My Fears Were Unfounded!
On June 17, 2011, I wrote a journal entry entitled,"TO REVEAL OR NOT TO REVEAL", in which I expressed my concern about revealing my coin hobby to my bridge club friends. Well, today, I revealed.
I read to them another journal entry, "OUT OF THE ATTIC", (2-5-09) which is a story about my family history. In addition to reading the story, I shared with them pictures of my grandpa, working as a butler; my grandmother on her college campus in the early 1900"s; my great grandmother's high school graduation program from 1890; my great-great-grandmother's picture from the mid-1800's; my grandfather's gold watch; and some coins from the attic of his employer's estate (Japan & India).
They were absolutely facinated with the pictures and watch that augmented my story, but not ONE of them gave the coins more than a casual glance!
My fears of sharing were unfounded- they don't care about my hobby!!!
