• every time it rains it rains pennies from heaven

    From Maurice Kinal@2:280/464.113 to Nancy Backus on Mon Mar 16 16:54:26 2020
    Hallo Nancy!

    3000 pennies, 600 nickels, 300 dimes.... depends on how many one
    has available to save along the way.... ;) Or maybe it's twice
    that, nowadays.... ;)

    Closer to three times methinks or at least locally it is.

    That may be.... they keep threatening to get rid of pennies over
    here, but so far it hasn't happened...

    It happened years and years ago here. I still have some in a metal cup stashed
    away somewhere. I am not sure why.

    I still carry and use them... :)

    You can keep them. ;-)

    Het leven is goed,
    Maurice

    I trust you are well, and not affected much by the coronavirus...? We
    are fine here, but there are lots of restrictions and closings to try to
    stem the spread of the virus....

    $90...? They run about $60 or so here.... I remember when one could
    get a good single malt for $30, though...

    Nostalgia, no doubt... ;)

    Prices don't get rounded here... lots of times you'd get pennies in
    change... unless you have some in the wallet/pocket to turn in to avoid that.... ;)
