Aw, it's just small change.
Pat Kumicich said…
watcha gonna do with all that loot?
nonamedufus said…
One day I'll roll them and take them to the bank. Or use it to pay my taxes.
Laughing Mom said…
Wow! You've just got jars of money sitting around?!? You're gonna roll them!?! - Rolling in dough, aren't you!?!
Ziva said…
Jeez, dufus! You were begging me to send you some money? You have a ton of it!
nonamedufus said…
I hate carrying spare change around in my pants pockets. So I throw them in jars. They add up.
nonamedufus said…
Damend by my own photo. Shit.
Jayne said…
Wow! Are all those coins yours? How much time do you spend each day polishing them? And can I get a loan? ;)
nonamedufus said…
Canadian coins are naturally shiny. I don't have to polish them at all. I charge a pretty steep interest fee, Jayne, but I'm sure we can work something out.

Love that you're spare change is in jars. There's something about the look of all those colored pieces of metal seen through glass that makes me smile. I keep all my real copper pennies in an old milk jar and my 'found' coins in an old teddy bear shaped glass that used to hold sugar.

We have plenty of mason jars that Mrs D uses for jams and relishes. If I could fill a "quarter" of them, I'd be rich.
Linda Medrano said…
Damn! I do like a man with money!
nonamedufus said…
Back off, Linda. I won't be contributing to the Medrano shoe fund.

Impressive international collection of coins there, Dufus! (Are US coins as hard to get rid of in Canada as Canadian coins are to get rid of in the US?) Maybe we could trade a few.

Oh snap. That's a whole lotta change!
nonamedufus said…
Sometimes change is good.
Jamie Baker said…
I see all that blogging is starting to pay dividends...

money, money, money. you are loaded!
Nicky said…
Pssst, Dufus. There's a 'merican dime mixed in with the real money in that second jar.
nonamedufus said…
Shhhh...don't tell anyone.
Shiny shiny shiny coins too! I love this photograph!

America rocks!

I once read about a guy who had so many pennies it was breaking his house. I hope you're that guy.
nonamedufus said…
Bright sunshine through the window helps.

I wondered why my house listed to the right.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
