Found 11 Cents on a Walk

Today I walked to Fry's grocery store. I went to check out the Easter candy on sale. I found some yummy ones! Lindt Lindor chocolate eggs... scrumptious!

On the way I spotted this penny on the sidewalk by a door to an insurance company. Then on the way home I found this dime in a parking spot. They are both so shiny and look like new! The dime is new (2014) but the penny is 10 years old. 

Guess it's lived a charmed life! And speaking of charmed, check out this sweet birthday cake charm!


Note:  I took the trash out and found another penny by the dumpster! That makes 12 cents today. Yay!

Found 14 Cents Today at the Grocery Store


Today I went to the grocery store and found 14 cents in the change tray! One of the pennies is an old wheat penny, a 1954 penny. The mint mark is S (San Francisco). I rarely find coins with the S mark.

I took my two grandkids to McDonald's after school and they found a ton of coins in the drive through at the first window where people pay. My granddaughter found 52 cents and my grandson 15 cents! I gave them each a quarter because I wanted one of the nickels she found. It was a 1954 just like the penny I found! What a coinky dink. 

Did you hear about Saturn's new moon? It's my namesake!
