Lucky Penny

Yesterday's wish for a lucky penny was granted. At the farmers market, looking at the corn and beans and Thai eggplant, I watched a penny miss a woman's wallet and land on the sidewalk right in front of a bakery booth. I knew it was my lucky penny, so I waited for a few pairs of shoes to trod over it and then swooped in for the pick up. I am now in posession of a 1982, undoubtedly lucky, penny.

Sometimes I really love the "words" that come up to verify comments. Here's a gem I got today--byyja. So, creative ones, feel free to leave a definition of the word byyja in comments.

Whenever I find a penny, I first check the year to see if it has any significance in my life. If it was a "good" year, I think it's an even LUCKIER penny.

Byyja: a temporary, hand-built canoe-like boat hastily constructed of sticks, leaves, and clay, and useable for one trip only before disintegration; most often used by peoples of South America and stemming from the native words "byy" meaning "float" and "ja" meaning "man."
