Another penny
goes into the piggy bank -
new bicycle.

Link with 975: Bank.

[Saving money was a challenge for many of us when we were kids. It was none of this "buy now, pay later" sort of thing. Every penny earned back then was precious and when that new bike was finally bought it was ridden with a sense of accomplishment and it was treated with great care and respect.]

I saved for books and art supplies. As a result, I still can't ride a bike today. :)

Good one.

This makes me think of my older son. Always trying to save money for something. :)
(Aurora - with all my kids, I'm a good teacher for learning how to ride a bike -- need lessons? :) )

Aurora: That's it, it was for books and art stuff...wink, wink, nudge nudge. ;-) Thanks.

Andrew: *smile* The operative word here being "trying". :-)

Floots: We are from the same era, no doubt. ;-)

John: Thanks.

Polona: We should have known. :-)
