The last few months have kept me busy with other priorities in my life. I have been asked why I don’t write more. We all have busy schedules, enthusiasm ebbs and flows, priorities may change. All of these apply to me. I put this page up with the intent, not of trying to sell more widgets, but to give our customers some education about coins, and to let you know us on a more personal level. Sometimes it may be silly things, sometimes a picture of us at work. But in the end, I hope it is a pleasant experience for our customers and friends.
For the past two weeks, I have been out of the store trying to care for my very sick dog Callie. In the end, she just could not fight to stay with us any longer and passed away last Wednesday, June 20th. If you have ever lost a pet, you know how difficult it is. To my wife and me, she was our best friend.
Thanks to Joel and Chris for taking care of the store in my absence. They may be my employees, but mostly, they too are my friends in whom I have complete confidence. As I wrote on my personal Facebook page, June 20th was summer solstice, the longest day of the year. It was also the longest day of my life. Rest in peace my friend.
