Last night Meg made us a good looking meal (and tasty!), beet risotto. It had the color of candy. Henry "helped" spin the greens. While Meg and I were finishing up supper Henry played with his letters and numbers. I took a good video of him saying "O" and showing us various magnets. We don't really know why, but he seems to love letters and numbers. He woke up this morning and couldn't wait to finish his milk just to play with them.

I did fairly well with the coins I searched last night and this morning.

2,360 quarters produced six Canadians, one Bahamas 25¢ and one US nickel. Bummer, no silver quarter, again.

5,100 dimes turned up seven silvers (1940S, 1957, 1962D, 2 x 1963D, 1964, 1964D), three Canadians, two US pennies, one Cayman Islands 5¢ and one Malaysia 10 Sen. The 1940S is the first new Mercury dime I've found since November. the Malaysian coin is the first one from that country I've found in a roll.

3,320 nickels yielded two War Times (1943P, 1944P), eighteen Canadians, two US dimes and one Bahamas 5¢.

Found: 2 pennies (1 at Costco, 1 at Stop & Shop)
