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.
