The Tree

Last night Meg, Henry and I decorated the tree. Henry was bit counter productive to the effort, but it was great to have him there with us. He was very excited about the lights. Keeping him away from them and the decorations is going to be continual problem for this season. I think we might have to take the tree down on the 26th. Mom and Dad might just about have it by then! Right now we're hoping he doesn't realize that the stand has water in it and are pushing off putting any presents under the tree. Why add to the temptations?!

My coins weren't too exciting.

50 small dollars didn't have anything.

720 quarters had one US nickel.

550 dimes produced one Canadian and one US penny.

440 nickels had nothing.

7,000 pennies turned up twenty-six Wheats, thirty Canadians, one Euro 1¢, eight US dimes and one plastic penny. The Wheats were:

1929, 1939, 1940, 1942, 1945(3), 1946(3), 1947D, 1951(2), 1952, 1953D(3), 1955, 1955D, 1956D(4), 1958D(3)
