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.

Sassing Tom

This morning my first stop was at the UPS store to ship two packages on behalf of our Aussie guests.  When I walked in, Tom, the Owner teasingly said, “Hello. Have you found your penny today?”  I told him No - his was the first place I had visited.

I emerged from the UPS store and immediately began a conversation with the Penny Angels.  “Hey Angels.  Tom needs a dose of sassing right back.  Could you show me a coin between here and my truck?  Preferably something which will be noteworthy.” 

Within a few feet, Doc found a Quarter!  That is 25 times a penny!  I was tempted to go right back into the store, but knew that Tom would say something sassy such as “That is a quarter NOT a Penny!  I thought you do PENNY Finding?”  So I proceeded into the grocery store.

I spent maybe all of 60 seconds inside the grocery store and emerged with a handful of coins! (Someone had left them in the return of the coin counting machine).  There were:  4 Quarters, 6 Nickels, 3 Dimes and 13 Pennies.  WOWWW!!!  That qualifies as THREE hits for the cycle as well as a Coin Mine!

I hurried back to show Tom how the Angels had responded to his sassing.  We were all laughing.

Such good fun!
