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.
This morning Doc and I tried to
create a video from the photos we had selected.After several unproductive hours, we were both
frustrated.Doc went out for food,
I cried, sent two emails to friends I thought might help, and then attacked a
few boxes.One friend did call
back and gave Doc some pointers.
Doc has a sore throat and has been
coughing and sneezing all day.This afternoon he just wanted to sleep.But Fil had emailed and offered video advice, so Doc spent a
few hours organizing the photos and trying to figure things out.
At 2 p.m. our friend Lita arrived
to help me prepare the house for the upcoming events.She oiled all the dining chairs, polished the wood tables
and helped hang the front door wreath.Then we created a poster of the neighborhood layout so
guests could put indicators showing their house.We assembled more Open House invitations and Neighborhood
flyers.It was over 100 degrees
today, but we headed out for 45 minutes and delivered the remaining
invitations.Good to get those
finished - especially since that event is just 10 days away.It was really nice to have her
loving pre’cents’ and helping hands.
In order to find today’s coin I
needed to get out of the house.At
7:30 Doc and I headed out.Doc
said we should stop at the 7-11 store and look there.We found 5 pennies and 2 dimes in the gas pumping and
parking areas.(Coins #1-7)
For dinner we visited an El Pollo
Loco drive up window.Doc had to
get out of the van to “get to his wallet”.(Which he keeps in his back pocket). He also bent over to
collect a dime and two pennies. (Coins #8-10)
Doc had a craving for beef jerky,
so we stopped at a convenience store.We collected four pennies there.(Coins #11-14)
Doc had also collected a nickel
when he went to McDonalds for lunch. (Coin #15)
