Lately Henry has begun to string a couple of words together. This morning Meg told me that while she was checking her e-mail Henry came up to her, handed her the remote and said, "Thomas, please" (or more accurately, "Tteh, pwease"). His manners are appreciated, but it wasn't time for TV.

Last night the way home, in the evening and on my way to work I searched some coin.

4,000 nickels turned up three War Times (2 x 1943P, 1943S), fifteen Canadians (3 Ni), two Bermuda 5¢ and one Bahamas 5¢. That breaks me out of my little War Time nickel slump.

9,000 pennies were pretty good to me. I them was sixty-one Wheats and forty Canadians. In the Wheats were three mint marked 1930's pennies. That's a good run for me, usually I'm doing well if I find one of those. I also found a new penny for my album, the 2009D Rail Splitting. The Wheats were:

1918, 1919, 1927, 1935, 1935S, 1936, 1936S, 1939S, 1940(4), 1941(2), 1942(3), 1944(5), 1944D, 1944S, 1945(4), 1946(2), 1947(2), 1948, 1949, 1950D, 1951, 1951D, 1951S, 1952(2), 1952D, 1953(2), 1953D(4), 1955, 1955D, 1956, 1956D(4), 1957(4), 1957D(2), 1958D(2)

Found: 1 quarter (at BJ's)

Since I know it's something your family enjoys doing together I thought you might like to read this

it never hurts to be well informed but there's obviously no need to panic or avoid goats!

That's good advice. Most farms we've been to have hand washing stations right there. Right now Henry's pretty good about it because he likes playing in the water from the faucet.
