A Decent COIN Catch This Week

It's not shark week here in Backroads. No scary music playing in this land-locked burg. But I DID manage a decent catch this week for my Future Pennyillionaire Fortune. I am NOT going to need a bigger goblet. 

MONDAY, July 25, my casino luck continued.

As I cashed out my ticket at the Horses of Helios slot, and headed to the slot on my left that has some magical bags of coins that keep growing... I spied something on the floor!

It was a face-down 1990 NICKEL, waiting just for ME! You bet I stood on my head, ample-rumpusing any by-walkers, to retrieve my rightful coin.

But wait! The lucky day wasn't over yet! I headed for town later that evening, for my scratchers. I had a great success with more winners than losers, and a good little profit. I also picked up a little something extra at Country Mart.

I guess it had been waiting for me. I was only a couple hours later than usual.

It was a heads-up 1973 penny, waiting right where I was sure to see it! Mine, all mine.

FRIDAY, July 29, I spied another treat as I was leaving the Gas Station Chicken Store. I swear it wasn't there when I walked in.

So enticing, there on the brown carpet leading to the snack cakes.

It was also a 1973 version, but this time face down. I guess old Abe didn't want some kind of funky white-hair mustache making a laughingstock of him on my blog.

That's 3 COINS this week, for 7 CENTS towards Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune!
