My daughters have been in a couple of bands, made up of talented young people who just love to play and perform. It's been fun to see them perform (mostly for youth groups) and grow in their skills. I could listen to those girls sing all day long and never get tired of it.
I remember several discussions of band names and how all the good ones are all taken.
"Just Google any name you think is cool and you'll see it's already gone!" they would say. Their bands had names like Morning Side Drive and Rayleen, chosen mostly for their availability.
I always insisted that the best band name was as close as their pockets.
I don't understand why they always rolled their eyes at me when I suggested it. C'mon, people! Don't you get it??
It sums up what every band is about....but I was always alone in my love of that band name.
Well, loose change is what I found in every. single. drawer I opened in search of my missing ipod while getting ready for this trip to Big Spring. My goodness! Imagine if we actually used cash instead of checks and debit cards all the time....we'd have MOUNTAINS of loose change.
Today's Small Thing is to gather up loose change around the house. You might find that coinage is lurking under sofa cushions, in jelly jars, on dresser tops, inside socks (yes, someone at our house has a sock "purse" for change), and in the cup holder in your car. In this economy, you never know when you will need every last penny to buy a gallon of gas or a loaf of bread.
I'm going to take my change to one of those machines that you dump it all in and for a little fee you get actual dollars back. I don't even want to guess the amount, but I'm thinking it might pay for a small car. I could use one of those.
