...just when you get ahead, some problem rears it's ugly head.
I think I jinxed myself. Back in May, on the 23rd I think, I wrote a journal entry saying how my financial situation had improved and I had some extra cash to spend on my coin passion. Well wouldn't you know it, something always happens to me to muck up my plans.
We've been getting a lot of rain here in southeastern Iowa, and of course, my roof started to leak (although only in one place). Well, I knew this time would come, as my brother had told me a couple of years ago to start thinking about redoing the roof. We were hoping to get by till next spring, in fact I already had gotten myself on the work list of one contractor. Well, to make a long story short, he got me in this week and I was lucky enough to have the lumber yard have some good shingles (30 year guarantee) available at a good price. So bright and early this morning, work started on my roof. They really got a lot accomplished today, when I came home from work tonight, there were a bunch of shingle bundles up on the roof. So hopefully they'll have it finished in a couple of days.
Anyway, that extra money is no more, we had some in our farm account to pay most of the bill, it's going to take my extra to take care of the shingles.
I know this isn't a coin entry per se, but it does affect what can be spent on coins. So I'll work on photographs and keep watching auctions for lower price coins till we can get a stash built back up.
Picture of the entry is the reverse of my 1942-D Merc.
