Old Friends Are Good Ones at NSDR
January 11, 2008

Fridays at the annual Florida United Numismatists conventions are always topped off for me by attendance at the National Silver Dollar Roundtable dinner.

It is a great time with good hobby friends at a Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. I eat more red meat than is good for me, but how can I resist?

I burn a few calories off by taking photographs of the awards. I am looking forward to seeing who wins them tonight.

Randy Campbell always does an excellent job as emcee.

It is gratifying to see how hard work and reputation add up to recognition and heartfelt congratulations by hobby peers.

The years fly by and it is by these milestones that the participants remember their time in the hobby.
