At some point AllesGirls‘ mom bought state quarter collection books for herself, AllesGirl, and AllesGirls siblings. HerSpouse and AllesGirls’ mom send quarters to each other fast and furious and they know which ones are needed to complete their respective collections.
We are now trained to look for certain mints of certain states every time we get change.
After the yard sale it was Game On and we went through the quarters to look for Wyoming with a “D” (the East Coast mint). That was the last one needed to complete AllesGirls’ moms collection. We found one! Triumphantly, HerSpouse sent it through the mail.
Only, it wasn’t Wyoming that we needed, it was Wisconsin.
We gave up.
