May 17: Found 3 pennies. First one in the parking lot of Chick's Sporting Goods in Moorpark. Next two, at the Target in Moorpark. I spent the afternoon trying to find Penn Tennis Balls with the same number to fill my ball hopper. This is the first time in 31 years of playing that I've tried to fill my ball hopper with the same ball and number. The idea is that I'll be better able to identify my balls on the courts when others are playing and will also know actually how much play the balls have had when I rotate them in a few months.
I hope I've not just become the Felix Unger of tennis.
