Imagine taking a journey to many places throughout our country either in the palm of another person’s hand, in the pocket of a shirt or jacket or just placed gently in the change compartment of a wallet or car. Imagine traveling free of charge along with the person that happens to have you in their possession and enjoying the fresh air, hoping not to be trampled on by feet, enjoying the ride and the company, learning about each person whose possession you find yourself in as you take readers and yourself on a wild, fun and crazy journey. Penny is the main character of this book. A penny in this case is a rare and special one-cent piece that gets handed from person to person, some famous, notorious, saints, drunk, bikers, ordinary people and even some who go to church. I bet you don’t know that the last penny that is the last one comprised of 95 percent copper and the final one ever minted was born on October 22, 1982. After that the sad fact is that these precious one=cent pieces are now comprised of 97.5 percent zinc with only a small touch of copper thrown in. SAD! So after reading the story of this famous penny and joining him on his journey through many places, streets, sidewalks, cars, bars and more, readers like myself might look down when walking and if I see or you see a penny on the ground you might want to rescue it and place it in a safe place. Peter Davidson will take the spotlight and share his humorous stories with your host Fran Lewis
