I love this ad! Twenty percent over face value for wheat pennies is a great deal. Twenty percent! What's the face value of a wheat penny? If I'm reading what's stamped on the pennies above correctly it's one cent. You could sell those thousand wheat pennies that you've been stashing away in a jar for the past few decades and make two dollars!
One of the beds in my room at a Red Roof Inn last week was made up in this unusual fashion. I was worried I had been short-sheeted but that wasn't the case. Where does one get sheets that are three feet longer than normal sheets? Why was only one bed made like this?
Speaking of motels, agilitynut happened to recently run across the La Siesta Motel in Maple View, New York. It is a place very familiar to me. If you look at the first couple of pages of her photostream you'll see a couple of pictures soon to be seen here.
