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.
Cheryl said…
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.
Paula Wooters said…
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...
v said…
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.

Bright sunshine through the window helps.

I wondered why my house listed to the right.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
