Illinois quarter update

A little over a year ago I blogged about the then new Illinois quarter. Christine, blogger, former Illinoisan, and owner of my web host, Blogomania, left a comment on my post that she liked the Illinois design.

Now, today, I got a comment from Thom Cicchelli, the artist who designed the Illinois quarter. In the comment, he offers to sign a quarter for Christine. Wow! What a cool gesture. Needless to say, I forwarded the message to Christine so she can contact him if she wants to.

Two things worth noting here: One, you gotta love ego surfing. Not that that's what Thom was doing, necessarily. But, something brought him here. And, two, you gotta love blog comments. For all the junk comments I've gotten in recent months, it's times like this that make me glad I haven't closed old comments.
