Sorry to here Ian had a difficult time. ("Mind the
Gap" Ian).

Had a blast with the 2's here in Miami.  I spent them everywhere I went.
Observations:

- The latins (my girlfriend is Puerto Rican) loved them. Many comments
to the effect "Wow, great, I'm gonna give these to my kids and tell them
to save 'em.

- Several people checked them to be sure they were not counterfiet
(They're two dollar bills folks)

- Kinda fun watching people trying to figure out where to put them in
the cash drawers.

- Lots of questions like "why are you spending them?" (Explained: look
at the back, declaration of Independence, 1776, July fourth, get it?)
   They still make these?
   Can I buy a couple from you?

- Many people getting "authorization" to accept them.

- All in all well received.

Still spending them,  Kevin R.

Spent a bunch of dateless Buffaloes at 7-11s and other stores. Also put a whole
bunch of 1950s and 1940s wheat cents back into circulation. It was kind of fun.
