The Hundred Penny Box - 1969, 1976

Joining in on DancingDolphin's theme of “The Hundred Penny Box.”

Here's the story:
In the book, "The Hundred Penny Box“, a very old woman has a box filled with pennies dated one for each year of her life. The child in the story goes to the box and pulls out a penny, and the old woman tells the child a story from that year of her life.

The idea is to take a penny and find a PHOTO from that year of your life. If you would like to join in, please tag your photo ”100pennies" so that we can share.

Here's where you can find others that have joined in: “100Pennies” []
