Picayune: FOWC #5

I’m calling foul here Sir. Not fair play!
I mean I had no idea what a Picayune was or what it meant, and had to look it up!!
Not that my opinion has much value or is of significance.
But then again, little coins are basically all that fill my purse these days.
Still you know what they say…………
take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselves.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I need to take care of more ‘pennies’ because my ‘pounds’ seem to continue to grow and there seems no stopping them?

    But you looked it up and learned a new word, right. Keep those brain neurons firing. Tomorrow I’ll keep it simple. You won’t have to look up the word
