This weekend felt like Spring. A snowy mix is coming tomorrow, but the weather was great for at least the two days that count, Saturday and Sunday. On Friday we had a good dinner out. Henry lasted a long time. On Saturday Meg went to a play her sister was in and Henry and I hung out with my sister and her two boys. We had a chaotic time at a restaurant, but everything was still fun. Today we met my parents for a quick tour of a nearby botanical garden. We all liked the indoor plants. Meg took some good pictures there and Henry only tore off one leaf!

I searched my weekly halves on Saturday. 8,000 halves turned up twenty-one 90% halves (19 x 1964, 2 x 1964D), fourteen 40% silver halves (1966, 2 x 1967, 9 x 1968D, 2 x 1969D), three mint set halves (2005D, 2007P, 2008P) and two medals. One of the medals said "Dad I Love You" and was looking back at me as I opened the box. It seemed appropriate as Henry went with me to pick up the coins. The other medal was in the same box and was some sort of religious medal. I even found a site where it is for sale.

Found: 9 pennies (1 at work, 5 at Shaw's, 2 at Sovereign Bank, 1 at Mobil), 1 dimes (at Sovereign Bank, a silver Rosie!, 1951), 2 quarters (1 at Sovereign Bank, 1 outside Friendly's)
