Where Did it Come From?

06 Mar

Bongo's nose checking an objectHey person, look at this. I don’t think it belongs here. What is it?

It’s all mixed in with the rocks and dirt, but I think it’s made of metal. There’s not supposed to be metal on my trails. Where do you think it came from?

Do you think somebody’s jewelry fell apart and they lost this part of it here?

Oh, I know. It was one of those pack rats. They like shiny objects, don’t they? I bet a pack rat stole it and then dropped it here because it wasn’t shiny any more. See, it’s not very shiny. I thought metal was supposed to be shiny.

Do you think I should go find that pack rat and give this back to him? After all, this is littering. He shouldn’t have dropped this here.

Maybe if you shined it up person, that pack rat would want it again? Could you shine it up, person?

You will? And you know what it is? It’s a what?

It doesn’t look anything like a penny, person. I’ve seen pennies before. My younger person always leaves them lying on the counter. They’re round, person. Don’t you know anything?

It got what? Smashed in a machine?

Imprinted penny from  Williams, AZ

Look at that, person. You shined it up and it says stuff. Hey, wait a minute. This penny says it’s from Williams. I don’t believe it! That pack rat brought this penny all the way from Williams. I’ll never be able to find him to give it back.

      Chancy and Mumsy, my person and younger person used to collect these, but they don’t have this one. It was pretty exciting finding this.

    Hmmmm….. I wonder if you could use it to buy a cookie?

      March 6, 2012 at 5:53 pm

      Rumpy, I would take a cookie over that thing any day. I’ll have to see if I can trade.

    Dimples collect those, Bongo. But she does not have that one. Consider yourself lucky!

      March 6, 2012 at 5:54 pm

      Wonderbutt’s person, my younger person has a collection of these too, from when he was about Dimple’s age. But he doesn’t have this one either.

        I hope you will present it to him, Bongo!

        Wonderbutt’s person, I think he has a slot left in his book that he can put it in.

    Elka brought me a penny once. It wasn’t a smashed one, though.

    I have a hard time resisting those “smash a penny souvenir” machines!

     
    • Bongo

      March 6, 2012 at 10:25 pm

      Jen, my person likes them too. She says it’s a great way to collect a souvenir without spending much money.

      Angels Whisper, my person says that too. A good luck penny. Woo woo!

    An oblong penny can only mean good luck!

     
    • Bongo

      March 7, 2012 at 11:23 am

      Marina, I guess because it’s oblong it must be special luck.

    Bongo, your nose looks much shinier than the metal to me!!!! Cute!!! 🙂
    Well…I never seen smashed coin in a machine…..does it change the shape after being smashed? Woof?

     
    • Bongo

      March 7, 2012 at 11:27 am

      Kevin, those smashed coin machines are popular at tourist areas here. You put in a round penny and two quarters and you get the penny back in an oblong shape with an imprint on it from the place you’re at. My younger person used to collect these.

      Collies and Chuck, it’s always fun finding unusual things on my trails. This one was tricky to find because it had dirt all over it.

    Bongo, you have your detective work cut out for you with all the mysteries on your trails. Once your person shined it, it’s a neat coin– great find, buddy!

      Thanks Deanna. I love finding unusual things on my trails and trying to solve the mystery of how they got there.

    Bongo, maybe your person can attach this to your collar so you’ll wear a treasure collection like a pirate 🙂

      Nanina, a decorated collar. I like that idea.

    Bongo, I never saw the point in pressing pennies as souvenirs. After all, once you have it what are you going to do with it? Frame it and display it? Plus, it cost more than a penny to press a penny and pennies, aka, money, doesn’t grow on trees!

     
    • Bongo

      March 7, 2012 at 9:25 pm

      Monica, at least this pressed penny didn’t cost me anything. I wonder if that pack rat had to pay for it.
