Not a CENTsational Week For Val

I regret to inform you that this weekly report on Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune is bereft of pennies! I know, right? That's like finding no hot dog in your bun! No biscuits under your gravy! Only 43 oz of Diet Coke!

Don't worry. Just because I have no new pennies this week doesn't mean I can't give you pennies. And by give you pennies, I mean to view. A picture of all pennies to date. Not a loan, not a stipend, not a gift. ONLY a picture.

For comparison, I give you the fabulous penny goblet holding the to-date collection on September 1, 2017.

 Yeah. I've got more now than I did then.

Still not a full goblet, but getting closer.

I'd say it's about 1/3 full now.

Compared to just a scattering across the bottom then. I don't think I have the count back then, but right now, it stands steady from last week at

For 2018: Pennies still at # 38.
For 2018: Dimes still at  # 8.
For 2018: Nickels still at # 2.

Since 2017 (the beginning), this was Penny # 116.
Since 2017 (the beginning), this was still Dime # 14.
Since 2017 (the beginning), this was still Nickel # 2.

Not that I'm trying to make you memorize my collection. Just putting it here so I only have to look back one week to add to the total IF next week I find a penny.

Also, please forgive the forlorn appearance of Poolio. Hick just uncovered him a couple days ago, and is in the process of filling him and shocking him back to life. A process which started with the relocation of several frogs to the green fake fish pond that Jack uses as his personal swimming pool, and the removal of two frog skeletons from Poolio's bottom.

Which is saying perhaps more than I should.

    1. Heh, heh! That's the way I normally think, but not with my pennies.

  2. I love the goblet and it looks quite full in the first picture. Sad about the little froggy skeletons :(

    1. The goblet is filling up nicely, even though not recently.

      I'm wondering what was in the water (chemically or physically) to eat the flesh off those frog's legs (and other appendages).
