Val is in her counting house, counting out her Future Pennyillionaire Fortune! It has been a profitable week.
SUNDAY, July 12, dirty dirty Orb K once again came through with a penny.
Looks like the same employee responsible for sweeping is also responsible for stocking the candy in front of the counter.
It was a face-down 2014 penny. With a reflection that makes it look like it's on fire!
TUESDAY, July 14, Orb K once again shouldered the load of providing my coinage. A penny was waiting for me at the door!
Of course I risked a concussion from an opening door to stoop and pick it up. My ample rumpus might not have been seen from space, but I'm pretty sure it was seen from the parking spaces, the gas pumps, the county road, and the interstate overpass.
It was a face-down 2012, too tempting to step over. I can't believe somebody didn't snatch it before I got there!
But WAIT! Once inside, I found ANOTHER penny waiting for me at the counter!
This was resting near the still-depleted snack rack, but at least the floor had seen a cursory sweeping in the past two days.
It was a face-down 1979 penny, unable to camouflage itself on the worn-away, over-polished floor surface.
FRIDAY, not to be outdone, the Backroads Casey's had thoughtfully left THREE coins waiting for me, just beside T-Hoe as I climbed out.
It was a face-down 1995 penny, and a heads-up 1990 nickel.
The other penny was a heads-up 1980 version.
That makes 6 coins this week (five pennies and one nickel), for a total of 10 CENTS. It won't be long before I can afford a four-and-twenty-blackbird pie!
