Today I finished regrouting our bathroom shower/tub. I had completed the removal of the old grout, some of it had already fallen out, a few weeks ago. Meg and Henry went were visiting Meg's parents and I took a vacation day to get this done. It took a long time, but it looks great.

It was great to have them back too. It sure felt strange not having them here last night. I kept thinking I was hearing Henry crying upstairs and would continually forget I didn't need to be quiet.

Last night I searched a big bunch of coin.

3,080 quarters turned up six Canadians and one US dime. In the mix was a nicely done, silver plated 1999P Delaware quarter. I thought at first it was a solid silver proof quarter, but it was not. :(

6,058 dimes yielded eight silver dimes (1942, 1952D, 1962D, 3 x 1963D, 2 x 1964D), ten Canadians, one UK 5 pence and one Bermuda 10¢. One roll had four silver dimes in it and that's my first Mercury dime in ages!

2,000 nickels produced one Buffalo (1925) and five Canadians (1 Ni). The date on the Buffalo is just barely readable without using Nic-A-Date.

2,500 pennies turned up ten Wheats, twenty Canadians, two US dimes and one Euro 2¢ (Spain). The Wheats were:

1919, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1944(2), 1946, 1952D, 1956D(2)

Found: 1 penny (outside the Mobil)
