Family Dynamics

Coins-United States | slybluenote

Today is a special day for me as some of you are well aware. 41 years ago I married my best friend! I did start another collection today of quarters, so it's my second collection on this website. The pictures here and in the collection are just some of my favorites. Last year I enlisted in the U.S. Mint Silver Proof Program. In my case silver is more affordable than gold. I'm not overly knowledgeable about quarters but I'm still on the learning curve. Today I learned that 147 million Americans collected the State Quarters and that number represents at least one person from every household collected these quarters. My step dad married my mom when I was about 10 years old. Although he never "officially" adopted me, I still called him Dad. He was quite a drinker so our family was what is now called dysfunctional. Being prior military, he commanded respect. I wasn't a big fan of his discipline tactics, but I did respect him. When the state quarter program began, he went to a local bank and obtained a map and started collecting the different states quarters when they were distributed. He didn't live long enough to complete his map, so I did it for him. I wouldn't meet my birth father until much later in my life. That's a WHOLE different story which will eventually be revealed in another blog.
