Three new things on the Penny front.
First, the current count is 1626.
Second, today in a penny contribution, I was given a nickel. I tried to return it but the contributer didn’t want it. When I saw it was from 1940, I insisted they take it back. They said “no! why do I want a dirty old penny. I would just want to throw it away”. So in addition to 129 additional pennies from this contributor (one of which was a 1955 “wheat-head”), I received a very old penny.
Third, we are playing a daily, afternoon Trivia game at work. It just started this week and before one could participate, they needed to have a nick name. While my family had nick names for me growing up (Miss Chif) and some people occasionally call me Deb, neither would work for this. Therefore, my co-workers had to come up with one for me. And so, in the game, I am Penny.
