Go Henry, Go!

This weekend was very busy. Even though I took Friday off of work to make it a three day weekend, it still seemed crazy.

On Friday I sanded the trim in the playroom with my Dad. We made a lot of good progress. While we did that my mother watched Henry and gave Meg some much needed alone time. Having help for just three hours sure goes a long way. The next day we left for another wedding. Meg and I have been to a lot of these together, probably about twelve of them. This one allowed us to spend some good time with our siblings. Henry got a break from us too! He showed all sorts of stuff to the family. Although he's not quite crawling yet, his skills are impressive. We put him on the floor 12 feet or so from som toys and had people watch him make his way to the toys.

I did some coin roll hunting before we left to go to a wedding.

6,000 halves, six boxes, produced one 90% silver half (1964), two 40% silver halves (1967, 1968D), and two mint set halves (2005D, 2006D). Bummer ... at least it wasn't six skunk boxes.

5,050 dimes, two boxes and one roll, yielded four silver dimes (1953D, 1954D, 1957, 1964D) and two Canadians.

Six rolls of quarters, 240 coins, and one roll of pennies, 50 coins, turned up just one Canadian.

At a bank I also picked up a brand new small dollar, the Andrew Jackson 2008P. I actually got 1,000 of them as the whole box was the same coin, but I only need one. :( It's a nice looking presidential dollar coin. The portrait is the same as the one on the $20 bill. I've always thought it looked a bit spooky. He looks like a villian just unmasked by Scooby Doo and friends at the end of an episode.

Found: 4 pennies (1 at Stop & Shop, 1 outside Walgreens, 2 at Hannaford's), 1 dime (at Stop & Shop), and two foreign coin (a Euro 2¢ at Stop & Shop, a Canadian dime at Sovereign Bank)

Come on! Don't leave me in suspense! What was the "Go Henry, Go!" title for??!?!

I've just found an old "whoopie cushion" at home, and I can't wait to give it to my Henry to see what he makes of it! ;-)
