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 one goal was to find

comedy.After that, a penny
appeared on the floor as I was leaving the store.(Coin #2)

Phantom Plumber arrived at
5:30.I had a list of 3 tasks for
him.Those took him maybe a total
of 7-8 minutes.He was here for 45
minutes.That’s what is so great
about this project. The subs are all fantastic people and we enjoy time with
