She had seen the penny there in the grass at the edge of the dirt track and had bent over to pick it up, when the dog flopped down in front of her thinking that she was going to rub his belly. No, it wasn’t a game. It was money. She got him up and then was browsing her fingers through the grass and could not find the penny. A couple of laps later when she finished her run she stopped at the site and thought to herself once more, “Maybe I can find that penny.” She bent down again and the her fingers caught the penny which had turned into a dime.
