    We use to have an expression: A penny for your thoughts. Now we don't use Penny's so would need to come up with a new saying:

    A nickel for your thoughts?

    A dime for your thoughts?

    A Quarter for your thoughts?

    A loonie for you thoughts?

    Or something entirely different?

    If someone paid Rusty a penny for his thoughts, they would be paying far too much. 😀

    I'd pay him with a rusty penny but I'd expect change.

    A good one!

    A little over thirty years ago, eighty-one year old Clara Peller (1902 – 1987) uttered the immortal words “where's the beef?” for a Wendy's Restaurant TV commercial.
