MONDAY, August 24, this treat was waiting for me inside the Backroads Casey's.
There was a bit of controversy about its harvest.
I was able to nab it, though. A face-down 1978 penny, exposing his coppery rumpus. For my trouble, I was accosted by the masked manager in the back-room office calling out, "Is there a PROBLEM with the gum rack?"
Nope. It provides perfect cover for waiting pennies until I arrive to scoop them up! I insolently pocketed that copper while meeting her above-mask gaze. Nobody sucks the joy out of a Val penny-find! Once outside, safe in T-Hoe, I sighed with relief that she hadn't run out and squeezed my wrist to make me drop it.
FRIDAY, August 28, I stopped by the School-Turn Casey's while out and about with The Pony, picking up pizza for our lupper. That meal which combines lunch and supper. As I stepped out of T-Hoe, I said, "I'd better take my phone, in case I find a penny!"
It was a filthy specimen, a crusty, face-down 2014. But all pennies are welcome in Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune. This one required a sink shower before being allowed to join the collection.
Only 2 PENNIES, for 2 CENTS this week, but I am happy to have them!
