Show Us Your Belly

Last night after supper Henry showed me one of his new tricks, showing his belly. Meg can really get him going by asking him to, "show us your belly!" He lefts up his shirt and laughs a lot, even without us tickling him there. It's adorable. We also showed him our bellies which made him laugh. I tried to get a picture of him doing it, but it was too late and the mood had passed. Maybe I'll have better luck tonight.

Last nights coin hunting turned up a lot of weird stuff.

20 Large dollars and 18 half dollars were skunks.

2,800 quarters produced four Canadians, one US penny and a Samoa 10 Sene. The Samoan coin is a new one for me. It's a tiny island nation north and east of New Zealand. There are less than 200,000 residents and the primary export used to be taro. (The plant is on the reverse of the coin) The coin I found is worth 3¢.

5,000 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1962), seventeen Canadians (one was a 1968, 50% silver dime), two Bermuda 10¢, one Panama 10¢, one Ecuador 10¢ and one Swiss ½ franc.

1,600 nickels had in them one dateless Buffalo, five Canadians (1 Ni), two US pennies and two Swiss 20 Rappen.

4,000 pennies turned up twenty-two Wheats, twenty-eight Canadians and one UK penny (1988). The Wheats were:

1916, 1919, 1934, 1941, 1942(2), 1944, 1944D, 1945, 1946, 1947S, 1949(2), 1951, 1951S, 1953D, 1956(3), 1957D(2), 1958

Found: 7 pennies (2 at Shaw's, 4 at Stop & Shop, 1 at Citgo), 1 nickel (at Stop & Shop), 2 dimes (at Stop & Shop), 1 quarter (at Stop & Shop) and 1 foreign coin (a Canadian dime at Shaw's)

Now, that is such a freaky coincidence! Our Henry also has an obsession with "seeing" people's bellies... he loves to slap them playfully... and we thought he was just weird! ;-)
