Two Necklaces....

Checkout this stylish looking necklace we recently found, actually it was the first of two necklaces we found on corresponding days last week. This one, in our opinion, was the sharpest of the two with a combination of smaller pearl and larger ruby beads set against what appears to be a simple metal chain. There is a maker’s mark of a crown near the clasp, but nothing else to suggest that’s it more than your run-of-the-mill jewelry. Nevertheless, it’s a nice find.

Another Series Win – So far, the news has been good for Red Sox fans on this current nine-game road trip. While the Bosox got spanked on Saturday to the tune of 11-0, Sunday was a different story thanks in part to a Coco Crisp game tying homerun. That’s right, you heard me folks, good ole coco game to the rescue with a dinger, and then Jed Lowrie, another guy who has come up big for Boston, capped things off with the game winner in the 11th inning. Needless to say, this was a huge win for the sox, both from a confidence level and from a momentum standpoint. Winning the first two series gives them fuel going into New York for their showdown series, which begins on Tuesday. A Series win against the Yankees and the sox have gone a long way securing a playoff spot. A series sweep would effectively eliminate the Yankees, and a series loss or sweep and things get really interesting, both for the division and the wild card. Time will certainly tell the tale of this story.

Money Report – We had some luck with our coin finding ventures over the weekend. Saturday netted us a total of 44 cents, while Sunday added another 17 cents to the pot. The only coin of interest was a 1944 wheat penny. I guess that’s not too bad, huh?

Good Night and Good Hunting!
