Three To Go!

Despite much sporatic crabbyness from Henry, the rest of last weekend was great.

Meg and I took him to a new remodeled creamery/greenery near our house. We had a run-in inside of the animal pen during which three goats started nibbling on Meg's pant leg at the same time a donkey was nibbling mine. Two animals escaped a little as well. It was one funny moment. I wished we could have captured it on video, but we were too busy escaping danger! At the place we also had some ice cream. Unfortunately it wasn't homemade.

On Sunday I took Henry shoe shopping. My old sneakers were pathetic and I desperately needed new ones ... months ago! He did well. After that we picked up Meg and went to a nearby park. Henry rode on the swings and played in the sand box. He was a bit unsure about the feel of the sand, but didn't want to go when we decided to leave.

Last night I searched a bunch of coin. It didn't go so well, except for the dimes!

2,000 quarters turned up just one Canadian and a Philippine 1 Piso.

3,000 dimes yielded three silver Rosies (1947S, 1949D, 1962D), five Canadians and two US pennies. With that 1947S I now have just three more silver Rosies to find before I complete my album! The 1949D is a pretty rare variety as well. I found all three silver dimes in the same roll.

1,200 nickels produced just a Singapore 20¢.

5,000 pennies weren't so good, for Wheats anyway. In them I only found ten Wheats, twenty-three Canadians, one Bermuda 1¢, one Euro 1¢ (Ireland) and two US dimes. The Wheats were:

1939, 1941, 1946(3), 1949S, 1955D(2), 1957D(2)

Found: 13 pennies (3 outside McDonald's, 1 at Sovereign Bank, 1 at Border's Books, 1 at Costco, 1 outside work), 2 nickels (1 outside work, 1 in our backyard), 5 dimes (1 outside McDonald's, 1 outside work), 1 quarter
