Brrrr ... Andy Williams!

It was a good weekend for us. It started off well on Friday when we had two friends and their kid over for supper. Henry and his friend had some crazy fun running our house while the adults ate Chinese take-out. They also brought over a train table that Henry has volunteered to watch for a few months while our friends move. Saturday began with a sour note as Henry was not happy to have his haircut. He started crying for "Mama" as soon as we walked in and didn't stop until his cut was over (in five minutes). Things improved for Henry when he got a "guilt gift" (a $1 car at Target) for his torture and got to see Nana and Finbar for a couple of hours. That evening Henry was totally enthralled with PBS's airing of The Very Best of the Andy Williams Christmas Shows. He loved the singing, joined in a bit and danced in front of the TV. We'll have to get him some cheap Best of Andy Williams Christmas CD soon! Henry enjoyed the snow on Sunday too! Just enough for him to play in and say, "brrr!"

This week's halves were better than last week, but still not so hot. 8,000 of them turned up two 90% silver halves (2 x 1964), sixteen 40% silver halves (2 x 1966, 3 x 1967, 9 x 1968D, 2 x 1969D) and one proof half (1985S).
