Buffalo Indian Chief Classic Coin Design Tribute

The Buffalo Nickel has always fascinated me. My father was an avid coin collector, so I learned a lot about coins during my childhood. I was hoping that I would receive his collection (or at least part of it) when he passed away, so many years ago, but that just wasn’t the way things went down when the time came.

Throughout the years I have picked up a few pieces here and there along the way and I’ve always wanted a few of the Buffalo Nickels (1913 through 1938.) that my father would tell me so many stories about. While I continue my search for the original Buffalo Nickels they do have available some pretty nice ones at modern coin wholesale dot com that are made of pure silver bullion bars that are made in the U.S.A. from silver mined in the U.S. I think this might be a great way to start as well as a good investment.

Winter Crafts

My sister is incredibly talented and has learned how to paint in a beautiful style called “one stroke” painting. She is so good that people are asking her to hold classes and teach them how to do this, too.


She just finished painting these butterflies and leaves on a large wooden lazy susan for her kitchen table.

Aren’t they gorgeous? I love the bright colors and the different shadings.

Family Support System

There is never a good time to have health issues pop up, but there are certainly worse times and right before Christmas is right up there on top of the list of bad times. My step-father has been having to go to the doctor a lot more than usual this past year. He is only 57 and has always seemed to be in the best of shape and just brimming over with good health.

Well my mother just brought him back from another doctor’s visit and they have been told that they are afraid that he is a prime candidate for DVT (blood clot(s) that¬† can form in one of your major vein(s) of your body, most commonly in your legs, t can also occur in your arms) and/or PE (Which is when a clot breaks off from its point of origin (DVT) and takes a trip to the lungs, hence it prevents your normal blood flow, it is called a pulmonary embolism).

So it looks like the two of them will be backing off of a lot of the tasks that they generally take on during the holidays. Which is a decision that I fully support and hope that I can help out in any way that I can.

The Issue of Watches

Even though a lot of people are turning to their cell phones and other electronic devices to see what time it is. I have still enjoyed wearing my wrist watches so that I don’t have to dig out my cell phone to see the time, I’d rather have it at a quick glance. I love going to the flea market, there are several vendors there that always have the greatest selection of watches that you can try on and hopefully purchase if the price is right.

I also enjoy looking online to see all the new fangled automatic watches that are out on the market now. Of course there are other types of watches to utilize as well. My grandfather always had a nice pocket watch that he either had in his pocket (Dah) or hanging from a chain clipped somewhere on his shirt. My mother on the hand used to wear a nice necklace watch that I always was fascinated with and always wanted her to let me wear.

I’ve even seen some pretty cool ring watches, but I don’t think that I could handle all of the bulk on any of my fingers. Anyway I’m glad to know that there are still plenty of options available to us all to see what time of the day (or night) it is and I hope that more people will head back to this wonderful time pieces instead of all the digital ways that we have been getting used to.

Criminal Defense Lawyers

The things that you learn on Facebook these days just amazes me. I had found an old co worker of mine on Facebook and we have re connected after so many years. It just tickles me to be able to hear what she has been up to all this time. I can’t wait to be able to hook up with her for lunch in the near future so we can meet face to face after all these years. But it looks like I’ll have to wait a little bit longer than I anticipated since she is now headed to Southern California to assist her oldest son in finding a los angeles criminal defense lawyer after getting himself mixed up with the wrong crowd shortly after his arrival in L.A.

She wants to find the best california criminal lawyer in the area that will do the best job possible representing her son and felt that long distance phone calls just wouldn’t cut the mustard. She wanted to see these folks face to face to get a better feel of what they are all about. I can’t blame her for that, I’m the same way. There is nothing like looking someone right in the eye to get a good feel of what they are composed of, it’s just too bad that these people are over two thousand miles away. I hope her son appreciates all the time, expense, trouble and heartache that his mother is going through for him.
