Here's a little story for you. Patrick (my boyfriend for those that don't know) has been collecting state quarters/new nickels. Well today he announced as he handed me about 40 loose SQ's that he intends to have the largest hoard of SQ's anywhere. Now this is not bad in and of itself. However, I had been putting his quarters in 2x2's and in a box for him. I said, "Ok, well maybe you can just start keeping them in a jar then." To which he replies, "Oh no, you've been slacking." Because I have a pile of about 20 others that I haven't put in holders since I ran out. I kindly informed him that he can buy the darn things. I'm using the self-adhesive ones. So he went out to jpscorner.com and bought 3 more boxes of holders. ;)


Well, I accidentally forgot to cancel my US Mint subscription for rolls of SQ's because I just really wanted MN. I didn't really want the rolls, so I cracked them open and sent sets all over the place. I told him I had 8 sets left and he rubbed his hands together and gave a devilish look, "Oh goody," he said. "More for me..." I burst right out laughing


And if you want to know, yes he realizes they are not worth much. I seem to be rubbing off on him though. I showed him the half I got today and he said, "Capped Bust?" I was like :ninja:. He said, "What? I'm visual I remember things." Just thought I'd share a little collecting humor.

In an effort to stick to a grocery budget, we go to the bank/ATM each payday and pull out some cash for the grocery store. Our thinking is that if we just have cash, we will stick the list and not buy a bunch of junk food, running the budget over.


The wife had asked me to go to the grocery store on Saturday, and gave me the cash she had pulled from the ATM. 7 brand new, in consective order $20 bills. They were so crisp! As I am looking at them and seeing that they are in consective order, she says "No! Rick you cannot keep pulling all my grocery money out and keeping it just because they are new and in order!" I told her not to worry, I would replace the $140 with a true and trusted source of funds, a check!


I got 7 new $20 for the collection, and we got our food. Win Win!

As I mentioned in another thread I got the Dansco State Quarter Album w/proofs and Silver issues yesterday, so I put the "other half" of all the mint/proof sets I've cracked in their places in the album. So Patrick comes down to the basement last night and I show it to him. He sits down and starts flipping through the pages and says.... "These are mine," and just keeps flipping through the pages. :ninja: I was dying.
