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.
Friend Kathy volunteered to help me
for a few hours this morning.We
cleaned the mailbox and put up a new display, painted the trash boxes, took up
the Ramboard from the Aussie floor and more.
New Mailbox Display
Kathy left at noon because I had the “Stuff” to tackle and
no one else can really do that.So
for the rest of the day I worked on organizing “stuff”.And there were a few other things like
finding staffing for the check-in table, speaking with the photographer,
dealing with an overlooked invitation or ones which had been returned from the
post office, etc.
The rental tables and chairs
arrived this morning.That was a
relief since when I called earlier this week to confirm my order, they had it
scheduled for delivery on the 14th versus 4th!

Doc arrived home at 8:30 p.m. and
asked me about a coin for today?Oops!I was focused on the
house.We hopped in the van and
headed out.The first stop was at
a CVS store to get some picture hangers.None of the kind we needed, but two pennies by the pharmacy counter.
Nice!(Coins #1 & 2)
We dashed to the Home Depot store
arriving, there at 8:55 p.m.Found
the picture hangers we were seeking.Upon exiting the store, a large white car pulled up. I thought the
driver was a stranger asking Doc for directions.It was our son Stephen!So Doc hopped in Steve’s car and hitchhiked to Starbucks.
I found a penny as I walked alone
back to our car.(Coin #3).Everyone knows coins can not be found
in the dark!Dog Sparky was in the
back seat of the van asking “Where is my Papa?”
I went to the grocery store for
punch ingredients.No coins
there!Doc found a penny on his
coffee run. (Coin #4)
11:45 p.m.Doc and I reviewed the Open House video
which student Kevin brought to school this afternoon.We are trying to display it on Doc’s big screen TV.No luck on the first attempt.Doc has some ideas to try tomorrow. …
We have only 31 hours until Show Time!
