    There are several that are obvious, some not so much, and others I can't even read. So let's go the obvious route.
    "Georgia....on my mind" a reference to a popular song.
    "Horse..in..a..round" a reference to the phrase 'Horsing around' as in being playful.
    "Diamond...in the rough" a reference to Arkansas's raw diamond fields.

    I think that's got me in the game.

    I picked the Mississippi quarter last time but of course being from KY I really like my state quarter too! Also, the Kentucky Derby is being ran this Saturday! The quarter also depicts "my old kentucky home", a three story mansion built in the early 1800's. Stephen Foster wrote the song which plays on repeat the entire time you tour the place and gets rather... annoying....lol.

    I suppose I can be the first one to take a crack at California "ODD RITUALS"

    This is a tough one, but wide open. Here's a few running theories:

    1. The urbanites of california can be a rather "odd" bunch.
    2. The california condor is an incredibly odd and misunderstood bird.
    3. My favorite. The origin of the name of this state according to this article. Where there exists Beautiful women and man eating griffins. A wild and dangerous place, chalk full of gold. Now there are some "odd rituals"...

    2005 California State Quarter


    Wings of the Spirit: The Place of the CALIFORNIA CONDOR Among Native
    Peoples of the Californias
    John W. Foster,
    Senior State Archaeologist (Retired)

    In June 1579 a small sailing vessel made its way cautiously along the California coast. Francis Drake, destined to become one of the world's legendary sea captains, was looking for a place to careen his leaky vessel -- the Golden Hind. He had come halfway around the world, and was to complete his voyage by sailing across the Pacific and to England, but he desperately needed a place to make repairs.

    As he approached the shore of this land never before seen by European eyes (assuming it was northern California), Drake's crew was surprised to see several canoes venturing out from shore. The descriptions of this event are sketchy, but it seems clear that the native in one canoe made a statement, perhaps a blessing, and then threw a black-feathered bundle onto the deck of Drake's ship. From its description, the feathers were probably from the CALIFORNIA CONDOR. Drake's reaction to this event is not recorded except that it's clear the Englishmen felt they were being worshiped as GOD'S. In fact, they may have been perceived as GHOSTS , coming from the land of the dead. The first gift from native Californians was probably the feathers of a CALIFORNIA CONDOR, and a sign of MOURNING RITUAL.

    Since you have not yet posted an entry to this drawing (#2), you may of course enter, on your behalf or someone else’s.

    It was by random chance that you won Contest #1. As long as you limit your entries to one per contest, it’s all good.

    In that case...
    Entry post, please.
    Not sure who the winnings will go to, one of the usual suspects.

    On the reverse of the Massachusetts coin is Horse In A Round. There’s a horse on the coin. Of course, coin collectors are guilty of doing a lot of “horsin’ around.”

    Thanks for another great contest @lordmarcovan

    Several of my choices have already been mentioned, so I'll go with "Horse in a Round (coin)" for Delaware, "horsing around."

    Almost too much fun for this early in the day.

    Once again, Thank you LordM!

    A little effort in this one. I think I'll go with "Sap Heads," on the 2001 Vermont quarter.

    The "Horse in a round" Delaware is a pun on the phrase "horsing around" but also describes the quarter it's stamped onto.

    I will take Illinois. It has former President Abraham Lincoln on it. Phrases are " The Resolute Lincoln" and 21st Century State. President Lincoln was determined, unwavering and reliable as well as honest.
