My Lucky Penny

This is my friend Penny.
(I promised her I would 'airbrush' us both equally... so I did... LOL!)

Penny and I walk to Tim Horton's almost every morning
(sometimes in the afternoon too) for our Large Steeped Teas.


My friend Penny has been feeling very discombobulated
by the fact that in March of this year
the Canadian Government announced
  • "Canada Getting Rid of Penny to Save Costs" (the steeped tea is only $1.75!)
  • "Penny's Days Are Numbered" (numbered? she's the same age as me!)
  • "Say Good-bye to Penny" (why?  where's she going?)
  • "A Penny-less Canada" (why wouldn't we want Penny in Canada?)
and in May of this year
  • "Last Canadian Penny Made" (well...she is an original...)

I don't know about you, but I believe that:
  • A Penny is for helping wishes come true
  • A Penny is for your thoughts
  • A Penny will bring you good luck
  • Penny's are from heaven
  • A Penny saved is a Penny earned...

hmmmm... maybe that one doesn't really make sense... or cents...
(OMG I am funny...)

And look what she bought me the other day!
The cuttest little TEA towel for my kitchen!
Love it!



I know a good Penny when I see one... I think I'll keep her.

I wish everyone could be lucky enough
to have a Penny for a friend like me.

Thank you for being my friend Penny!
Hugs!

you are truly blessed to have your Penny. the photo is really good, of both of you, makes me wonder what it looked like BA...before Airbrush. LOL and they are making the same noise her in USA, taking away the penny.

Привет Пенни с наилучшими пожеланиями! Вы красавицы! Это хорошо, когда есть близкая и понимающая подруга.

Never thought all of those Penny phrases would sound so funny when applied towards a person.

Tell your Penny that she is precious, after all many pennies make millions.

And a good friend is priceless.

Really nice post! You have absolutely gorgeous hair Catherine!

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Ha-ha! You crack me up. Find a penny, pick it up and all day long you'll have good luck. Sounds like you have very lucky days indeed.

My girlfriend Melissa was in Dubai last week and said she went to a Tim Horton's -- she had never heard of it before. I told her it is like the McDonald's for Canada -- one on ever corner. :)

Happy weekend wishes, Tammy

Really?? the US has talked off and on about doing that too, but it hasn't happened yet... I like your Penny better!

Chatty Crone said...

That was funny - so say hello to her for me and goodbye! lol sandie

Linens and Royals said...

Our pennies disguised as 1 and 2 cent coins dissapeared years ago. Now there has been talk of the 5cent coin going the same way. I think Penny is a pretty name for a friend. XO

Donna said...

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Catherine,

Airbrushed or not; she's a dear friend one can tell from your writing!
Enjoy your weekend and hope you get sunshine.
Love to you,

Penny has come from heaven.It's a God's gift. Endure.
I think you need to change the color scheme on your blog. I have been searching for the words "Comments" which remained elusive, being very faint.

S. Etole said...

You certainly got more than your money's worth with your friend! Such a gift.

unikorna said...

Your post is Pennilicious :). That is a lovely dedication to your friend, allow me to salute her and observe how feminine and pretty she is. Good luck to Penny, she has a very good friend in you :).

Tamago said...

You sure have such a wonderful Penny :-)
You cracked me up with "sense... or cents..." sentence. LOL!
The tea towel is so pretty! I love it, too!

Kerri said...

What a Sweet post!
I would say you are both lucky to have each other :)

Paula said...

Catherine, you make me smile. You're the sort of person I'd love to sit next to at a wedding - you'd be a riot I'm sure... and I mean that in the best possible way xx

Linda R said...

Hugs~
