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.
I thought today would be THE
Day. We would FINALLY get internet,
phone and cable services installed. We
had 100% assurances from Supervisor Penny and it is the 25th of the month. Even Doc’s blueberry pancakes turned out well
It had been years since I had made
anything using our crockpot. I had specifically
positioned our microwave over a counter so it could be used to vent crockpots,
rice cookers and other appliances which might release heat or steam. Today I tested that plan. It worked and Doc enjoyed the results.
Neighbors say they have enjoyed our
posted banners, so today I put up a new one:
60% Moved In.
Hidden (?) Conduit
We waited and waited and waited for
the cable company to arrive. I kept busy
with the handrail sealing and various other tasks, but was growing more and
more frustrated on ANOTHER one of my days wasted on interfacing with the cable
Finally at 3:45 Cable Installer
Ryan arrived. He asked where the Cable
Bury Crew was? We wondered the same
thing. He made a call. “The crew was scheduled for this afternoon
‘per customer request!’” HUH? No, we were guaranteed first thing this
morning. And besides, if they were
scheduled for this afternoon as claimed, then where are they? His response, “You don’t want to know”.
I was assured, 100% guaranteed that
the Cable Bury Crew would be out at 8 a.m. tomorrow.
By 6:45 p.m. Doc needed coffee and
I needed to get away from the house. We
headed over to Pomona. Doc got his
coffee at Starbucks while I got a nickel and a penny. We worked at Pomona until around 10 p.m. Then we were both craving ice cream so we
stopped at a grocery store. I collected
3 pennies and a dime there.
