The cold weather is here to stay...

On December 6th, I went to Tops to get a few things. At the check out I spotted a penny on the floor. It was kind of beat up, but could see the date is a 1982. Later I will be weighing the 82's to find the ones that have more copper.
December 8th, we went to Walmart as I was walking to the entrance I checked the outside soda machine coin return, in one I saw a quarter, so I grabbed it :-)
December 9th, went to Tops while there got two winning Lottery tickets. I went in the cash them in, while I walked past the Coinstar machine found a coin in the return slot (was a Canadian penny).

Hot and Muggy day for detecting...













I finally got out been awhile, went to the park at the beach the last 3 days there was a festival so I decided to go and see if I'd do good. Most of the park was still fenced off so I searched the TotLot and all away around the fence, didn't go beyond the fence will another time when everything is back to normal. Still did pretty good even thou I was dealing with leg/foot and back pain (have to get myself moving again). I found what looks like a Jade bracelet (feels like stone) the center stone has an image of a bat (found out it means Good Luck). Also, 6 religous charms/beads looks like something from a craft store, was broken so only found 6 of them.

Sundays find...May 29, 2011

Yesterday I stopped at the Dollar store for the Sunday paper, my husband said find a penny than we get it for .99 ccents. As I walked in I searched the floor, nothing. When I got up to the counter on the asprin boxes on the shelf I spotted a penny. When I went back to the car I gave my husband a thumb's up telling him I did find one, LOL!!!. Tomorrow I'm gonna try and get out with my ACE, last week hurt my ankle at first I thought I broke it (heard a loud snap), x-ray's gave me the good news it's not just pulled a tendon/soft tissue.

This morning we went to a SA Thrift store before picking up our son. They had nothing but junk at this store and everything priced to high, boken stuff on the floor had to walk around it. Anyway, my husband picked up a couple of VHS movies, while waiting for him I found a penny on the floor, so I picked it up.

Returned bottles and cans today.

Today, I went to the grocery store to return 4 bags of bottles and cans for the deposit. As I was putting in the plastic bottles the machine next to me I noticed the slip for the cash, a man was on the other side of that machine I assumed it was his because people many times work on two machines at a time. He walked away, so I grabbed it the amount was .70 cents also found another can in the return slot another .05 cents. That makes an extra .75 cents to my savings. Afterwards I stopped at the Dollar store to get some cookies and a couple of books for the projects I'm working on, when I went to check out I saw a penny on the floor so when it came to my turn I bent down to pick it up. The projects I'm working on are posted on my other Blog and web-site.

Did some Coin Shooting...

Went Coin Shooting to 2 locations, first was the park at the beach. I was gonna search the Tot Lot thats where I saw alot of kids playing there yesterday. When I got to the park I saw another person there with a detector and saw evidence that the play area was searched. So I went to a different area next to a resturant, I have been eyeing that area sent the fall. I did pretty good found $2.03 in a small area (I will search that area again). Also, found the thingy with the #2 must of been something in the center for I can see that there is a small hole on each side. The two items in the center I found a the Elementary school I went to after searching the park. When I got to the school as I was getting out of the car I saw a shiney penny on the pavement. At the school I did find some more coins, I have done pretty good here last season (found .73 cents).

Beautiful Spring Day.

It is so beautiful out today, but decided not to go detecting instead pick our son up for our Saturday visit. Before going to get him we stopped at BK's for breakfast, when I went to get hubby a coffee refill I spotted a penny on the floor (was a Canadian penny) but still a penny. Later in the day we went to the beach/park with our son, there were lots of kids playing in the Tot Lot. I think I'll hit that area tomorrow morning before the weather gets bad, should find something.

Finds for Yesterday and Today...

Yesterdays in was on 3/26/2011, went to MacD's after getting our taxes done. After I ate, went to refill my drink and under the grate at the soda machine I saw what looked like a dark disk, upon looking closer noticed that it was a penny, so I lifted the grate and took it. Todays find was at the Dollar Tree, went to get the usual Sunday paper and while waiting in line to cash out I again noticed a penny, this one was on top of a candy box on the floor level shelf. So I bent down to retrieve that penny. It's been very cold since the last snow fall, has not been out of the 20's so I have not been out to do more Coin Shooting. *********************

Got my two cents...

Today was really nice, 65 before the sun came up it is very windy. I had somethings to do today so couldn't get in some detecting time. One stop was to Rite Aid, when I got out of the car I spotted a shiney penny in the ground, so I picked it up. In the store as I was getting ready to leave I spotted another penny on the floor just under the shelf edge, so I went and picked that up also. Hey, see a penny pick it up all day long you'll have good luck, I got two in a short time so I'm seeing good luck this year.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day...

Happy St. Paddy's Day, finally the weather has gotten warmer and I was out doing a little detecting/coin shooting. Also, first day detecting last year started on St. Paddy's day, hmmm wonder if that'll be a good sign that I'll find something good :-) this year . The first day took it slow due to bad back. I went to the park at the beach and searched around in the totlot, didn't find to much but that was expected with it being a long cold winter not many people out. I heard and saw many geese heading north a beautiful sight and sound. Also, spotted several Robins with not getting out much today was the first day I saw them.

Coin Shooting/treasure hunting: coins- .17 cents; 1 dime (1995D); 7 pennies (1971D, 1975, 1996, (2)1997's, 2002, 2008).

Got My Two Cents...

This morning my husband and I did our regular thing for today, first was to get the Sunday paper. As I was getting out of the car I spotted to pennies on the cement edging of a flower bed, there is construction going on at this plaza so it was kind of a messy area. Later in the day we all stopped at the park on the beach, wish I had my ACE with me even if I did the ground was so wet and cold.

The Quiet Before the Storm...

This morning I went out for a short time to get a few things before the snow storm hits, I'm hoping that this will be the last of the snow, kind of tired of this cold and snow (every day in January it snowed, enough already). Tomorrow is ground hog day, if he sees his shadow with this lousey weather everywhere especially in Pennsylvania, I'll be not happy. I'm hoping for an early Spring. So, while I was out at the grocery store I went to check out the Coin Star machine (nothing in the mschine) but I spot a penny on the floor.

Sunday Morning...

This morning we went out for breakfast and some other errands, first stop was to get some gas from the station at the end of the block. I went to pay for the gas and found a dime on the floor just under the counter ledge.

This morning I went and did laundry, the weather is now at a decent temp so I went out. While there I went over to the snack machine to get some chips, everything in the machine is .85 cents. When I reached in to get my selection I felt another item, was a Baby Ruth candy bar (FREE!). When I was all done with the laundry and taking the baskets back out to the car I saw a penny on the ground, this Good Luck penny came after the candy *grin*...

Yes, Finding a Penny is Lucky...

Today, I found a penny in the parking lot at WalMart next to my car. I have to say that this was a Lucky Penny, afterwards I stopped at BK and got a large soda as I was getting out the money the lady said she would just charge me for a small drink. So it is a good idea to pick up those found coins...

Lucky Penny Found

As usual stopped at the Dollar Store for the Sunday paper, I spotted a penny on the floor next to the cart that has the newspapers. You got it, I picked it up with some difficulty case of the bulky winter jacket (man, I'm getting to dislike winter). I can't wait til the weather gets better so I can get out and detect or even take a walk to find coins laying on the ground, than I'll have something better to post *smiles*

A Morning Trip to the Laundry Mat

Hmm, haven't lost my touch usually find a coin or two in the machines. When everything was drying I went over to the vending machine to get a snack, also lucky here too, got a bonus nickel in my change.
