THIS WEEK'S PHOTO

See a penny, pick it up.  
All the day you'll have good luck.

But Mom!
Finding a penny in brown leaves isn't a challenge.  
It's torture!

Thanks for the morning laugh! I must admit, I'm not too proud to pick up a coin on the ground, but not when walking through piles of leaves! Unique take on the photo!

What kind of mom would tell her kid that when surrounded by leaves? I agree with the kid!

Good one, hope. Have a great week.

I never thought of that. That might be harder than finder a four leaf clover.

Gosh if she can find a penny in amongst all those leaves that'll be real luck! ;)

LOL .. made me laugh Hope!

She'll need to spend a penny before she finds one!

(Oh! Only the UK readers will get that one!! It used to cost one old penny to use the public conveniences .. hence spending a penny .... :D)

Titus said...
