Minnie Pearl’s Wooden Nickels

 

HOW-DEE!!!!!  Miss Minnie Pearl was a Nashville favorite.  She was amember of the Opry and a regular on Hee-Haw where she had a shop and a wooden nickel got you a cup of coffee.  I was on the set one time as a kid when my mother was guest starring and Minnie gave me a box full of her wooden nickels.  She was the greatest lady and there is now the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center in her name here in Nashville.
