I guess it’s just a cowinky-dink McDonalds had the new “lucky penny” commercial durning the Oscars tonight.
I always pick up pennys…they are suposed to be lucky if the head is up…who knows…When I found them I’d throw them in the back of my truck bed, I used to have…One day someone stole all the pennys when I went into the store, there were maybe 15 at the most…There are some real freaks out there in the real world…
What are we gonna do when they don’t make pennies anymore?
Like I have said I will be 67 next month so quit following me or else I will have a restraing order out on you. But it is great to look at myself good job
And luckier still when they can stand back up.
I picked up one yesterday. Someone (50-ish) claimed “kids today wouldn’t even pick one up.” I informed him that those of his generation didn’t either. Being a “Depression Baby”, I do.
Someone told me he always picked them up because God’sname was on them and It wasn’t good to leave them in the dirt.
When I was in PT for my bad back, I was continually asked, “on a scale of 1 – 10, how much does it hurt?”I would reply that if I dropped something worth less than $20, I wouldn’t even attempt to pick it up. They got the message.
That is pre- 1982 pennies. They are NOT copper any more. If you want copper, nickles are 75% copper.
I still pick them up. Usually at the 7-11. Found a dime the other day at Wendy’s.

Total found in forty years= $5.75.
The old Sarge
I was walking through a hardware store about a year ago, and there, right in front of the bolts and screws in the middle of the aisle was a fifty dollar bill. Being the honest Plugger that I am, I knew someone would be looking for it. When I couldn’t find the “loser” I turned it in at Customer Service. They said they would put it in a safe box for 30 days, but my guess is, the two of them probably went out for drinks and dinner after work.
Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you will have a penny.And a sore back.
Yep.. I pick them up. bend at the hip and use one leg as a counterweight, Keep one hand on my walking stick.
you never know. you MIGHT find one that is worth a few hundred dollars. depending on age, condition, where it was minted.
