July Kicks Off With a Clang! The Clang of More COINS in Val's Future Pennyillionaire Coffers!

If slow and steady wins the race to become a Future Pennyillionaire, I must be winning!

Sunday, June 28, I almost missed a waiting penny at the Gas Station Chicken Store! I had stepped out and gone inside for my magical elixir without noticing! Good thing I was focusing on the running board before hoisting my ample rumpus back into the driver's seat!

Pardon T-Hoe's filthiness. He's never pristine, but we've had some rain, which translates to MUD on the gravel road. See my penny? Right there in the upside down V of sunlight!

It was a face-down 1997 penny, at the top of this sunlight pyramid.

Thursday, July 2, I spied a penny while I waited in line at the Sis-Town Casey's. Casey's is becoming almost as good for harvesting pennies as Orb K!

I had to wait for two people to move up before I could gather my partial-copper crop.

It was a face-down 2015 penny, waiting patiently for a ride in my shirt pocket.

FRIDAY, July 3, I struck it nickel-rich again at Orb K.

While I was standing at the empty register, perusing the scratcher selection, I spied this face-down 2019 specimen, and threw ample rumpus to the wind to make it my own.

I also thought I saw a dime in the crack of the sidewalk. I've been fooled before by those foil lids on 5-hour energy supplements. So I didn't try to pick it out with one of my keys. Not that I thought about it, of course... When I came out, I had half a mind to bend over and take a picture and blow it up to see if that was really a dime. But two workers were standing in front of T-Hoe, dumping the big trash can and talking about their weekend. So I didn't do that. I certainly don't want to look like a WEIRDO!

Two pennies and a nickel, which means 7 CENTS added to my coffers this week! It's been a profitable summer so far.


Penny       # 69, 70.

Nickel       # 7.
Quarter    still at 1.

Penny     134
Dime        20

  1. Seven cents is a good haul. I took a bunch of lottery draw tickets to be checked, I was pretty sure they were all losers, but I scored $49 and some cents. That will keep Lola in cat food for a couple of weeks.

    1. Forget about my seven cents! You got $49 AND SOME CENTS! Good thing you got your tickets checked!

      I had a terrible scratcher day. The Pony says I have doomed our family's luck with my big casino jackpot a couple weeks ago. As you might guess, his ticket was also a loser.
