Last Call For Donations

Thanks to all of you wonderful people out there who helped donate to my worthy cause: my state quarter collection. I am in need of one more quarter and then my collection will be complete. I have all the rest. Somehow, magically, even a Puerto Rico quarter showed up in my jar. Who even knew it was a state? But Pennsylvania has remained elusive. And so I ask you one last time to dig through your purse, wallet, change jar, or ash tray and see if you have a Pennsylvania quarter you'd like to donate. And just to sweeten the deal, your donation will get you this lovely certificate:




By the way, some of you have inquired if I have put all my quarters into one of those lovely commemorative quarter holders. The answer to that is how big a nerd do you think I am? Please. They're in a sandwich baggie in my bedside table of course. And as soon as I get the last quarter, I'm going to spend the whole wad on some lovely prizes to give away on my blog. So the sooner you find Pennsylvania, the sooner you get stuff. So get on it already, why don't you!?

Sincerely,
Your ever so grateful (but not as nerdy as you think) quarter collector

Tuffy's got over 99 bucks in change in his big jar. I'll have him go through all the quarters. He would be a proud recipient of the certificate!

I was fine until I learned how much of a nerd...ah..I mean..how much of a nerd my son is...he has the little collector book....how else can you know which quarters you're missing!??!!

I'm still keeping the look out for Pennsylvania!....even more now...'cause I so want the certificate!

We have the commemorative thingie, but the quarters aren't all in it, though.... And dang it----I forgot to look for your quarters----sorry!

I see those often enough. I'll keep a look out. How serious of a collector are you? There are different 'series' of them, like D for example.

Falling off my chair laughing! WHERE did you find that wonderful commemorative certificate!?

And rather than cashing in all your quarters, please, please sell them to your nerdy mom, and SHE will put them in a nerdy commemorative book for Beck, who will consider them coolly "retro" when he grows up. Or for Daphne, who will cash them all in immediately, and buy candy.

I'll just print out the picture of that certificate and make it my own without doing anything (i.e., giving you the PA 1/4) to deserve it.
