It seems that Fall is coming. Yesterday I noticed more trees changing color on the ride home and when I got home Henry was dressed in his fall clothes (a flannel shirt and socks!). He was eager to get outside and try his new shoes out while Meg got ready for her MNO (moms' night out). We took a little walk, with him walking, and played outside a bit. He was really good for me throughout the evening. There was a tiny bit of worry about Mom being gone, but it wasn't too bad and he amused himself very well while I did the dishes.

Last night's coins were fairly good.

2,000 quarters produced three Canadians and one US nickel.

4,000 dimes turned up two silver Rosies (1962D, 1964), thirteen Canadians, three Cayman Islands 1¢, one Bermuda 10¢ and one old NH highway token. The NH token is a new type for me. I've found the newer ones before, but not a small one like this. It's slightly smaller than a dime, silver-ish and stamped with an "A." It was worth 10¢ and the type was used 1955-1977.

2,000 nickels rounded up fourteen Canadians (5 Ni) and one Bermuda 5¢ Bummer, no silver nickel, again!

11,000 pennies had one Indian Head (1896), sixty-two Wheats, eighty-two Canadians, five US dimes, one Euro 1¢ and one washer. The Indian Head is pretty beat-up, but it was fun to find. The Wheats were:

1926, 1934, 1935(2), 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1944(5), 1944D, 1945, 1946(2), 1946D, 1947(2), 1949S, 1950, 1951D, 1952(4), 1952D(2), 1952S, 1953D, 1955, 1955D, 1956(7), 1956D(6), 1957(2), 1957D(4), 1958, 1958D(2)

Found: 3 pennies (at work)
