Size Matters -- It's a Dime, Not a Penny

I found two pennies this morning then this afternoon I took a walk and found a whole bunch more coins. Here's what and where (as best as I can remember):

  • this morning, the two pennies in a parking lot
  • then on the walk, four pennies in an apartment building parking lot
  • a dime in the street
  • a penny in the street
  • another dime at a gas station
  • a penny at a car wash
  • what I thought was a penny in the street (but turns out it was a dime and the only reason I could tell was it was smaller than a penny, just as black as a very tarnished penny though, but size does matter)
  • a penny in a parking space in front of an auto parts store

Yay! That's 38 cents found today!
