Three For the MONEY

Val had a better-than-mediocre week in her quest to fill her Future Pennyillionaire coffers. 
SATURDAY, May 21, I went to town to drown my broken-cell-phone sorrows with some scratchers. I started to clamber out of T-Hoe at the Backroads Casey's, and saw an uplifting sight:

I'm glad there was no busybody sitting in that van to witness my shattered phone snapping this picture.

It was a face-down 1973 penny. Still in focus with my broken-phone camera!

TUESDAY, May 24, I had to change my plans due to the Casey's over in School-Turn Town getting its weekly delivery from a semi truck parked across the storefront. I substituted a stop at Orb K. This just gave me grief due to a line-jumper. But at least Even Steven made things right when I came back out to T-Hoe.

There it is, in the dark spot running under T-Hoe. Isn't that a nice reflection in T-Hoe's dirty flank? The actual handicap spot on the other side of the blue-marked walkway? Funny how Country Mart has about eleventy-billion handicap spots, yet Orb K, and the Gas Station Chicken Store, and the Liquor Store have only one. I guess convenience is not supposed to be a thing for the handicapped.

It was a face-down 2004 NICKEL! That design on the back threw me off. At first, I hoped it was a quarter. But no. A nickel is good enough for me!
THURSDAY, May 26, I stopped by the Liquor Store on the way to mail Genius's weekly letter. I needed two scratchers to enclose. Good timing, because I found
A special surprise waiting for me.
It was a heads-up 1976 penny, messing with my phone focus. Those rugs have a habit of doing that.   _____________________________________________________________________

  1. After 45 years he came up a little short of a Pennimillionaire:

    1. Looks like I need to find the Fountain of Youth! This may take longer than I anticipated.

      Hick has the equivalent of ONE of those 5-gallon jugs. So I guess maybe he has about $1000 in pennies. He's a pennythousandaire! He saves the pennies out of his pocket every day. He doesn't go out of his way to obtain pennies.

  2. a nickel! That's five pennies worth in one pickup :)
