Quote of the Day

"Och, I'm not going to spend your old five pounds," said Susan, "but we could get five pounds' worth of pennies and go through them quietly at home for the important dates--" Tessa supposed there could be no harm in that, "--and if we had no luck we could take them back and change them for another lot--"
"Give ourselves hours of harmless fun," said Midge sardonically, but as she usually found that it saved  trouble in the long run to give in to Susan's dotty ideas, she didn't object, and the girls and Bill made their way to the bank.

From A JOB FOR SUSAN, Chapter 9, Easy Money.
