    I've just realised that even the above comment is out of date. I use an app so rarely have my credit card on me. How can you decide ends with an app? ...!!

    I have a great one from USSR with head of Lenin[/QUOTE]

    I had one with the head of Trotsky on it until someone put an ice pick through it.

    And what's that strange clunking noise from the washing machine? Ah! must have left my coin(s) in the pocket of my shorts. Possibly my whistle and scorecards, too.

    Anyone for a credit card flip?
    I have a coin toss app on my watch. I've never used it.

    In my card wallett is a plastic "coin" white on one side and Black on the other. A lot easier to see than the 1973 half penny I used to use.

    I move house in the Summer, and I'm getting the hairy eyeball from Mrs to get rid of the coins I still have. My argument that they will be goodwill gifts wherever we end up is thus far not working.
    Any chance you could post pics? I might be willing to take one off your hands.

    I've done this, and am very glad I still have my BLK shorts with zippers.

    At the time, the decision was made by the society to order BLK shorts to mirror those used by panel refs here. As someone who has lost many coins and writing utensils from other pockets (and refuses to stick a pen/pencil in his sock), they are a godsend.

    Actually I do stick a pencil in each sock prior to every game...... they are never visible but are accessible in case of emergency.

    I think only once in many years have I actually had recourse to the sock!
