I’ve been away for some time. I think I’m back? Hardly recognize the site from what I recall? Never left this hobby. Never forgot any of you. I took a vacation from cable tv, social media and other what I came to view as distractions to sanity?
And, to use an old saying... to find myself. Well...
I’ve found that while this hobby can’t be shared with all of those we know, (for security reasons) it can be shared here, somewhat annonomosly. With those here that can relate to each other. And God knows I’ve wished many times, that I could have shared that which I’ve been blessed with, with so many down through the years. That was... probably... very luckily... decided against... my doing... Many times. Thank God.
Many things to say. Those of you that may remember, I can be long winded. So probably best if I split these ides/comments up a wee bit. I just signed up for a twelve month tour of duty, and it took several minutes to even find the “Journals”?
Us old guys all use to see them on the front the NGC home page lower left.
So... you all may actually be quite fortunate to only have read this one journal entry, as I may never find my way back to this spot again? I’ve been third world for some time. Tech rusty is what I’m using for an excuse this day.
Anyway, it feels good to be back. (if I am really back?) hmmmm?
Before it was mostly all about points. How many of my slabbed coins could I tally up? How many sets could I come up with? What’s my point total now?
Not anymore. I have many coin interests. Foreign and domestic. And I’ve sold nothing. (so far)
so many interests. Yet I have only two true loves.
Pre 1908 Ten Dollar Liberty Gold
MS Franklin Halves
(Franklin’s are my only coin set here. It is a set that has been upgraded, & is currently not accurate) new additions this week on the way, and hopefully from Long Beach early June in both Franklin & $10 libs. ? We’ll see I guess.
Another thing is, I’m unsure I can enter all my current coins here now, as some are in PCGS slabs?? (rules may have changed) Guess I’ll find out that later.
i remember the day I deleted dozens of sets here, and left just the one. I remember the reason. Soon I’ll have just the two. And this time it won’t be about the points. It’ll be about, what it’s supposed to have always been about.
Just want to say to all of you. We have a great hobby here that I dearly love. And I’m sure that you all love as well. Until next time... may that post person deliver something happy to your door today! And maybe instead of hiding it from the wife, you can both share in the joy!
