Day #1,260 - Patience Teting
This morning Doc and I spent the first few hours at the Penny Palace. We emptied boxes, then worked in the breakfast nook area. We tidied, then got the table extension out of deep storage. It has been 6+ months since we bought the table and this was the first time we had it totally assembled.
At the crack of noon we finally headed for the Pomona house. When Doc stopped for petrol, we found a penny at the gas pump, then a dirt penny in a planter. (Coins #1&2).
At our lunch stop we found two dirt pennies in a planter. (Coins #3&4)
At the Pomona house Doc moved things around in the garage. We were expecting someone at 4 p.m. to come over and buy our son's trailer. The 38 Chevy and lots of other things needed to be moved in order to clear a path for the trailer to get from the back yard to the front yard.
I made a phone call regarding some retirement questions. I was on hold for 2 hours and 18 minutes! That sure tested my patience!
The trailer buyer arrived and the sale was completed. The trailer has been sitting in the yard for at least a decade.
At 5:15 p.m. two of our favorite students arrived. I have been on a leave of absence for two years and missing some of 'the kids'. We gave Kevin and Andrea a tour of the Pomona house, then headed for an all-you-can-eat buffet. What student would turn down a free meal?
After dinner it was off to the Penny Palace for a tour. Andrea is very creative and is interested in recycling. She liked the recycled glass counter tops and other features of the PP
When our guests left, Doc said "we really should have been working on packing or the house, and the kids should have been working on their final projects or studying for next week's exams, But it sure was fun to have time with them".
Total: 4 Pennies
