When a guy hits a totter and pulls a fast 3.50 clad kicking through the chips, Hey! That there was a damned old SLQ!

I still smoke, and lately thats a habit I'm trying to deal with...pissing away a Walker Half everyday on a pack of ready rolls makes a guy feel guilty...We all know how hard it is to find one of those! DAMN! I'd have 365 Walker halfs/yr if I could give this up! Now THATS a stack!

Fisher F70, Fisher F2, 2017 clad: $52.61, Silver coins: 18, Indian heads: 1, Wheaties: 37, Gold rings: 1, Silver rings: 3, Total clad: $286.80, (after paying off the F2), Silver coins: 38, Gold rings: 4
