... that is the question.
I just finished teaching 10 quilting classes at Central Sewing in Edmonton, Alberta. I met so many amazing quilters and had a fantastic time here!
Since I am flying directly to Houston tomorrow, I asked at my hotel about laundry facilities. The desk clerk, Nicole, said, "It is coin operated, but we have loonies at the front desk." Um..... ok..... huh? There are likely loonies at the front desk of many hotels, but they don't proudly advertise that fact. After thinking for a while, I bravely asked, "Are loonies coins?"
We had a long conversation about American money and Canadian money. Apparently paper money in Canada starts with the five-dollar bill. They have a one-dollar coin called a "loonie" and a two-dollar coin called a "toonie." How did I not know this?
Thanks to one of my students, I am now the proud owner of a toonie:
