Penny For Your Thoughts

Pick a penny up and all day long you'll have good luck.

Goes the saying.

My mother picks up each and every penny she finds on the streets, in the mall, practically everywhere. She reasons out that it's money, so leaving it there is wasting it. Let's not waste money she says. So she picks it up.

My husband leaves it there. He reasons out that it's money that someone else might need. We don't need it too badly to pick it up. The penny would be wasted on us. So he leaves it there on the pavement, on the street, anywhere he finds it because someone else might need it.

What about you? What are your thoughts on the penny found?

Re our espresso shop on the corner of San Pablo and Solano - we had to close 3 days after our first anniversary. If I had your e-mail, I'd explain...

If no one is looking I pick it up. But if I am in a crowded place, I usually just ignore it. LOL!

«Louis» is having a technical problem with the order function on his coffee website. Send him your e-mail and he'll get the Holy Cow Blend to you - and tell you about why his espresso shop had to close.
