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.
This morning Doc said I must push
everything else aside until his second Final Exam was prepared. So I assisted him until he was
satisfied. J Maribel arrived at 9:30 to do three hours of
some basic cleaning. We still have
Ramboard on the floors for protection and it ‘sheds’ constantly. So do the three dogs.
I was expecting Landscaping Eddie
at 10 a.m. but around 11 he called to say maybe tomorrow instead. No waterfall running tonight.
At 1 p.m. I headed over to the
Pomona House. Just before I arrived
there, I read Pippy’s odometer - it read 100,000 miles! She was very dirty and I could barely see
through the windshield so I stopped to give her a Celebratory rinse off. Three pennies found while waiting. (Coins #1-3). When we began construction I asked Pippy to
be my faithful companion throughout the project and she sure has been.
At the Pomona house, the remaining
Stuff is overwhelming. I sorted, then
boxed up 5-6 boxes. Checked emails as
well. Called about retractable screen
doors for the Grand Room. Called about
sprinkler fixes at Rental House #1, etc.
I had a 5 p.m. meeting with Raul
back at the Penny Palace. Saturday I saw
him clearing the vacant land across the street and asked him to spend an hour
on our place to suck up all the dead leaves.
While he did that, I washed the bird xxxx off two garage doors and the
walkways. The Penny Palace looks much
better after a little ‘refreshing’.
It is 7:40 p.m. as I am typing
this. The sun is setting, two dogs are
exploring the yard while one is snoring
next to me. Doc is still at school. A few birds are chirping. The breeze is gently ruffling leaves in the
trees. Tranquility. Nice.
Just as I finished typing that
paragraph I noticed that Sparky was not within sight or sound. I ran around the house and yard looking for
him. No signs of him. Escapee!
Sound the alert. I ran out to the
front yard and called for him. Fortunately
he responded. Usually he runs the other
direction. New Action Item - Gate work.
Doc came home with one penny he
found at school near the bicycle rack.
