Weirdo Val Gets Her ComeupPENCE

SUNDAY, July 26, I made the mistake of going in the Gas Station Chicken Store without my phone. Of course when I came out, I spied a penny just outside the door. If a car had been parked there getting gas, I wouldn't have seen it.

I caught a snapshot back in T-Hoe, on top of The Pony's scratcher. LOSER. It was a heads-up 2019 that made Abe look much older than his year.

THURSDAY, on my gas-buying errand over at the Sis-Town Casey's, I was not disappointed.

As I was passing time on the social distancing dot, something snagged my eye over by the newspaper rack.

It was a heads-up 2016 penny hiding just far enough away to lure my ample rumpus out of line. For all I know, it was left over from last week when that dude cashed in a bag of pennies.

FRIDAY, July 31, I made the mistake of going in the [whisper] liquor store without my phone. Of course there was a penny waiting for me right there at the end of the aisle by the counter.

I got a picture in T-Hoe, on top of my scratcher. LOSER. The only place I can find this ticket these days is at the [whisper] liquor store. The penny was a face-down 1988.

At my next stop, the Gas Station Chicken Store, I parked out by the FREE (with gas purchase only) AIR hose. When I came back out, a gift was waiting for me!

It was a 1996 penny, heads-up and all pretty on the white tire-bumper thingy.

Seriously. I never park over there.  I guess it was meant to be this day.

From there, I headed to Country Mart. Again, I parked in a spot I haven't parked before. Wouldn't you know it? I stepped out to see a PENNY between the cars next to me!

There it is, in the oil slick by the front bumper. A lady was putting her groceries in the white car. She looked at me like I was crazy. Somewhere, there's a blog post about an ample-rumpused weirdo trying to engage her in conversation, while picking up a filthy penny!

It was a face-down 2016 penny. All mine. A trifecta for Friday.

So that's 5 PENNIES this week, for a total of 5 CENTS.

  1. Your penny fairy godmother was watching over you!!

    1. Yes! Giving my ample rumpus some exercise!

  2. I wonder if your loser scratchers had anything to do with my dream. Three days ago I had a dream full of weird happenings and one of them was me scratching off a couple of tickets. Maybe Even Steven was telling me to buy some because it was my turn to win? I didn't buy any though. That's a goodly haul of pennies.

    1. The Pony has been having winning dreams, but is on a losing streak. So maybe it's best that you didn't buy a ticket! I was worried about the pennies as the week went on, but Even Steven didn't let me down.

  3. I was talking about you to a camper just the other day! She was trying to tell me that the coin shortage was due to a Democrat conspiracy and i informed her that it was due to my friend collecting all the coins she found!!

    1. Heh, heh! I DO have several years worth of coins in my Future Pennyillionaire collection!
