The bank where Elmer and Pearl live just got a shiny, new ATM. So, they decided they had to get one of them-there cards so they could get their money any time--even on Sunday-going-to-Church day.

But, when the manager said pick a 7-digit number that you won't forget, and don't use your birthday, etc. they had a problem. They were not good at remembering stuff. What to do! What to do! Then the light came on!

Elmer picked 1058421.
Pearl picked 6060247.

They exchange information on how they would remember their numbers.

Pearl said, "That's a real handy number, Elmer. But I think mine is more timely."

Can you figure out what they were using for a memory jog?

Elmer's number is: 10-5-8-4-2-1
The number of fingers & thumbs on both hands; fingers and thumbs on one hand; fingers on both hands; fingers on one hand; thumbs on both hands; thumbs on one hand. Pearl said this was HANDy.

Pearl's number is 60-60-24-7.
The number of seconds in a minute, the number of minutes in an hour, the number of hours in a day, and the number of days in a week. She said this was TIMEly.
