Last night Meg and I took a break from TV watching and played Scrabble. It was a good idea of Meg's and we're definitely going to have to do it more. With Henry vegging out in from of the TV is sometimes the only thing we feel like doing. He can really tire us out. Hopefully we set aside a day or two every week to do something similar.

I searched a small amount of coin, mainly this morning.

2,000 dimes produced three Canadians and one UK 5 pence.

1,520 nickels yielded two Canadians (1 Ni) and one Thai 1 Baht.

3,400 pennies turned up twenty-one Wheats, thirty Canadians and one US dime. With these pennies I passed the 1.5 million mark! The Wheats were:

1928, 1934, 194?, 1942, 1944, 1945, 1947(2), 1949, 1950, 1952D, 1953D, 1955(2), 1956D(2), 1957, 1957D, 1958D(2)

Found: 3 pennies (1 at Stop & Shop, 2 at work), 1 nickel (at Stop & Shop)
