TWO SHINY PENNY DAYS

This is a reminder of a special "shiny penny day" in 1979. My best friend Pat came to my house and rearranged my furniture and plants to set up photo shoots of me and my children. You can tell from our faces how much fun we were having.

I got this photo yesterday from my sister on another "shiny penny day". Ron and I took a spontaneous trip to my sister's home for a lovely meal of cornbread, beans, fried potatoes, salad and homemade cookies. It is a joy to sit at their table.

Read this to learn what I shall forever call "shiny penny days".

  6. Hello Annie,

    What a lovely picture of you and your children. How happy you all look..

    Judging by the affection I note in your current posts, you are still a very happy and loving family.

    You must have done a lot of things right!

  7. WOW. Now I know what to call those good days. The ones too few, and too far away from each other. I like that title.

  13. Beautiful, shiny, smiley faces make for shiny penny days every time. That is a great photo. You are pretty as can be, and you are still a hot momma!!
    I love looking back at pics of my family and remembering many of those shiny penny days.
    Also, anytime there's a good country home cooked meal, I'm in shiny penny heaven! I've been working hard to lose a few pounds, so fried taters and beans and corn bread sound like divine foods to me right now. I might be willing to kill for it, but I will try to refrain from doing so.... that would make for a tarnished, corroded penny day.
