For the past year I have been wearing my construction boots EVERY day - almost from the time I wake up in the morning until I go to bed.  Who needs the other shoes?

This morning Doc had coffee with son, Brian, then we went out for breakfast and a planning session.

Work Boots
I was really tempted to stay away from the Penny Palace today, but could not waste the opportunity of getting Doc’s assistance for a few hours.  We expect the dumpster to be taken away this week, so we need to make sure we have cleared out any remaining large debris.  We cut up lumber, tossed boxes and cleaned a bit.

Cleaning Aussie Bathroom
One goal today was to clean the Aussie bathroom.  I figured between the two of us we could have that done in under an hour.  It’s only a 7 x 9 ft. room!  After an hour I was tired and decided I could finish on another day.

On the way home from the Penny Palace, Doc stopped for petrol and coffee.  I found a dime and he found a penny. (Coins #1&2).  We drove past a key and lock kiosk to check on hours of operation. Doc found a dime and I found a penny.  (Coins #3&4)  The score was now tied.

This evening at 8 p.m. we headed out for our routine grocery shopping.  We collected 4 coins at the first store, a penny at the second store, and another dime/penny combination at the third store. (Coins #5-11) We were home at 10 p.m. for dinner.

I have been told that eleven is a good number.  Today we found three sets of 11¢ and the total number of coins was eleven.  Doc noted that the sum of the digits for 47¢ (4+7) also equals eleven.

Total:   11 Coins        P (7), N (0), D (4), Q (0) = $0.47
