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.
The primary focus this morning was
to prepare the rear garage for the arrival of the 38 Chevy. So we assembled shelving and tried to shuffle
some of the stuff so it was out of the way.
We made a call to the nieces and
nephews for their birthdays. Since they
moved away we sure miss those bi-monthly play times we had with them for so
many years. We are looking forward to a
few days with them in July.
Charging the Chevy
Around 2 p.m. Doc was getting
hungry and we needed to get an additional shelf for the storage rack, so it was
time to head out. We were approaching
Lowe’s when Doc noticed a local airport on the North side of the Lowe’s center. He detoured into the airport grounds to
investigate and search for a diner. Sure
enough! There was Maniac Mike’s Airport
diner. Lunch was a fun and unique
At Lowe’s we returned an item, got
supplies and Doc collected one dime
(Coin #1). Doc pulled into a 7-11
for a cold beverage (icee) and so I could get MY coin for today. Got a penny and a quarter (Coins #2&3).
We spent a few hours at the Pomona
house organizing things and going through old papers - school records,
insurance papers, property papers, bank statements, etc.
On the way home we stopped at an
auto supply place to get a drip pan for under the Chevy. Then a stop at the new, huge thrift store
which just opened. Needed to find their
hours for accepting donations.
We were almost home and realized we
had forgotten to buy the additional shelf at Lowe’s this morning. That was the purpose of going . We made Trip #2 to Lowe’s and obtained the
shelf, one dime at check-out and then a penny by my door of the van. (Coins #4&5).
