Some days are drinking your Chocolate milk through your straw glasses days
and some days are losing the penny days.
Today is one of those days.
Goodbyes must be said to such sayings as:
'find a penny pick it up all day long you'll have good luck'
'that costs a pretty penny'
'penny for your thoughts'
and 'a penny saved is a penny earned' (though I did hear that some banks are paying a penny and a half for a penny- so we'll hang on to this one for a while)
Goodbyes must be said to the 'leave a penny take a penny jars.'
It is a sad day for our children who will never be able to go to the corner store and buy penny candies. I'm going to keep a few pennies just so my kids know what they looked like....
So to my good friend the penny I say farewell.
