...And other quirks of the past.
In 2012 I wrote a series of posts entitled, "Do You Still..." I wrote about wearing a watch and alarm clocks and other outdated and quirky habits. I was rolling coins this week and it struck me that this qualified for an updated "Do You Still..." post.
I've rolled literally thousands of dollars worth of coins in the last almost fifty years. My coin rolling career began when I was a waitress in college. Most of my income came in coins -- lot of fifty cent tips in 1969 -- and in order to deposit them, they needed to be rolled. I no longer waitress, but I still save change and deposit it in the bank.
I've tried every sort of coin rolling device, short of buying a commercial one that banks use. I long ago decided that simply counting the coins and rolling them was the least complicated and fastest for me. One of the banks had coin counting machines, but alas, they were removed in the last year. I loved the ease, but when they were disconnected I returned to my old-fashioned quirky habit. I don't keep up as well as I did when all I had to do was put my coins in a bag and walk over to the bank, but usually every two weeks I've got a roll or two to deposit. I keep my coins in an old can and when the lid no longer fits I get busy.
I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in this quirky habit. Any other coin rollers in Buttercupland?
I'll be back tomorrow for Pink Saturday on Sunday. The high point of the week was getting to the gym three times, which may be a first for me. Last week, we had some nice weather as well as some cold and rainy weather, so on the rainy days it was great to get exercise indoors.
As ever, thanks for visiting. Take care and keep cozy!
