Buzz Cut

This weekend has gone pretty well for us. On Friday Meg's sister and brother-in-law watched Henry. This allowed us to go out to dinner and get some dessert. A two location date-night! That hasn't happened in a while. Henry was behaved well at home ... or so we were told. ;) On Saturday I went blueberry picking with my brother-in-law and father. We went to our secret spot on public lands for all-you-can-pick. While we picked Henry was watched by my mother, with his two cousins. Meg and her sister enjoyed some nice times by themselves. In the afternoon I took Henry for haircut. It was a very trying experience. He looks great with his short, summer cut, but it was some rough going. At one point two people had to hold him down while a third trimmed around his ears. After the trauma we went to Target to get some cars.

I did pretty well with my halves this weekend. 8,008 half dollars produced thirteen 90% silver halves (1940, 1943, 1946, 1949, 1951S, 1958D, 1962D, 5 x 1964, 1964D), twenty-one 40% silver halves (3 x 1966, 9 x 1967, 8 x 1968D, 1969D), four proofs (1971S, 1980S, 1985S, 1998S) and three mint set halves (1987D, 2002D, 2003D). The variety was fun to find!

Found: 4 pennies (1 at Target, 3 at White Hen Pantry)
