Here is our "lucky" penny! Rachel received this penny from an older customer who appreciated her demo. As he handed a 1994 penny to Rachel, he explained that "1994 was a lucky year for him" because "a special planetary alignment occurred." A little internet research revealed that on January 12, 1994, there was a rare seven-planet alignment in Capricorn (five planets and the sun and moon). It was the tightest alignment of seven planets in 300 years. Rachel used Eugenia's 3-hole punch to punch a hole in the penny so she could dangle it from a necklace. We all know that this would have been a tough job for many other hole punches! I don't know about you guys, but I'm stickin' with Rachel, who has the lucky penny.
Not to be outdone, mother and daughter made a wager that Eugenia's hole punch couldn't pierce fabric to make a hole! Mother thought that the fabric would just push through the opening. Ah-ha! Mother was wrong, daughter was right! Unfortunately daughter didn't win anything tangible, just bragging rights.
Now father has a ribbon on the bottom of one of his old shirts ...
I know we've been promising to do a video, but this is "A Prelude to the Video." Stay tuned because Eugenia's hole punch can do so much more!
