Foreign Money

I was at the office today helping Mom break open a new roll of dimes for the petty cashbox, when out popped a surprise. In amongst all the shiny silvery dimes was a funny looking coin. It was a 1 cent coin from Singapore! Well, right away that made me think of my favorite hammie, Girl Girl, and all her stuffie adventures. Thinking of her made us so happy, we really didn't mind that we got shorted nine cents in that roll of dimes.
We dropped the Singapore coin in our little coin bank where we keep the odd ones that come through the office, like the Canadian and Australian money and occasional wheat pennies. There's not much, so we're not talking big bucks here, but My Boy likes to shake them out of the coin bank and look through them every now and then. Who knows, maybe some day he'll find a coin worth a gazillion dollars, and we can buy something cool.
I think I would spend it on a dog park, so all my doggie (and hammie) friends can come visit someday!

Hey Tell, maybe one day you will find a crugerand (that's probably not spelled right). We hear they are worth around a $1000 each! (That might not be right either, but that's what we heard). The dog park sounds like a great idea!

Aire-hugs,

Wouldn't it be good if there was a universal dog currency? Our notes could have famous (real and fictional) dogs on them like Greyfriar's Bobby and Snowy! J x
