Good Bath

Last night Meg and I gave Henry his best bath in ages. Yeah! Perhaps this fear of the tub is really on it's way out. I sure hope so. Now if only we could get him to be more agreeable in the evenings. He can really throw a strong fit when something doesn't go his way, lots of twisting, head throwing and crying, of course. Last night even a little TV didn't calm him down. Hope tonight (and all of today for Meg) goes a bit better.

I searched a big batch of pennies and did well. 12,950 pennies had seventy Wheats, ninety Canadians, three US dimes and one Bahamas 1¢. In the batch I found a new Wheat, the 1923S! It's the third rarest Wheat I've come across as only 8.7 million were minted. That one got me fist pumping! The Bahamas cent is a new variety for me as it is a bit older than the usual ones I find and is made of brass. The Wheats were:

1919D, 1920, 1923S, 1927, 1928, 1939(2), 1940, 1941, 1942(2), 1944(6), 1944D(2), 1945S, 1945(4), 1946(2), 1946D, 1947, 1948(2), 1949(3), 1950, 1951(3), 1951D, 1952(2), 1952D(3), 1953, 1953D(4), 1954D, 1955D, 1956(5), 1956D(7), 1957D(2), 1958, 1958D(3)

Found: 1 penny (at Sunoco), 1 dime (at Stop & Shop)

I thought that was one of our £1 coins for a moment!

I wish. I've only found one of those once here in the US ... at the airport in Boston.

Nice Bahamas cent like the on I found in late June. I can only assume people are coming from cheaper vacations in the Bahamas since it's been years since I seen Bahamas in change before this summer.
