The U.S. Mint made a quarter with bats on it, this year! I found this info because I collect coins and visited the US Mint website to see the new releases:

“The National Park of American Samoa Quarter features a Samoan fruit bat mother hanging in a tree with her pup, evoking the remarkable care and energy that the species puts into their offspring.”

  1. I like it Martha – back in 1976 each state in the U.S. got their own quarter. I was in college, working at the diner, and everyone wanted me to save them this state or that state and people had special holders to insert them in. You are likely too young to remember the frenzy of collecting these quarters. 🙂

      1. Well I knew you’ve shown pictures of your daughter but you sure do not look 57 and you seem younger as you are so fit – exercise is the best way of staying young, and it keeps you young at heart – I agree Martha. You know I can’t say I collect anything now Martha (except maybe dust in the house as I spend more time walking/blogging than I ever did before. I have walked out the door without a care in the world leaving a messy house – I was not like that before. I did collect wheat pennies when I worked at the restaurant – they are downstairs in my desk I believe, but difficult to get too and just a jar or box of them. I understood they were worth something and when I saw them at the restaurant when I made change at the register, I would set them aside. I collected teddy bears for years – I was allergist to plush animals as a child and when I got older and had allergy shots (still on immunotherapy by the way after decades) my mom bought a teddy bear for me one day when we were together in a store. She said “for all the teddy bears you missed as a baby/child.” That started something as she would buy them for holidays, birthdays, special occasions and I bought some too. I stopped at 52 bears. Not all were big, but not all were small either. They threatened to overtake every space like a dresser or chest – even into my mom’s room and TV room. I had to end it. 🙂
