Penny’s Tips Volume 44

Hi everyone! I wasn’t going to do a post today because I am still mad that I got bumped last week for the sock post. And that she didn’t have socks made with ME on them. But, I don’t want to disappoint my loyal fans.

My tip today is a game. You will need several pennies ( at least 10) with different dates on them. And you will need 2 of each date. Then you flip them all over so their tails are up. The first person to play will flip over 2 to see if they match, if not, you flip them back over and the next player does the same. If you get a match, you get to keep them and take another turn. Keep playing until all the pennies are matched. The winner is the one with the most pennies at the end.

This would be fun for older kids. It is also good for adults to keep those brain cells working.

Hi everyone! My post is being bumped today for a review of custom socks.

And they don’t even have me on them!

*Disclosure-we received a pair of custom made socks from Socksery in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are our own.

They have Prancie on them because she is Dad’s little princess. Mom doesn’t wear socks often because she has hot flashes. Dad always wears socks though so she thought he would like them- and he does.

They are really well made and reasonable priced for a custom gift. And you can get any photo on them in a variety of color choices. To visit Socksery’s website, click here.

And they have a code on the website to save 10%.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Before we get started, we want to give POTP to Sawyer of The Kitties Blue. Teddy’s mom made this nice badge for him. He needs a lot of purrs and prayers as he has seizures quite often and meds don’t seem to prevent them.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

Rene (It’s All About the Cats) told me about a new book, Bailey No Ordinary Cat by Erin Merryn.  I am so glad she did. It is a small book filled with photos of the author and her 3 little girls with Bailey. I always think Joanie is so good with The Great One and she is, but Bailey was even more patient. In one photo he is being fed with a spoon while sitting in a high chair. You can check out a lot of his photos on his Instagram page, click here.  Even my hubby enjoyed the photos and was amazed at Bailey’s patience. Sadly, Bailey passed away a few months before the book came out, but he can live on through these adorable photos. I am sure each one will make you say awwww…..

This is a different Bailey than Bailey the Boat Cat, he also has a book.
