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.

On Pause?

Hi Penny Pals-

One of the “perks” of being Seniors during the COVID-19 restrictions is that we can take advantage of Senior Shopping hours.  Except that they are so dang early in the morning!   LOL

I HATE the thought of starting over at Day #0 of Penny Finding, but it’s getting too risky to be going out each day for a coin.  Doc at his age, and with other health conditions, should be following the “Shelter at Home” edict.

I might still post Tales from the Penny Palace if interesting things happen, but it’s not wise (or lawful) to be out hunting coins right now and writing Penny Tales (Try explaining to the police: “But it was NECESSARY for me to be to be out of the house in order to Find today’s coin!”)

Would it be Ethical to put Penny Finding on “Pause” (like a video) and then continue with Day #1,001 when things are safe (and lawful) to venture out again?  Or do I need to start all over at Zero?

CELEBRATE Day #1,000

Hi Penny Pals-

Grocery Shopping with
Mandatory Facemasks
Let’s Celebrate 1,000 Days of Penny Finding!  Hopefully a number of you will take on the 1,000 Penny Challenge which I posted yesterday.  Surely sometime in the next few days YOU could meet that challenge and Gift One Person (or organization) the equivalent 1,000 pennies ($10).  Doc and I plan to do Ten for $10.

For you International Penny Pals – do the math and figure out an equivalent in your local currency.   LOL

PLEASE SHARE your story in the comment section below so that other people will read it and the JOY ripples will spread like a virus!   LOL

SPREAD JOY not Germs!

Day #999

Hi Penny Pals-

Let’s Celebrate!  Despite COVID-19, surgeries, travel trips over the past 2.7 years and numerous other hurdles, the Penny Angels have provided a coin EVERY DAY for the past 999 days!

Will you join in Celebration of Day #1,000?  We did this back in September 2011 for Day #1,000 and it was heart warming.  We also held a “Sunset Champagne Tour” of the Penny Palace that evening as the house was in framing mode.

I challenge each of you to gift or donate the equivalent of 1,000 pennies ($10) to someone.  Just mutter something such as “I am spreading JOY instead of germs”.  “Here is $10 in Celebration of 1,000 Penny Finding Days”. Or simply “Just Because I feel like sharing some JOY”.

You can do this while keeping a safe “Social Distance”.  Gift your mail carrier or delivery driver.  Gift a grocery store worker or other customer at a store.  Tape a note on a neighbor’s door.  Go on line and gift to a charity or a Go Fund Me project.  

There are so many ways YOU can SHARE JOY!
BEE Creative.

 P.S.  Today’s 6 coins (4P, N, Q) were found outdoors (safe social distance from anyone else) at two locations on the way to Doc’s medical appointment (allowable reason to leave the house).
