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.

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.

Bright sunshine through the window helps.

I wondered why my house listed to the right.

Sometimes You're the Bug...

I don't know who first came up with it but it's a marvellous saying. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's like sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...but far more descriptive. I mean have you ever had it happen to you? You're driving along as the sun's just gone down. You turn on your lights in the dusk and the bugs just seem to flock to your windshield, drawn as if by a magnet. Now, of course, you're faced with a choice. Do you just leave them be or do you flip on the windshield wipers and shoot windshield wiper fluid at your windshield. If it's ever happened to you, you know this is a no-win situation. Trying to clean them off usually makes it worse. You better hope you find a gas station...or a guy at the side of the road who wants a dollar...with a squeegee. That's the only way. And, of course, the bug never wins. It's always the windshield that comes out on top. When I was a kid, though, riding my bik

The Polka Dot Door

A long time ago, when I was 22, my first child was born.  That kid grew up on a little Canadian kid's show called Polka Dot Door, produced by the TV Ontario network.  And Dad, more often than not, sat through those shows with his little one. Nine or so years later when a brother, and a year after that when a sister came along number one son was moving on to Knight Rider and The Dukes of Hazzard.  But there was a nice overlap where his siblings picked up where he had left off with Polka Dot Door.  And Dad was right there to welcome them. So you're looking at a Polka Dot Door veteran.  The show began in 1971 and ran to 1993.  I didn't watch the full run but I did get in my fair share.  The formula was pretty simple.  A young male and female host, which seemed to change every week, sang songs, told stories, made crafts and generally did their best stimulate little brains.  The show opened as follows... Imagination Day!  Oh boy!  You know what happens on Imagination D
