And The Waving Wheat
Three months into the year and it finally landed in my sweaty palm. That's right! I received my first Oklahoma quarter.
Had to help out a friend Monday so over lunch I ran out to provide assistance. It was a late lunch -- 1:15 to 2:15 p.m. On the way back to the workplace, ran through a Wendy's drive through to get five of those tasty chicken nuggets and some mustard sauce. OK. I'll admit to you and no one else that I actually opted on two orders. Considering I hadn't eaten anything all day ---- ooops, I guess Dan had brought in some cheese cake with graham cracker crust. I did have one (very thin) slice for breakfast ---- I thought 10 chicken nuggets would be a nice and hearty lunch. I even licked the mustard sauce out of one of the little plastic tubs. :)
Back to my point .... the total was $2.13. Always wanting dimes in return change, I provided three pennies. Like magic, my 90-cents had two Oklahoma quarters! Rock on! That means I also received my second Oklahoma quarter too. The other quarter was a 1979 run-of-the-mill.
Here's a link to a former post if you have forgotten about my obsession with these quarters. Here's a link to the design of the Oklahoma quarter.
