I would like to ask everyone here to take a simple test and post the results! NO PASS NO FAIL! I promise! I will reply to each of you! My positive rear-end that makes many happy and irritates some is willing to approach each of you on your terms and this is how I can do so!

So here's the test! Lay down 2 dimes, quarters, pennies or nickles. Both face up or both tails up. Look at them! Tell me exactly what you see when you look at them!Write a little or write a lot! Your call! That's it! Be honest! Do not read the other replies before replying to me! This is about being an individual and not about following the opinions of others!

REMEMBER NO PASS NO FAIL!!! Love to all of you! And may I ask??? What do ya have to lose??? I saw that there were quite a few who answered the roll call! So what are ya waiting for???

OKAY! Remember people no pass no fail! I'll be the 1st up to bat here! I've done this test before though! It helped me immensely!

If I look at 2 items that are the same I see just that! 2 matching items! Be they coins, flowers, or prunes! You know what that means? Means you gotta take my test to know! HAH!

This new board has a feature the old one didn't! It tells you how many times a post has been read! This one was read 21 times! No takers yet! Please remember who posted it! It's not for the purpose of judging anyone! It's purpose is to help! Yep simply help! Who is brave enough??? GT? Know you are! Chris, NRE know you are too! BATTER UP!

OK... not at all sure what this is about but, I'll play..........

I'm looking at 2 quarters, face up. Each is a circle about 1" in diameter and silver in color. Each has a profile head view of a man (former president but don't grade me on the fact that I don't know his name) LOL The man has a large nose, recessed hair line, long hair tied with a bow at the end of a pony tail. Each coin also has a visible raised ring on the outer edge and grooves around their sides.

But the quarters differ as one says *Liberty* at the top and the other says *United States Of America*. Also, the words *In God We Trust* are on opposite sides of the coins. And, one shows the year 1988 while the other says *Quarter Dollar*.

Hi..........don't have a clue what this is about but my nose has gotten the better of me.

In front of me i have 2 pound coins.I can't really think of what i can say about them.

They both have the queens head and one is dated 1984 and the other 1985.One looks as though it's been through the wars - more wear and tear than the other (looks like it has been kept and polished and taken care of)

That's about as much as i can say.

Sorry this is so short,i wish i could think of more to say.

Looking forward to the results!!!!!

Hi Sweetblond43

Well I see two heads , one newer then the other but if you take one away there are only one. Two heads work better then one, one may be older and wiser but the other makes them look good. I could go on for awhile but I get the jest of this exersize and will always be in your debt for your freindship. AF

It was late in the morning when I posted.... and should have added that the coins were lying on a very disorganized desk while I was staring at a monitor trying to figure out what could be the meaning of this game...LOL

Today, I'm organizing my desk clutter and taking a break from this still frustrating board so perhaps, you can email me my results? stre2001@mail2world.com

I do wish more of you would play so SB43 can tell us what this means...

Wishing ALL of you a great day!

Sherry

PS - BTW, SB43, I don't care for the new added board counter 'cause it makes me feel bad for the poster that comes here, asks for help, receives *1* reply but can also see that the post was viewed 120 times!

The minute I read your post, I thought what a wonderful idea! I chose pennies because I always have a ton of them! :) Also I chose heads because the minute I looked at them I thought of the old slogan, two heads are better than one! That sure rings true in so many of life issues. It made me think of my true friends and how much I appreciate them being in my life because when I have a need, no matter what it is, I know I can just pick up the phone and have someone who genuinely cares on the other end.

I looked at the dates on the pennies. One is dated 1980 and the other 2002. This was sort of weird because it was exactly 22 years from the time the MM and his family moved until we reunited! Spooooooky. LOL. The one from 1980 is very old, dark and dingy where the new one is bright and shiny. It reinforced what I have always thought and that was if the love the MM and I shared can last all that time, then we could both be elderly, see each other and be head over heels in love all over again. There is some security in that. It also made me realize how much of life we never got to experience together and that we both did the best we could to build a good life for ourselves, despite the heartache of being apart.

Last but certainly not least, in looking at these pennies I thought of how short life really is. We have very little time that passes so quickly to get things right in life, to learn and grow from our mistakes and to share everything we've learned with those who are dear to us. It also made me think about the fact that these pennies will still be around long after I'm gone. Can't take any of the wealth and material things with me when my time is up. It brings a wonderful perspective that to grow spiritually is what is most important in life, not how many possessions we aquire while we're here.

Thanks Sweeterblonde! You are a great friend!! Let's talk more often!

Hugs,

GT

Okay, now I;m curious, I reached into my pocket grabbed them and put them down without looking. They both landed face up, to shiny silver coins, identical except for the dates, 1990 and 1980. A man's profile, the words liberty and in god we trust, both facing to the left. that's about it. Guess I don't have much imagination today. Can't wait to see where you're going with this!

OK....I'm game

This is what I see - .82 cents - I laid them out all face down, so I see the backs of all the change, quarters have the Eagle & one is the Indiana Quarter, my eyes are to bad to read the small writing. The Dimes are the ones with the torches, the Nickles have Monticello the Pennies have the Linclon Memoiral and of course they all say United States of America & e pluribus unum, I know this but can't read it! Also each one has the denomintaion (i.e. One Quarter, One Dime.... and so on) The Indiana Quarter has the date of admission and the year on the back..... none of the others have that.

It's only money .... nothing special about it, it all spends the same or saves the same.

How did I do Sweeterblonde???
