A PENNY and a DOH! Not Quite Dinner and a Show.

All good things must end, and this week that good thing was Val's multi-coin streak at filling the coffers of her Future Pennyillionaire Fortune.
On TUESDAY, October 12, I was over in Sis-Town on banking business, and stopped by the Casey's for scratchers. When I came out the door, a gift was waiting, just for me!
Can you see this one? If those three gum spots formed a kite, the PENNY would make up the bottom angle where the tail would be attached. The license plate numbers have been removed to protect the innocent non-coin-harvesters.  

It was a face-down 2002 penny, basking in the sun, unseen when I entered those very doors about 5 minutes earlier. Thanks, little buddy, for saving me from a shut-out this week!
Since I don't have an interesting penny-finding story this week, I'll share a short typing faux pas by The Pony. He sends me a text every night when he clocks out, so we know when to expect him home. With him working those 12-hour days, we tend to worry if we haven't heard anything. 

"Waiting for a trick to move, then parking my LLV right, and clocking out."

"A TRICK? How interesting..."
The Pony explained, once home, that he was waiting on a TRUCK, the big mail truck semi that was blocking the whole parking lot, so he couldn't put his LLV in the line with other LLVs. Good to know. I was starting to wonder if all 12 hours were always on the clock! Or what kind of neighborhood he might be delivering in!

That makes 1 COIN, for 1 CENT added to Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune this week.

  1. Maybe he subconsciously typed Trick so you could get a blog post out of it :)

    1. Maybe! I hope he wasn't subconsciously thinking about a TRICK!
