Yesterday was the second “Furlough Friday” in Hawaii, when schools closed and teachers went on unpaid furlough to help meet the State of Hawaii’s budget crisis.
Maybe that would explain the large crowd at the annual Hawaii State Numismatic Association’s (HSNA) annual coin show at the convention center.
Although, it gives one pause to think; it's an optimistic statement about the collecting hobbies when people whose incomes are taking a hit still find time to attend a coin show (and visit my stamp table).
The wife is joining me this year, helping to man my table. What a sweetheart, huh?
