A Million?

Last night Henry gave Meg and I another nice dinner out. My boss was right. One's got to take the baby out when you can because they only get more disagreeable for dinner out later. Henry was remembered by the waitress at our favorite, local BBQ restaunt and charmed her once again.

During a bank errand I found some loose halves. Fifty-six of them produced two 90% silver halves (2 x 1964) and one 40% silver half (1967). Not too bad I say. I always feel less worried about spending money from dinner when I find half the money in silver beforehand.

I also rounded up 4,150 hand rolled pennies. They yielded twenty-two Wheats, forty-four Canadians, one US dime and one UK new penny. The Wheat breakdown was:

1920(2), 1936, 1941(3), 1942, 1944(2), 1945(2), 1946(2), 1948(2), 1950, 1951, 1951D, 1955, 1956, 1957

He must be a real head-turner for a waitress who sees hundreds of faces to remember him. ;-)
