The Chipper

A couple of days ago the chipper finally came to our house. It was during the day so Meg took this picture from the house and called me to let me know all but one little stump was gone. It has been six months since this stuff came down from the ice storm. We've been looking at it and dealing with it for far to long. Our street looks great!

On Monday while doing errands Meg and I got a little car for Henry. After a Memorial Day cook-out we put the car together. Henry jumped in the main body of it as soon as Meg opened the box and kept trying to get into the thing while I put it together. Assemblying it with Henry around and tired wasn't our brightess idea, but he seems to enjoy the thing and it was fun getting it for him.

This week just getting coin to search has felt like a bit of a victory. It's just one of those weeks. Last night's coin were fairly good.

Six large dollars, fourteen small dollars and five half dollars didn't produce anything. These six large dollars did bring me to 1,000 searched, however.

4,360 quarters turned up one silver Washington (1964), two Canadians, one UK 10 pence and a US dime.

3,050 dimes yielded three silver Rosies (1951, 1952, 1964D), eight Canadians and one UK 5 pence.

1,680 nickels had four Canadians (1 Ni) and one UAE 50 fil. One of the earlier Jeffersons I found was key, 1949S.

5,250 pennies produced sixteen Wheats, forty-one Canadians, two US dimes, one Bermuda 1¢, one MBTA token (still worth $1.25!), one Russian 50 Kopek and one Phillipino 10 Sentimo. The Wheats were:

1929S, 1944, 1944D, 1953, 1953D, 1955, 1956D(6), 1957, 1957D(2), 1958D

Found: 1 penny (at the Getty gas station), 1 foreign coin (a Ecuador 5 Centimos in Stop & Shop)

I do like that first snap.. something "rustic" about it, and the colour of the flowers sets it off nicely.

I like the big machines, did you get to keep some mulch?

James ... yup! I like the flowers on the bushes a lot myself, too.

Man ... nope, but I did consider it. I thought about using it for a play area we'll be making for Henry since it is all natural, etc.
