In March of 2005 Joe Nienhuis and I embarked on a journey that has yet to come to an end. I have had numerous dealings with Joe over the years and even though we have never met I have come to think of him more as a friend than a sales rep at Monaco Rare Coins. Despite the fact that I am more than twice Joe’s age I sense that we have much in common. Two Alpha males! Better make that one, time has reduced me to Beta status. It is unlikely that I will ever visit California but were that to happen I would make it a point to look Joe up shake his hand and see if I could con him into buying me a hamburger and fries at Carl’s Junior! After all what are” friends” for?
