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 #1,383 - Pleasant Day

Doc was looking really miserable today.  He got up, showered, ate, and took a nap.  He went to school and said he was only able to lecture for about half his class periods.  He arrived home at 9 p.m. just totally wiped out.

Scholarship Recipient Jacqueline
Today I worked with Cleaning Maribel from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.  I finally uncovered the flooring in the Dining Room.  Had not seen it since it was installed many, many months ago.

After Maribel left, I took care of a few emails and things, then showered, changed into business attire and got on the road in rush hour traffic. It was over 100 degrees today, so being out in the car was not fun.  Hot days like this make me seriously consider getting a newer car. (Please don’t let Pippy know that I said that.  She has been a faithful companion through 20 years of my escapades).

The highlight of today was the President’s Council Scholarship Dinner.  Each year 25 students are awarded scholarships established by various benefactors.  One of those scholarships was established in honor of Doc’s parents, Otto and Lois.  Doc and I have the honor of having dinner with the recipient and their family.  This year Doc was in class lecturing, so our student, Jacqueline and her family did not get to meet him.  I had a great time getting to know a little bit about the family.  Good people. Nice to see the scholarship go to them.

Mushroom Penny
On the way home from the award ceremony, I realized the gas tank was running low -- and besides, I needed a coin for today.  So I stopped for petrol.  While Pippy was being fuelled, I searched around the gas pumps for coins.  None to be found.  I completed the transaction and said, “Look Penny Angels, I really don’t want to play around tonight.  I need to get home and continue working on the Open House events.  I KNOW there must be a coin nearby.  Show it to me please.”  I put my hand on the car door handle and looked down. There was my penny!  Manifesting.

Doc had found one penny when he stopped for a burger on the way to school.  Then he found a dime between his classes by the vending machines.

Total:  3 Coins        P (2), N (0), D (1), Q (0) = $0.12

I never find coins by the Bent, until a penny today.
