This morning Henry uttered a new word, "ha." It was in reference to his new helicopter. He said it multiple times. It's just in time for his 15 month check-up today at his new doctor, too! What sounds that rhyme with "ah" will he say next?

Last night's coin worked out fairly well.

Nine small dollars and three half dollars didn't turn up anything.

5,360 quarters produced one silver Washington (1963D), ten Canadians, three US nickels and one French franc (1964).

4,000 dimes yielded three silver Rosies (1946D, 1951, 1952), twelve Canadians and two US pennies. I really wish the 1946D were the 1946S, one I need for my albums. It is, however, a great upgrade to the one in my album. It's in really good shape.

1,200 nickels turned up two Canadians (1 Ni) and two US dimes.

5,200 pennies had twenty-six Wheats, forty-seven Canadians, three US dimes and one German 5 Pfennig. The German coin is a new variety for me. The Wheats were:

1936, 1938, 1940, 1941, 1944, 1946(5), 1947S, 1948, 1950, 1951, 1951D, 1952D, 1953(2), 1955D, 1956(3), 1957D(2), 1958D(2)

Found: 14 pennies (at Shaw's), 1 nickel (at Shaw's), 8 dimes (1 at the Mobil Mart, 7 at Shaw's), three foreign coins (2 Canadian quarters at Shaw's and a Charlie Horse arcade token)
