It's been a busy couple of weeks for us. We've put up with a lot obstinate behavior and lack of naps, but we still got a lot done and had some good times. I finished painting the baby's room and put a new carpet in it. We're anxious to move all the furniture in (when we get it). Here are some good pictures we took recently.

Last week I did some coins; it just took me forever to get around to doing my write-up. Let's hope I'm a bit more timely in the future.

8,000 half dollars yielded twenty-nine 40% silver halves (1965, 3 x 1966, 6 x 1967, 12 x 1968D, 7 x 1969D) and one proof half (1981S).

5,360 quarters turned up ten Canadians, three US nickels, one US penny and one 50 Italian Lire (1985).

4,200 dimes had two silver Rosies (1946, 1960D), eight Canadians, one UK 5 pence, two Bermuda 10¢, one Mexican 10¢ and one US penny.

1,380 nickels produced three War Times (2 x 1943P, 1944P), three US dimes, one US penny and one UK penny. In the mix were also two key date Jeffersons (1949S, 1950).

9,350 pennies rounded up forty Wheats, ninety Canadians, two US dimes and one Barbados 1¢. The Wheats were:

1909 VDB, 1919, 1920, 1927, 1930, 1935S, 1940, 1941D, 1942, 1944, 1945, 1946(4), 1947(4), 1949, 1950D, 1951D, 1952, 1952D, 1953, 1954D, 1955(3), 1955D, 1956, 1956D, 1957(3), 1957D(3), 1958D(2)

Found: 8 pennies and 1 nickel
