Danger of Essence

This morning as I was putting a couple of trash bags into our garage and I noticed that our small gas can had "Danger of Essence" printed on it. I thought that was a funny mistranslation.

Last night Henry was a bit cranky. I gave him a bath and that went well. He didn't fuss at all during it. Afterwards I had a trying time feeding him, but I did get to see him playing a bit with a toy. Now he really enjoys touching and holding his little toys. He rewarded us with a record breaking sleep of nine hours!

I searched a lot of coins after he went to bed and some more this morning.

Two rolls of small dollars (50 coins) turned up one mint set coin, 2005D. Unfortunately I already found that one this week.

10,000 halves (ten boxes) produced four 90% silver halves (1952D, 1961, 1963D, 1964), twenty 40% silver halves (2 x 1965, 2 x 1966, 4 x 1967, 10 x 1968D, 2 x 1969D), one proof half (1976S), one mint set half (2003P), and one plated half. Nine of the ten boxes had silver in them. Not much in most, but only one skunk box is great for me. Usually about half of the boxes produce. The 1961 Franklin is a nice addition to my album.

The quarters I searched were disappointing. I looked through 6,440 of them and only found ten Canadians, one Cayman Islands 25¢, and one French franc. I was hoping for a silver quarter of course ... oh well.

300 hand rolled dimes didn't turn up anything.
