While working on homework tonight, I let myself be distracted by a box of pennies I’ve been keeping for the past 5 or 6 years. Generally, when I empty my wallet or pockets of change I put the silver into a buffalo-head nickel jar Grandmother game me a very long time ago, and the pennies go into a black leather Dockers box that was also given to me by the grandparents when they gave me my wallet.
Anyway, the box is pretty much full of pennies at this point, though over the years other little doodads have managed to get in there. I separated these out, and have here recorded them for posterity.
So we’ve got some Chuck-E-Cheese tokens, some tokens to Buffalo Lanes bowling alley, some fake Spanish doubloons, some pins, some tacks, some rings, a tie tack (possibly stolen from Dad?), a key ring, a small mirror, some nails, a mancala bead, and one of Dr. Hayenga’s business cards.
Also on my camera, some pictures of Gus and Roxie, my and Amy’s tortoises respectively. Gus is the larger of the two, on the right.
