I hope this is the right place to post. I am a new collector and am soaking up as much knowledge on coins as my little brain can handle. I reside in Normangee, TX with my wonderful wife of 32 years. I am a disabled vet and need something to do inside sometimes. Can't take the heat anymore! Glad to be here with you all.
kook_ds: we are glad to have you with us, and to the CCF !
I had an uncle who served with the Americal 6th Army Division** at Guadalcanal. I have a copy of his rather extensive memoirs. Later, He was appointed as their official historian and artist.
Your good wife will always be the most valuable thing to appreciate. If the heat bothers you, get into the smallest A/C room in the house to save energy costs. Have your collection, and perhaps a companion dog or cat with you. Make sure your good wife always gets appreciated when she brings you a cup of coffee.
