Happy Birthday ... Part I

This Meg, Henry and I traveled out to Meg's parents for the first part of his 2nd birthday festivities. Meg's mother made a cool car cake and we opened presents. We didn't sing to Henry as he seems not to like that for some reason. Henry was most interested in four little cars that were originally on his cake. Later in the evening Meg and I got to go see a movie together and in the morning we went out for breakfast. It was a good weekend for Henry. Lots of exciting times and even two days in a row with outside time!

I did pretty well with this weeks half dollars. 8,006 of them turned up five 90% silver halves (5 x 1964), forty-eight (2 x 1965, 7 x 1966, 23 x 1967, 9 x 1968D, 7 x 1969D) and two proof halves (2003S, 2004S).

I also searched 6,000 pennies. In them were forty-nine Wheats, fifty-three Canadians, four US dimes and one Barbados 1¢. The Wheats were:

19??, 1920, 1925, 1929, 1935, 1936, 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942(2), 1944(7), 1944S, 1946, 1946D, 1947, 1947D, 1950D, 1951, 1951D(3), 1952(2), 1952D(2), 1953D(2), 1954, 1956, 1956D(7), 1957, 1957D(3), 1958, 1958D

Found: 5 pennies (3 at work, 1 outside Bank of America, 1 at the Tiger Mart)
