Penny’s Tips Volume 2

Hi everyone! Before I give you my tip of the week, I want to wish my folks a Happy 25th Anniversary!

Now it is time for my tip. As you know, my folks went to Maine last Tuesday to meet Teddy’s wonderful folks. All they brought back for me was a penny. A flattened one at that.

Β  It says Kittery on it and has a duck stamped on it. A lot of tourist places have machines that you put 50 cents in and a penny then you turn a crank and it turns the penny into a little souvenir. My tip is to look for one when you are traveling that way you only spend 50 cents on a souvenir and it won’t even take up much space.

One more thing–yesterday, Joanie told you about the movie mom was in and some of you commented on planning to watch it. Thank you, we appreciate that, but do want to warn you there is some bad language and the start may have something that turns you off of the entire movie, but please stay with it. Mom is the comedy relief and quite proud of her small performance including rolling off the bed πŸ™‚

I am off to go play with our new Halloween scratcher that arrived today . We won it from Summer-thank you! I hope I can make Brody get out of it. We will show more photos of it on Thursday along with the other fun toys Summer sent us too.



    1. We are working on a time share agreement, but Brody thinks he deserves more time than the rest of us πŸ™‚

  1. Happy 25th Anniversary to your folks, Penny, hope they have a wonderful day πŸ™‚ That’s a nice penny. Grandpaw always makes them too, when there’s a machine to make it, but we only have castles and churches πŸ˜€ That’s a nice scratcher house. I hope it’s not to spooky in there πŸ˜€ Pawkisses for a Happy Day πŸ™‚ <3

  2. Happy Anniversary to your Pawrents, Penny!
    That is a wonderful milestone to be able to celebrate together.

    Hey, we have seen lots of those penny flattening machines…now I think I shall have to use one next time I do spot one!

    Concats on winning that spooky house! Looks like Brody didn’t think it was too spooky,MOL! Hope he will let you have a time in there too.

  3. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO YOUR MOM AND DAD! My Mom was with your Mom when she did your penny for you… machine – Mom had never seen that before. Looks like your Halloween scratcher is a BIG HIT. What a fun place to hide. Brody looks like he’s right at home……tee hee.

    Hugs, Teddy

    1. My folks thank you. And I thank you , if you hadn’t given mom a quarter, she wouldn’t have made this.
      We love the scratcher, Brody monopolizes it, but we have all tried it πŸ™‚ XO

  4. So glad all of you won that scratcher.. What fun for you. And that penny looks like a great keepsake. And a very Happy Anniversary to you Mom and Dad. You all have a wonderful day.

  5. Congrats to Mom & Dad on another year of togetherness! That’s wonderful, wonderful mews and I know you and your siblings are happy for them. How thoughtful they brought you back a souvenir. Do y’all live close to Maine? I can’t remember. Maybe I have furballs in my brain or maybe I just need another cup of coffee. Don’t worry, I’ll have a spot of milk in mine. Oh, you said to hold the coffee and you’ll take a spot of milk. Ok, I can do that. Anywho, your folks went to Kittery. We passed through there years ago. Our youngest daughter and her husband are fixing to move to Portland in less than 2-weeks. I’m going to miss her like crazy. I feel like a piece of my heart is leaving. πŸ™ Alright, yesterday I visited and I read that about your mom’s part in a movie and I think it just didn’t register but…WOW how cool is that?! That’s just neat. Have an awesome day!

    1. Thank you. We are 2 and a half hours from Kittery, we are in western Mass. I know you are nervous for your daughter, I hope she can get a job there.

  6. Happy 25th Anniversary! Hope you have a wonderful day.

    Brody is too funny… he has taken possession of the scratcher! Your Mom is the comedy relief in the movie… she does have a great sense of funny. That penny is a great memory keeper!

  7. Happy happy 25th Anniversary to your peeps and the scratcher looks so pawesome, we’re trying to find one here!

  8. My children always loved the penny cranks. You are right that those can make for some inexpensive souvenirs.

    Have fun with your new scratcher!

  9. Oh, this here human loves getting smashed pennies whenever somewhere that has one of those fun machines. Even more so, we love your haunted house scratcher! That is the purrfect toy for Halloween. Purrs! (P.S. Happy anniversary to Mom Ellen and Dad David!)

    1. My folks thank you. We are lucky to win this Halloween scratcher, but mean mom is only letting us use it for the season and then putting it away.

    1. Thank you in advance for watching it, if you survived the other, this will actually be a step up πŸ™‚

  16. Mommy got a penny like that at Pikes Market in Seattle! But hers had a cat on it. Your scratcher house is coolio. Mommy thought about getting me one when she went to the States, but they were sold out!
