Well, it is unused change in that it tends to be emptied out of the coin purse at intervals and end up in a fancy can, so it's usually out of circulation. I guess I can carry a little baggie of those coins with me and when I'm in a store that has one of those change trays with the self-pay register, I can off-load it.

It took some ingenuity to re-do the brace that was included with the ceiling junction box for that light fixture, but the original wouldn't fit so I finally managed a different one (with leftover stuff from putting up a curtain rod, I think) and drilling a couple of extra support screws through the side into the joist. I had to tie it into the old brace left from the brittle junction box that I removed.

Between the fence construction and the installation of that ceiling fixture, at one point it felt like I had every screw driver I own sitting on various horizontal surfaces around the kitchen and garage (and I have a LOT of screw drivers - my own plus what came from Dad's house).

That light is a thing of beauty after all of that work.
