#38 Penny Hike
A Penny Hike With Marsha
If Marsha and I had been little kids together in the fifties, we might have gone on a Penny Hike. We aren't kids and I don't think kids do Penny Hikes anymore... but Marsha and I both have childhood memories of wandering with friends, using the toss of a coin on every corner to determine the route. I was thrilled that Marsha was up for trying the old activity.
Our penny took us into neighborhoods we've never explored and it even wound us in circles a couple times. We were jabbering so much we hardly noticed. Then I tossed the penny right into the grass and lost it. (We had to create new rules with a stick toss.) Our hike lasted nearly 90 minutes. Thanks, Marsha! What a great way to enjoy the beautiful weather, some exercise and good conversation!

57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
