If You Drop It, Val Will COIN

Carelessness is next to Val-wish-ness! So many people losing track of their coins this year!

SUNDAY, January 15, I was leaving the School-Turn Casey's when I saw a magnificent sight!

Heh, heh! All those sunglasses are watching it for me! My THIRD dime of 2023!

It was a face-down 2012 dime, patiently awaiting harvest.

TUESDAY, January 17, I stopped by the Sis-Town Casey's after dropping off The Pony's new auto insurance card. I was meant to be there that day and time!

Right in my path, hiding in plain sight from the unenlightened...

It was a heads-up 1995 penny, totally ignored by those dudes ahead of me.

WEDNESDAY, January 18, I had to wait in line for the Country Mart lottery machine. While standing a respectful distance, I watched another customer getting trinkets out of the kid machines. My mind wandered, but after my lottery machine turn, I saw...

A penny awaiting my pocket! I don't know if that guy dropped it, or if he was kneeling on it and I didn't see it at first.

It was a face-down 2012 penny. I can bookend this week's finds by coin or by date!

That's 3 COINS this week, for 12 CENTS towards Val's Future Pennyillionaire Fortune!

  1. I hope this good start continues right up until December 31st.

  2. Girl you are rolling faster than the coins you are collecting. Dimes now? WOW!

  3. When my Jeff was a skinny little boy, he would always check pay phones and usually was rewarded with some coins. I f Ilost track of him while in the grocery, I could always find him near the soda machines. Usually lying on his belly and sweeping his arm under the machines. This was back in the 80's when a quarter was a big deal to a kid! Not that I am suggested you lie down on the floor ......

    1. I hope not! I would never get back up. Then again, maybe coins would rain down upon me.

      If I lost track of my boys, I could find The Pony hiding in the middle of a round clothing rack, and Genius bothering the minimum-wage workers of the electronics department, asking when they expected to get new hard drives.
