Big Truck Day

Yesterday Henry had a good time at the Zoo. Meg and he met his grandmother, grandfather and friend there. His favorite part, according to Meg, was a sprinkler park. I'm not sure why he loves these, but dreads baths. Today she and he are meeting my sister and her boys at Big Truck Day. On display will be multiple large vehicles for the boys to tour. Sounds like fun to me.

(Big Truck Day, actually Digger Day , didn't go entirely as planned. The event was a bit too loud for Henry's taste. Here's a picture she took that day. Perhaps it was the bad hair day that threw Henry off?)

Last night the coins were a bit dull.

4,320 quarters yielded just four Canadians.

2,400 dimes produced one silver Rosie (1964), four Canadians, two Bermuda 10¢, one Cayman Islands 5¢, one UK 5 pence and one Euro 1¢ (France, 2000).

1,000 nickels had three Canadians (1 Ni) and five US dimes.

3,000 pennies turned up seventeen Wheats, twenty-six Canadians, one Bermuda 1¢, one UK penny and one US dime. The Wheats were:

1913, 1929, 1935(2), 1944(4), 1951D, 1953D, 1956D(3), 1957, 1957D(2), 1958D

Found: 5 pennies (at Stop & Shop)
