52 THINGS: Don't Take Any Wooden Nickels

This is perhaps the tiniest journal I'll ever make in this 52 THINGS series. It has to do with an oft repeated phrase. If we were going out the door to pick up something at the store, my Dad would always say "Don't take any wooden nickels."

Perhaps that meant about the same thing as "Watch your pennies!"

Imagine my surprise when an eBay notification came for my query "Conrad Weiser" that was a modern-day wooden nickel. I just had to get it not only to honor my dad's wise counsel, but for the quirky connection to my French and Indian War colonel.
