Pipe Fixed



Yesterday our pipe was fixed and today we had showers at home ... sure glad that is resolved! It was expensive, but I'm trying to ignore that and just be thankful it wasn't more, didn't destroy anything and was fixed pretty quickly.

Last night Meg had yoga. It sounded fun. She's taking classes across the street. They are given by the town. They have quite a few classes available, someday I might even take a golf class from them or join Henry for a fishing class. I hope she continues with it and the cooking classes she's been enjoying.

I searched a whole lot of pennies last night and did pretty well. 12,900 pennies turned up seventy Wheats, ninety-five Canadians, thirteen US dimes, one Bermuda 1¢, one Bahamas 1¢ and one UK penny. One of the US dimes was a silver Rosie, a 1964D! That's the second time I've found a silver dime in a penny roll. I also found two pennies I don't find very often, the 1909 VDB and the 1940D. I've found some good ones recently, but no new ones. I feel close. The Wheats were:

1909 VDB, 1935, 1937(2), 1939, 1940(3), 1940D, 1941, 1942(3), 1944(5), 1945(2), 1946(7), 1947D, 1949, 1950, 1950S, 1951(2), 1951D, 1952(3), 1952D, 1953(2), 1953D(2), 1953S(2), 1955(3), 1956(4), 1956D(5), 1957(2), 1957D(5), 1958D(4)

Sorry about the expensive pipe fix. It would've been funny to take out all the pennies and say, "All I have is pennies. Is that fine?"

Are you searching the Cents for "copper per 1982"? I don't see that in your stats. If not you should think about doing so, or at least sell them to people. You can get 1.3x or so for them rather than sending them to the bank.

Man, yup, I've been tempted to do that.

Barry ... I've thought about that, but sorting out the coppers would add a lot of time to my process and getting rid of the leftovers would add even more time (even with a Ryedale, I'd have to get rid of the 80% of the coins).
