Penny’s Tips Volume 33

Hi everyone! Did you miss me? Happy Chinese New Year! It is the year of the pig.

  Do you know what you are? My mom is a rooster. If you don’t know what you are, click here.

Did you know that pennies in Bermuda used to have pigs on the back? My  mom has some old ones, she as never been to Bermuda, but someone her Gramma knew gave them to her when she was a kid ( a long time ago).

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.


  1. Happy Chinese New Year, Penny? We like the pennies with miss piggy on it, very nice 😀 I’m a horse and Granny is a dog, I was hoping I was a cat as I look like one?Pawkisses for a magical Year of the Pig???

  2. My human didn’t know about the pigs on Bermuda pennies! Me? I think there should be cats on the FRONT (we’d never settle for the back).

  3. We didn’t know about Bermuda’s pennies either! My Mom and Dad have been there but didn’t notice that…..but then they didn’t notice much of anything other than how beautiful it was there, how pink the sand was and how delicious the sun felt! Oh and Mom found out what a “rum swizzle” was – whatever THAT is!

    Hugs, Teddy

  4. Oooh I’m a dragon! Laser is a monkey and McLaren is a Rooster. That checks out – Laser causes trouble and blames it on McLaren and McLaren always meows a lot in the morning!

  5. I didn’t know pennies in Bermuda had pigs on the back. Cool. I learn something new every single day.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday and Chinese New Year. ♥

  6. Yes, missed you Penny! I am a Rabbit. I have never been to Bermuda and did not know about the pig pennies! Have to ask Teddy’s Mom about the rum swizzle.. Ha! Thank you Penny for today’s tip and the link where I found out I was a rabbit.

  7. We do think the years we were born do show some of our traits. Pigs are seen as lucky and signs of wealth for a lot of people.The Germans have Glueckschweine (lucky pigs) at New Years and often show them with money. Happy Chinese New Year.

  8. Why is there a year of the dog but not a year of the cat? I guess a tiger is close enough. I am a rabbit and my wife is a rat. Since we live with cats that’s probably not good. 🙂

  9. Well it says:
    You are a: Rat
    Lucky numbers: 2, 3
    Lucky colors: blue, gold, green

    If I made the list it would ready:
    you are a : Cat
    Lucky number: 7
    Lucky color : red and purple and lavender

    Hugs Cecilia

  10. Happy Chinese New Year. I just checked and I got the dog. Great learning about the Bermuda penny having a pig on the back. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful rest of your week.

  11. Our human sister-in-law is from Taiwan so she makes sure we all know what we are. Lightning’s year is the rabbit, Misty’s is the monkey, and Timber’s is the rooster. Mom says they suit us well because Lightning is the rabbit hunter, Misty is mischievous like a monkey, and Timber is always howling away, his version of the rooster’s crowing:)

    Woos – Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  13. Hello and happy Chinese New Year, Penny! Your pig pennies are really neat. I have always been intrigued by various forms of currency, but I had no idea about these. Oh, and it would seem that I’m a snake, which freaks me out just a tad bit. Warm wishes!

  14. I am an ox, Samantha is a horse, and Luke is a snake. My hubby is a monkey. We’ve got quite the zoo here!! LOL
