Val is Back in the PENNY Business!

It's been a difficult 2022 for Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune! I've got a lot of ground to make up to be competitive with my previous years' collections.

I took sick on Jan 22. It was a dismal day anyway, what with a shut-out on pennies for the week. Since then, I haven't been to town seeking my FPF (Future Pennyillionaire Fortune) until the past couple weeks. With NOTHING to show for it! But now...

Of course it took illness to reunite me with a single penny. I went to Convenient Care on TUESDAY, Feb 22, over a bright pink hive-y rash around each of the 6 shots of Lovenox I got in my belly during my Unfortunate HospitVALzation. Hick drove me to my pharmacy across the street, and when I came out, I saw

A beautiful PENNY meant just for ME! It may not look so beautiful to you, but it was a precious jewel to me, after such a long drought in the penny-finding. I never would have seen it if I hadn't been there to pick up the meds prescribed by Convenient Care.

This filthy fellow needed a vinegar bath once I got him home, to discover that he came from 2011. He was heads-up, though I couldn't tell it when I harvested him.

That's 1 COIN this week, for 1 CENT towards Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune.

  1. You are back to your get rich slowly scheme? Yay!

    1. This break is gonna set me back! I think somebody else has taken my place. Of course, the pavement HAS been covered by sleet for the past few days. Maybe I can find something after the thaw.

  2. I don't often pick up coins that are so worn down, they need to be in a decent condition for me, because I don't save them, I use them and some shops don't like to take the really ugly ones.

    1. This one was fine after the vinegar bath. It was only corroded, not worn down. The Gas Station Chicken Store won't take dirty money! I have to pass off my spending pennies at Dairy Queen or Hardee's. They don't mind at all. They need change.

  3. That is a penny that only a Future Pennyillionaire could love!
