Is this another Beer rendition of our Precious? Mmmm, not bad at all.
This is a monthly series of log entries documenting my extended quest of finding Silver treasure in the most unlikely places or is it?
"One day there will be some poor little old widow with one of her late husband's jars of coins to be sorted by that newfangled green teller machine. She eases the jar on the machine to stare at the electronic screen testing her old bifocals tilting her head one way then the other. She mumbles to herself, 'What happened to the good old days when there's a lovely Teller to give me personal service?' “My Sylvester needs some cat food”, she says. And hopefully I will be there just when she's done."
Meanwhile, I can pickup a bit of loose change while I’m at it.
The results from my local Coinstar Machine
Total Checks four, as I am back on my routine for August but No coin, No SILVER Results but a little key.
Now into the results from the Compass Train Fare Machines!
Again with the Summer months train ridership is reduced since Post-secondary students are off and a lot of white collar workers are taking their vacations. But results we still have!
