Let’s Celebrate! 400 Consecutive Days of Penny Finding. Some pretty interesting finds these past few months. So many COINcidences.
Today I had two pennies, a dime and a quarter in hand from running errands this morning. I thought I was done for the day. At 8 p.m. Doc suggested getting a quick pizza and salad at a place just down the street. While there, the Penny Angels provided one coin --- a Nickel!
Hit for the Cycle to Celebrate Day #400. Life is Good.
Working at a big all-day event tomorrow and not likely to have a chance to go Penny Finding.Making a run to FedEx office at Midnight tonight. Hoping to find a coin after 12:01 so that it counts for tomorrow.

Finding foreign coins is much easier (and cheeper) to do right here in Southern California versus all the hassle of travelling to another country.
Walmart Super Stores claim to have almost anything a person needs. Today that held true. Doc and I were travelling the 360 miles to go see his brother for our annual visit. We stopped at Walmart – Doc for a coffee and me for coins.
We emerged with:
One United Kingdom Coin – a 5 Pence
Five Mexican Coins – two 1 Peso coins; two 50 Centavos coins; one $10 Peso coin
Two Canadian Coins – both Quarters
Nine U.S. Coins – seven Pennies; one Nickel; one 1964 Silver Quarter!
North America includes the countries of Mexico, the U.S., and Canada. Today we found coins from all three of those. Fun stuff! Plus there were an additional 12 Pennies and 2 Dimes found at other stops on our drive.
It’s a Small World After All … There’s so much that we Share …. Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide, it's a small, small world.
