I admit I'm a coin roller. My father collected and rolled
coins, my mother would roll coins, and my sister rolled
coins. Just last week Deb said she was rolling a jar
of coins ... so that makes us a family of coin rollers.

The husband joked and called me Mrs. Midas
while I was drinking coffee and rolling. I asked him
if he remembered the song Midas Touch and he didn't.
I found this YouTube video of the original version of
the song and played it for him. Now it's stuck in my head.
