Conditions in Backroads have been harsh! It's like a UFO shone down a tractor beam with more branches than a baobab tree, and sucked out all my CENTS!
I have nothing to show for my troubles this week. Nothing! Unless...
Thevictorian BirthdayPalooza triggers a rain of pennies between here and The Pony's college town. Hick and I are off to Norman for a brief visit. We'll see what develops. My dream of becoming a Future Pennyillionaire might wither on the vine, with no copper fruits to show for my labor.
GOT ONE! On WEDNESDAY, February 20, I found my long-anticipated Lincoln on the dirty, dirty floor of Orb K. He was face-down, from 1962.
Looks like somebody's going to be running out of energy! I had not even planned to go in Orb K. Haven't been there for about a week. Sadly, the Casey's parking lot had no room for T-Hoe, so I figured I could go to Orb K instead. That register wasn't even open when I walked in to look at their scratcher display. I was in the other line when they closed it to check in a delivery bill of lading, and opened this register. I was the second in line, and grabbed the penny.
I left the wrapper, though. Don't know what comes in such packaging. Maybe it was illicit drugs. Must have fallen out of somebody's pocket when he reached in for change. Oh, NO! I hope my penny isn't covered with illegal residue!
Oopsie! Found another one on THURSDAY, February 21, in STEELVILLE, MO on the way to visit The Pony in Oklahoma.
Dang it! I had a wide shot showing my toe and Hick's feet while he was paying for (NOT A DONUT) a Diet Coke at the counter. I don't know why my phone went all wonky.
In fact, I'd gotten out of A-Cad with it sitting in the console, but told Hick, "Wait! I'm getting my phone. Might find a penny." And so I did, on the way out the door.
