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 wrote and posted two Penny Tales
this morning.Trying desperately
to catch up.Lots of chores around
the house, then headed out at 3:45 p.m.
Doc insisted upon stopping at the
7-11 store for coffee before we reached the freeway.I collected one penny inside and he got his silver coin when
he walked out.(Coins #1&2)
We worked at the Pomona house until
6:30.One task was to change out
the old fluorescent light bulbs in the kitchen.Not so easy.It
was challenging to get the old bulbs out and the new ones in.Then we discovered that one of the four
electronic ballasts was bad.Ugg.Will address that
tomorrow when George comes over again.
Installing Towel Rack
Stopped for a Mexican counter
meal.Doc spotted a Sit-N-Find
penny as he pulled up to the diner.I found another penny when I walked around to the drive up window.(Coins #3&4).
When we conducted our Sunday night
grocery shopping Doc collected a double penny (2 stuck together) at the coin
counting kiosk.Evidently the
machine didn’t like fat coins.(Coins #5&6)
I have a long lists of “Quickies
for Doc” posted in the kitchen.Those are 15-20 minute tasks which he could be helpful with (instead of
watching TV or if he wants to score ‘Brownie points’ with me).Tonight Doc offered to tackle one of
them - the towel rack in the Master Bath.According to the box, one at a time you just pull out the hinge pins of
the standard bathroom door, drop on the
towel rack, and replace the hinges.Easy. Simple. No tools needed except a screw driver and punch to get the
hinges out.Wrong.Nothing at the Penny Palace is standard.Of
course we had to measure and drill new holes to fit the spacing on our
door.Doc was not excited.
