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.
Today more Glitches were resolved
than created.This week is bound
to be better than last week.
Doc and Sparky started their day by
going for a coffee and a penny.(Coin #1)
Door Lock Fixed
At 8:15 a.m. Serviceman Breck
arrived.The first thing he did
was to work on the front door latch Glitch.Nice to be able to bring his gear into the house that way.Then he replaced the defective window
sash in the Aussie room - another Glitch.He brought along the final window screen, but it was still too
large.Glitch.He modified that.Glitch corrected. Now the windows and
screens should all be operating properly.
Pond Pump Modified
Landscape Eddie arrived around
8:30.He was checking the
irrigation lines, the watering times, the condition of the plants, etc.He improved the water pump area for
minimization.He also noted
excessive algae growth (because I have not chlorinated the water as I
should).I asked where to get an
automatic chlorine feeder.Doc and
I immediately obtained one on our way to the Pomona house.Glitch Control.
By noon the two guys had left,
there were no cable or phone people to deal with, and the house was momentarily
quiet.I just stopped and absorbed
the silence.It was nice.
Most of the afternoon was spent
calling various lending agents and researching our refinance options.The options were not looking promising
at that point.Potential glitches
with several lenders.
At 4 p.m. we headed to the Pomona
house.We stopped for a chlorine
“floater thingy” for the pond.I
needed a coin for today, so Doc pulled into a self-serve car wash.I found a very battered and worn penny
in the empty field next to the car wash.Indicative of my condition at the end of last week.(Coin #2)
More Incoming STUFF
Then Doc stopped at a convenience
store for a beverage.I spotted a
penny about 20 ft. from the van before Doc had even stopped the engine.When we got out of the van I pointed
the coin out for Doc.He could not
see it until he was about three ft. from it.(Coin #3)
We sorted and packed things until
Doc was too hungry to work any longer.Doc looked as exhausted as I was at the end of last week.It’s good to take turns and not both be
down at the same time.
We headed out for food.I collected four pennies at the drive
through window.(Coins #4-7).
During dinner we got a call from Cable Company Penny to continue working on our
file.It has been great to have
her helping on our case.We rushed
home in order to speak with her before her 8 p.m. quitting time.We are working toward more Glitch
Resolutions with her and overcoming the myriad of previous screw ups.
