To say that Penny Finding has been affected by the pandemic is an understatement.
· There are Stay at Home edicts, so Doc and I have not been going out as much.
· Other people are staying home, so there aren’t as many wayward coins
· People are using plastic instead of coins for their purchases
· There is a national coin shortage
This evening (New Year's Eve) Doc and I went to the grocery store for a few items. I was not EVEN thinking of Penny Finding. As we were checking out, I spotted a dime, then a nickel. Then Doc spotted a dime. Uggg … A sudden case of Penny Fever hit us. It came on so totally unexpected!
Doc and I noticed the coffee shop had closed early for the night. That left the drive up window vacant… Score! There was a quarter there! So now we had nickel, dime (2) and quarter. That makes three of the coins needed for a Hit for the Cycle.
Doc and I hopped in the car and began driving home. Then we realized Doc still needed more steps to reach his 12,000 goal for the day. Tina: “Doc, park the car. Let’s do your steps here in the parking lot.” We walked and walked, but found no pennies. So I got a bit sassy with the Penny Angels.
Hi there Angels! It’s been a while since we have played together. It is generous of you to provide four silver coins tonight, but this is PENNY Tales, so I am requesting a PENNY Please. So far we have 3 of the 4 coins needed for a Hit for the Cycle (HFC). The last HFC was way back in September! It would make for a great conclusion to 2020 to complete a HFC. Please consider my request”. Within moments there was a Penny in my path. COINcidence?
