Penny’s Tips Volume 28

Hi everyone! I have a great tip today just in time for your holiday baking.

You can use pennies as pie weights. My mom just learned what that is….every time she makes a crust for the chocolate cream pie, it has bubbles on the bottom. I hope she tries this.

 Sorry, I insist she give me my treats in advance.

You just put the pie crust in the bottom ( use your imagination, I didn’t have a crust for the photo).

Then you put parchment paper or aluminum foil over it and line it with pennies, then bake as usual. They will hold it down so it won’t bubble. I recommend washing the pennies first even though there is a layer protecting the crust.

Penny’s Tips Volume 27

Hi everyone! I am being difficult for mom, she wants me to pose, but I am sick of having my posts bumped.

I do have a tip for you though. You should always check for wheat pennies whenever you get change.The front is the same, but the backs have wheat stalks on the sides.  Did you know they are all worth more than 1 cent? They were made from 1909-1958. To see a chart with the value of each year, click here.

I have a 1957 one here, sorry for the bad photo.

It is worth 8 cents, I know that doesn’t sound like much, but it is worth 8 times the face value.

Before I go, I want to correct something. When mom wrote that Prancie’s Prayer is a bestseller for the publisher yesterday it just means for Mirror Publishing which is good, but nothing like a real bestseller on Amazon.  I bet if she wrote a book about me it would be a true bestseller.

Penny’s Tips Volume 25

HI everyone! I will let Penny give her tip in a minute. Today is the one year anniversary of Phoebe leaving us. We miss her every day, the house just isn’t the same without her. Her little harness dress still hangs on the hook by the door like Tiny Tim’s crutch.

I have been saving this story for today. Last year, when I kept bringing Phoebe to the vet for fluids and checkups, her vet was expecting a baby. Guess what she named her daughter? When I was there a few months ago she told me that when I kept coming in with Phoebe it struck her that should be her baby’s name.

Now time for Penny’s tip-

Hi everyone! Mom paid me in silvervine so excuse my pose, she caught me rolling in it.

My tip is if you don’t have a ruler, you can use pennies to measure. There are 16 pennies in one foot ( each one has a diameter of .75″ ).

Do you like Mom’s ruler? It is a Peanuts one that she has had since she was a kid.

Tomorrow we will be participating in Madi’s Come Laugh With Us Blog Hop.

Penny’s Tips Volume 24

Hi everyone!

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Did you miss me last week?

I have a great tip this week, but mean Mom wouldn’t listen to me when I offered it to her.

She made this lottery tree for a friend’s birthday party. She put a branch in a small glass bowl filled with sand. I suggested she fill the bowl with lucky pennies instead of sand, but she said the party had a beach theme. I think she was just too cheap to fill it with pennies.

Don’t you think my idea was better?

Before I go, I want to let  Bionic Basil’s family know we are praying for him and his family. He announced on Sunday that he doesn’t have long on this earth. We are very sad. To visit him, click here.

Penny’s Tips Volume 23

Hi everyone!  Here I am with another tip, next week, I get a vacation day because Mom is doing a Chewy review.

This tip is more for people with sticky little people to entertain, but anyone can do this. Tape some pennies ( not me) to the bottom of your shoes and tap away.

Here is a very short video of The Great One tapping away.

Penny’s Tips Volume 22

Hi everyone! Can you believe I get to post 3 whole  weeks in a row? I hope I don’t run out of tips.

This is a fun game for all ages. See who can stack the most pennies before they tip over.

Mom and Dad tried it, Mom won with 62 pennies. Can anyone top that?

And for kitties, a fun game is to try to walk past the tower of pennies without knocking them over. Millie is good at that ( see them by his back feet).

Penny’s Tips Volume 21

Hi everyone! Can you believe I get to post 2 weeks in a row? It is about time!

My tip is to use a penny as a screwdriver. See this toy bunk bed, Mom has had it since she was a kid ( I guess that makes it an antique).

 

The Great One likes to play with it. One day , Mom realized a screw was loose so instead of going down to the basement for a screwdriver, Lazy Mom just grabbed a penny to tighten it.

Pardon her man hands, unfortunately there are no funds to hire a hand model.

Penny’s Tips Volume 20

Hi everyone! Penny has a tip for you today, but first I want to thank you all for the birthday wishes yesterday. I am thankful for all of you.

Hi, did you miss me? Mom bumped me from the lineup AGAIN!

My tip is a test to see if you need new tires. You place an upside own Penny (not me) in the tread of your tire. If you can see any of President Lincoln’s head then you probably need new tires.

 I am not allowed outside so I had to depend on Mom for photos. This is the clearest  photo she got ( clearly she needs lessons in photography). I think Dad needs new tires on his truck.
