Last night before going to the hair salon Henry and I went to a pet store. We had ten minutes to kill. He really liked it. We saw fish, birds, rodents and turtles. We'll have to spend more time there later and get to the lizards, dogs and cats. He didn't like the haircut so much. It came out better than the previous cut, but the experience was similar. :( His next cut might be a buzz cut at home.

Last night's coin was OK.

The best part about last night is that I finally got my hands on a decent amount of mixed small dollars. 1,500 produced two mint set dollars (2002P, 2005D) and three Canadians. I was hoping to find a proof dollar, but oh well.

4,440 quarters turned up one silver Washington (1941), four Canadians, one East Carribean States 25¢, one Bermuda 25¢ and one US penny. The 1941 quarter is a beauty.

1,150 dimes produced just two Canadians.

Likewise 480 nickels yielded two Canadians (1 Ni).

The pennies I searched were pretty good. In them was thirty-one Wheats and Canadians. The Wheats were:

1936(2), 1940, 1941, 1942, 1944, 1944D, 1945, 1946(3), 1947, 1948D, 1950(2), 1950D, 1951D, 1952D(2), 1953, 1953D(2), 1955, 1956, 196D, 1957, 1958, 1958D(3)

I found this nice foreign coin under a Coin Star machine. It's a new type for me, a 10 Sen piece from Malaysia.

Found: 2 pennies (at work), 3 nickels (at work), 1 foreign coin (a Malaysia 10 Sen at Shaw's)

Did you manage to work out what that picture was of? I was surprised when I found out, given my guesses, when I found one. ;-)
