Easy - Week #28

Easy, like Sunday morning!

We watched CMT Crossroads last night and had the pleasure of experiencing Lionel Ritchie sing this song with Kenny Rogers!  What a treat and a most excellent show.  Throughout the song, I was grinning as I pondered between two different questions for today.  And my mind is made up.

As always, post your answer in your journal, then come back here and leave me a link in the comments.  I'll post the answers next weekend and then we'll start all over again.

Tell me...

If you dropped a penny from your pocket or purse, would you stop to pick it up, and why?

Yes, both Sam and I will pick up a penny if we dropped it.  For me, it goes back to Ben Franklin's belief of, 'A penny saved is a penny earned.'  I save all my change; as I get coins back from purchases, they go into a giant container.  Ka-ching, ka-ching.  I love that sound.  When I have enough saved, I cart it to the nearest CoinStar machine and cash it in.  It adds up pretty fast.  Last time I did, I walked out with $167, which took me maybe a year to accumulate.  Comes in handy when you need a little cash.

Never used to stop for a penny...but since hearing that pennies are gentle reminders  tossed down from angels that one of your deceased loved ones is sending you a message...I view them in an entirely different light !! Hence, the saying "Pennies from heaven" ?

I would pick it up because money is important and everyone works so hard for it, why leave it lay there if it's free lol! Me and the bf save our change and take it to the coinstar too. Last time it was around $70.

I always pick them up, whether I drop them or not.  My mom used to say, "Find a penny, pick it up - all the day you'll have good luck"  I don't know where she got it, but I claimed it for me.  And of course, it's just hard to see my namesake laying there on the ground!  Blessings, Penny http://journals.aol.com/firestormkids04/FromHeretoThere

Yes, I would. A dollar is only 99 cents without a penny more. I also have an antique glass jug where I keep the change I accumulated. http://journals.aol.com/dcmeyer420/DearDiary/

I always pickup found change, whether I dropped it or not.  It's a matter of respect for money.  It all adds up in the end.

I always pick them up. Found a dime on the floor, in the changing room at Penny's a couple weeks ago. LOL!  ~Deborah
