Pennywise, pound foolish?
A penny saved is a penny earned
Worth every penny.
Today the penny starts it's journey to being the new record/rotary phone/typewriters.
It will forever have a place in our culture, as vinyl records do in speech, and the old phones do in clipart and computer icons.
Kind of weird to think that in a few years the kids will have no idea how heavy these things were to carry around.
Even the googledoodle is commemorating this day.
I have a coffee can full of pennies on the fridge, I will just leave them there. It's a wonderful weighty thing....
But the best tribute of all, to the much maligned penny will live on in worn cliches.
Like a bad penny, they will always turn up!
