Pool Time!

Yesterday Meg got Henry a small pool at Target. It was a big success. The weather was perfect for it and Henry always enjoys new entertainment. I wish I could have been home to help set it up and see him enjoy it.

This picture is good proof that he was in need of a pool. Lately he's also sat in a couple of puddles on our driveway.

Last night at my usual Tuesday night pickup a teller had some good saves for me. In all there was one Canadian penny, four Canadian nickels (3 Ni), one Canadian dime (1947, 80% silver), one Canadian quarter and a Cayman Island 10¢. There was also one big "coin," a drink coaster moulded just like a 1972 quarter front and back. The last one was pretty funny. It'll be on my work desk. All was much appreciated.

After putting Henry to bed and during the commute this morning, I searched the coin.

4,640 quarters produced one silver Washington (1959), twelve Canadians, one Bermuda 25¢, one US dime and one US nickel.

3,500 dimes yielded two silver Rosies (2 x 1964), seven Canadians, one UK 5 pence, one Bermuda 10¢, one East Carribean States 10¢ and one Singapore 10¢.

2,600 nickels turned up two War Times (2 x 1943P), eleven Canadians (5 Ni), six US dimes and nine US pennies.

Lastly, 6,000 pennies had in them twenty-six Wheats and forty-two Canadians. The Wheats were:

1917, 1919D, 1940(2), 1941S, 1944(2), 1944D, 1944S, 1945, 1947, 1950, 1950D, 1951(2), 1952, 1953D, 1954D, 1955(2), 1956, 1957(2), 1957D, 1958D(3)

Found: 1 penny (at Hess)

I'll have to suggest that new way of cleaning toddlers to my Brother... what type of detergent should he use when washing his child in the dishwasher? ;-)

Not sure. Been looking for "no tears" dish detergent, but haven't found any. ;)
