Split Penny

Yesterday’s picture is that of a penny lying along the edge of HW 13. I was riding my bicycle, looking down at the road when I saw that shiny copper penny. What was interesting is how it was split in half. I’ve never seen anything like it! And the second half was about 10 inches away. What do you think happened?

Today’s picture is of a clump of Broom Sedge. If you’ve spent any time driving around the Midwest in the fall or winter, you’ve seen it thousands of times. It is what gives a field that rusty-orange color. It is beautiful en masse and also as an individual.

Tomorrow Barack Obama will become our new president. It is a change that I have been looking forward to for several months. I wish him all the best. Much love, peace, and wisdom to you Mr. Obama!

  1. Well, the penny has Mr. Lincoln on it, and it's split kind of like Obama's logo, and a penny is "change." OMG!!
