    I learn something new about you all of the time. I was unaware you collected pocket knives. I'll add that to my mental notes about you and let you know if I see anything I think you might be interested in.

    Quick question. When you go to flea markets or garage sales, and see coins, even if they are out of your wheel house, how do you know you are paying a good price? I'd love to see someone selling something interesting, like that Uraguay set, but wouldn't have a clue on what to pay. Do you do a phone search for more info? Fortunately, or unfortunately, I don't have a smart phone and couldn't do that, and my old brain can't seem to keep all of the information stored for when I need it.

    Yes. I like Cracker Barrel but keep my distance from strange looking fellows. LOL

    There is one about 3 miles from where I live, and several within 25 miles along I-75. I've had occasion to eat at all of them. Sometimes they're good and sometimes they're not so good.

    I have those same Uruguay coins, but not in such good condition. Nice Find! Following along Mountain Man's question, how do you know what to pay? I might start a photo collection of the pocket knives I have lost to security people.

    Never had a great meal at a Cracker Barrel. It’s simple food and that is OK if that’s what you are looking for.

    I used to have a bunch of coins from Uruguay and Paraguay from before 1968. When my wife kicked me out, she threw away all of my coins from there. I did happen to save pristine 10 Peso bank notes in numerical sequence dated 1968. That makes them 52 years old. I may have mentioned them earlier. Not worth much, but they are pretty.
