Busted ! (by Spectator Readers)

This is funny…

Seems some Spectator readers noticed that the “lucky penny” I had in my hand was a 2006 version…The reporter called me today for clarification and I referred her to my July 14 post on the “lucky charms” thread (page 4) which read as follows :

[i]…shhhhhhh…the ‘authentic’ penny was buried half an hour before that and only I know where it is…that one you see is a ‘back-up’ we had from last year but never used…so the one you see is making it’s debut tonight along with the original…(double the trouble for the Als) !

(I was scared someone would see where I buried the ‘original’ and would dig it up) :wink:

And who said Hamilton residents aren’t sharp cookies…
