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.

Day #1,314 - Clear View

Brian Washing House

This morning Doc visited Iron Jimmy to submit our designs for the lawn shed support brackets.  Last night Doc did some calculations to determine the size iron to use, hole diameters, etc.  This morning I added a decorative triangulation piece to make it look like other truss work around the house.

I met window washing Brian at the Pomona house at 10:15 this morning.  Assisted him by moving aside window treatments, wiping the floors as he power washed the house, etc.  The windows were so dirty we could barely see through them any longer.  What a difference when you have a Clear View.

On Roof for Cleaning
Lesson today:  periodically step back from the daily grind and do something to wipe away the pollution in order to get a Clear View.

When Doc arrived, we worked on the front half of the garage.  Moved all the sheets of lumber, molding, and other items.  At 3:30 we headed back to the Penny Palace to cut up and discard much of the old lumber.  Dirty job.

Doc Cleaning Garage
Doc went to fuel himself while I stopped to fuel Pippy.  There was a dime in the pumping area.  (CoIn #1)  I said, “Thanks Angels, but reminder that this is PENNY Tales”.   So I had to go inside the convenience store.   There was a bright shiny penny just inside the door on the floor mat. (Coin #2)  That was pretty obvious. Thanks Angels.  Doc meanwhile collected four pennies and a dime at McDonalds.  (Coins #3-7)

At 6 p.m. Doc headed out to meet a co-worker for coffee and a foot massage.  I stayed at the Penny Palace to wash our dirty work clothes, draft out five Penny Tales, address some rental property issues, and deal with the yucky garage stuff we have been bringing home recently.

After Doc’s “meeting”, he stopped at the grocery store for a few items and two pennies.  (Coins #8&9)

Total:   9  Coins        P (7), N (0), D (2), Q (0) = $0.27
