Yeah. How's this pre-scheduled posting working out for Val? Seems that no sooner do I have my Saturday Pennyillionaire data all done and ready to publish...that I head to town and find some cents. Uh huh. The Universe, Karma, and Even Steven do their best to slap some cents into me. So this week, you're getting a leftover. Given to you to read about THIS week, but found LAST week, on SATURDAY, June 23rd.
That's a nickel, by cracky, that I almost stepped on coming out of The Gas Station Chicken Store, clutching my 44 oz Diet Coke and two scratchers. It wasn't there when I went in, so I had to juggle my purchases and take that picture one-handed as I left.
The closeup didn't show much. It looked like that bedazzler thingy that fooled me over at Orb K one time.
So I took a better closeup of this 2015 on the kitchen counter when I got out my magnifying glass to check the date. What an unfortunate likeness of Thomas Jefferson! It's almost as bad as my driver's license photo! I swear, ol' Thomas looked better sitting on a boot taking a crap. This nickel makes him look like...if that bad Lucy statue, and Cornelius of Planet of the Apes, had a metal baby that cut its own hair. Without a mirror.
But wait! Val is not serving you a diet of ONLY leftovers! There were fresh coins this week too!
SUNDAY, June 24th, I stopped by Orb K on my way to Walmart. Normally, I would stop on the way back, but there were no cars parked out front. While the old gal clerk was getting my tickets, I saw a DIME on the floor.
Looks like cleanliness is not next to ORBliness. I swear I didn't spill! I don't even get my magical elixir there.
This was a 2016, just begging for me to pick it up. So I did. After a photo to commemorate the occasion.
Would wonders never cease? On to Walmart I went, where I had to park on a different row than usual. But there was a reason for that, I guess, because when I came out, the rain just starting,
I rolled over a 2002 penny halfway to T-Hoe. No, that's not a coin under the cart itself. Only blue gum. I felt a little deja vu from my too-close encounter with that at Casey's the other day.
I now provide the closeup, to prove that this penny, along with his silver brethren above, was FACE DOWN. It seems to be a trend. And while you're dwelling on that, you're not dwelling on my BUNS, which you can see in the child seat of my cart in the previous picture.
MONDAY, June 25th, I made a detour to Country Mart to get some scratchers. They turned out to be losers, but I DID score a penny.
This 1999 was face up, finally!
Poor Old Abe had a dirty face, but I guess that's what happens when you party like it's 1999, and wake up on the floor of a grocery store at 11:51 a.m. Monday morning.
There you go, a pre-packaged Pennyillionaire post, so I can spend the afternoon and evening at a casino. What are the odds that I might even find a penny there...
