Happy Birthday!

Today is my wife's birthday! Happy Birthday, Meg! Now that Henry is around such celebrations are a lot of fun. There is so much to celebrate and so much can happen in a year these days. It's fun buying cards for Meg (and others) from Henry. I can't wait until we are at the store together deciding on gifts.

Last night I just searched a big bunch of pennies. The results were not so hot. 10,000 pennies yielded fourteen Wheats, sixty-six Canadians, two US dimes, two Bermuda 1¢, two UK pennies and one plastic toy penny. My Wheat find rate for January has been way down. It is almost half my usual average. Could a big Wheat hoard be just around the corner? The Wheats were:

1909, 1936, 1937(2), 1941, 1944(2), 1946, 1948, 1950D, 1951, 1952, 1956(2)

Found: 1 foreign coin (an Irish penny at Burger King ... very strange)

Was that an old Irish coin, or one of the new Euros?

Many happy returns to your wife too. Any idea what Meg is going to choose as a gift?

One of the old Irish coins. It was one odd find.

I think Meg's going to get a purse.
