SUNDAY, July 5, a penny was obviously left just for ME, at Orb K. I had seen nothing on the way inside. Nothing around the scratcher display, or the register, while waiting my turn behind a lone fellow customer. When I started out, there it was!
I suppose that customer had dropped it. I surely would have noticed if it was there on my way in. I'm not a penny-finding novice, you know!
It was a shiny, heads-up 2020, waiting to join my collection.
WEDNESDAY, July 8, we stopped by the Backroads Casey's on our way home from the casino. As I climbed out of A-Cad, I told The Pony,
"I'd better not find a penny! I'm not taking in my phone."
So of course you know what happened! One step inside the door, there it was! And me without a camera. I picked it up anyway. It was so dirty that I couldn't tell if it was heads up or face down. In fact, I had to wash it off (mostly unsuccessfully) to see that it was a 2014.
That's 3 coins this week, for 3 cents. You can't hit the jackpot every week...
2020 RUNNING TOTAL
Penny # 71, 72, 73.
Dime still at 13.
Nickel still at 7.
Quarter still at 1.
I used to buy the crossword scratchers, thinking they'd be lucky, because I love crosswords, but they never were lucky. I don't remember which ones I used last year when I had that lucky streak, always winning just enough to get another ticket or two.ReplyDelete
The Pony likes them because they take a long time to play. Which is why I STOPPED playing them! There's a $5 version, and a $3 version. The Pony has won on both. Better luck on the $3 tickets, winning $6.Delete
I'll have a picture of a loser tomorrow.
Have you counted your FOUND money or do you spend it?ReplyDelete
I have the running total for my count. I don't spend it. My Future Pennyillionaire Fortune sits in a goblet that Hick bought me at a yard sale.Delete
