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.
Seven days of Penny Tales to catch
up on. I thought running a
construction site was grueling. With 4 kidz who wanted full-time attention,
there was no time for a shower let alone concentrated working time on a
computer for a few hours!
Doc met Handyman George and his
wife Ana at Home Depot at 7:30 to buy needed materials for the day. By 8 a.m. they were hard at work at the
Pomona house refurbishing all four side gates, fixing up the lawn shed and
various other tasks.
I managed to get one Penny Tale
written and posted this morning. Then I had numerous chores and errands to run
before getting to the Pomona house.
I was at Home Depot by 10 a.m. to get supplies. The check-out lines were long and I had
been in the store for over an hour.
I was impatiently standing in line and the customer ahead of me was
having difficulties. The nudging
said: “Hop over to the other line”.
I did so and KNEW there would be a penny waiting for me there. Sure enough, a bright shiny one. (Coin #1)
Lawn Shed Renovations
George left us at 1:30. We were totally exhausted but kept
working for a while. On the way
home we stopped at Home Depot to return some items. Another penny there.
At the Penny Palace Doc pretty much
collapsed and shut down for the day.
At 4:45 Gardener Raul arrived, so I
worked with him in the yard. While he blew and sucked leaves, I pulled weeds,
cleaned up the dog poop, etc.
I found one penny by the street
when I went to check the mailbox.
When Doc came back to life, he
headed for dinner at McDonalds where he claimed two pennies. (Coins #4&5)
