smooshed pennies

The last two trips to the zoo has been with a single mission in mind for Bee... the smooshed penny machine. Our favorite one is by the manatees. This past trip, I noticed that there was a website for collectors. Oh my... upon further research, I found there is an underground cult following of smooshed penny people. They prefer to be called, elongated coin collectors, it's more politically correct you know. Go visit them at the Penny Collector web site if you doubt me- they are a serious bunch over there! She was pretty excited when I showed her how the site lists the locations (and lots of pictures) of all the penny machines world wide. Oh good grief, another collection, that's the last thing Bee needs.
