And the Grand Total Is ...

$10 in quarters, $20.20 in dimes, $6.30 in nickels, $4.16 in pennies,

2 looneys and a puzzling number of coins from Mexico, France,

England and Germany which don't count

- and I have no idea how they got in there anyway.

The total amount of money in the pig was $42.66

 One person

came close to guessing the amount.

On face book my long time friend, Wendy, who lives in Perth, Ontario

guessed $42.21.
Anyway, that means I will throw in an extra tooney
and donate $44.66 to the 'Out of the Cold'
Breakfast Programme. 

As for the pig, well she's on the mend as you can see.

She'll be getting a new coat of paint and a pretty new ribbon

and I'll post her picture when she's done.


And what will you be doing with your Canadian pennies now
that they are goners?

Well done Wendy :) I certainly never imagined Miss Piggy held that much loot. This is of course good news for the 'Out of the Cold' programme.

Congrats to Wendy! My guess was only $7.34 off! Looking forward to seeing Piggy's makeover.

A nice respectable amount! I was a little off, but I'm glad that your total came to more. And I'm happy that Piggy is healing...poor thing... I will be rolling up my small coins sometime this month, as well. I don't think it's as much, but I would like to get rid of the pennies.

When you were six, would you ever have imagined that people would be "getting rid of" money? You could buy a jawbreaker for a penny back then.
