Had the best day for coins in a long time. Came home Tuesday with five silver quarters! About as good as it gets anymore…at least for this Bubba. I’m not sure about sharing the site for fear it will be overrun with tekkies but I just might a little later on.
It’s been hot in North Texas with temps around 100 and as a result I’ve been hiding out in the house praying the AC doesn’t break down. Yesterday however I decided it was time to get off my ass and wash the ‘pug bug’. I love my yellow VW Beetle and do my best to keep it looking good. Anyway I drove up to the carwash, inserted five dollars in the change maker and out came 20 quarters, three of them silver. Needless to say that called for another five dollars! The next batch of 20 delivered two more silver quarters, and at that point I was seriously thinking about rushing home, grabbing a stool, a bottle of something good and playing slots for the rest of the day. Unfortunately the next few tries didn’t provide any more silver.
As a result of this I was tempted to visit the local bank, cash a check and sort through some quarter rolls but changed my mind. I will however stop back at the carwash today and give it another go. I mean who needs a detector (or Vegas for that matter)?
THIS SHOULD BE INTERESTING…
While perusing Facebook I came across a photo of my old friend Nigel Ingram, owner of Regton, Ltd. Apparently he recently attended a school reunion and one of his classmates decided to post up the above picture. I messaged this classmate and found out that none of the wives were present and things got a little out of hand later in the evening. He also sent me a few more photos, none of which I can share here. So Nigel, my friend, what is this all this worth? Oh, and while you are thinking about it remember you owe me few bucks from way back when.
Someone sent me the following and I am sorry I don’t remember who. Anyway it’s a nice write-up about tekkies in the NYC area….enjoy
