Here at our house we save all our quarters for Little Bear, the gentle guardian of the bank on top of the dresser.
It’s no ordinary bank. Made from solid oak with an old-fashioned mail box door protecting the coins, it was hand-crafted by my father. Dad has made many over the years – mostly as wedding gifts or to welcome a new baby.
I don’t remember when or even why we decided only quarters go in our bank. But two bits here and $0.25 there adds up after awhile.
By the looks of it, it’s time to take it to a rather traditional banking establishment. We’ll let them use their coin counting machine to calculate the total. But having done it before, I know Little Bear is sitting on a nice little deposit.
So, should we spend it on a weekend trip? More books? Or a shopping spree at a quilt/fabric store?
