Is that Iggy Pop?

Last night was a wild night at our house. I took Henry's shirt off after dinner because he got so much food on it. He then had a lot of fun running around a being crazy. We got some great shots and videos from it all.

Before the chaos began, Henry enjoyed his new sippy cup that has an integrated straw.

Releasing terror!

No encores, please.

After show, bear naked wrestling.

This morning his chatty, full energy self picked up where he left off last night. Hopefully his day at the children's museum tires him out for his nap.

I did pretty well last night with my coins.

5,520 quarters turned up three silver Washingtons (1942, 1954, 1964), eleven Canadians, one Bermuda 25¢, five US nickels, one US penny (a 1953D wheat) and one washer.

4,450 dimes yielded two silver Rosies (1953D, 1964D), six Canadians and a Swiss ½ franc. In the mix was a 2009P dime. That's one I needed. They should be rather rare as only 96.5 million were minted. That's one fourth the amount minted in 2008 and one tenth the amount minted in 2007.

920 nickels produced four Canadians (2 Ni). I also found one key Jefferson, the 1949S, and what might be a double clipped nickel.

4,200 pennies had twenty-three Wheats, twenty-eight Canadians, two UK pennies (1971, 1997) and two US dimes. The Wheats were:

1929, 1937, 1941, 1944(5), 1945, 1946, 1947, 1948, 1948D, 1940, 1952D, 1953D, 1955(3), 1957, 1957D, 1958D(2)

Found: 2 tokens (both NH highway tokens, at the Shell)

Simply adorable. That was rhythm, I expected to just hear banging but you definitely hear a pattern.

At this rate 2009 nickel should find you by fall. It is an odd year when I'm finding more 2009 dollars than dimes or nickels.

I agree. I've found tons of 2009 Sacagawea dollars, which kind of stinks because I'm still looking for 2007 and 2008 Sacagawea dollars and new rolls of them aren't selling for crazy prices like nickels and dimes.
