I'm always picking up pennies :) reminds me of picking up little bits of lego. A sort of reflex. I didn't realise it was a lucky reflex :)

I, like the view, still said...

one year, at Uni, I managed to pay my half of the electricity bill for the room I shared, with all the pennies and half-pennies and the odd "silver" coin that I had picked up on the street or in the union bar. . .

£4.81

I'd kept it all in a special jar!

(that was for the lighting - the electric bar heater had never worked, and we used to sit in the winter studying wrapped in our duvets)

WPIML tells me to never be too proud or too cocky to not pick up that penny.
So I pick them up and smile--and remember my 'size' in this world, yaknow?

I know someone else who saves all their lucky pennies in a special jar...I think it is a lovely idea!
