Money (Click picture for larger view)
"A penny will hide the biggest star in the Universe if you hold it close enough to your eye." ~ Samuel Grafton
"If you give money, spend yourself with it." ~ Henry David ThoreauMoney! Money! Money! Doesn't grow on trees. The "love" of money is said to be the root of all evil. A penny saved is a penny earned. A penny isn't very much but when we were children it seemed like a fortune. That penny will burn a hole in a little girl's pocket. What can we get, or more likely, what could we get in the 50's for a penny? Ah, yes! The candy store and the rows of glass jars filled with "penny candy"; sticks of sugar candy in different flavors, peppermint sticks, licorice, candy corn, orange candy slices, M & M's, Double Bubble Bubble Gum and others. We could get a couple of pieces for a penny. In the 30's and 40's my mom said her dad would bring home a whole little bag full for a penny. Now? Good luck!
