Besides Hazel's sleeping we had a great long weekend. (That's a big besides because for three days in a row Meg got almost no sleep. :( Fortunately the last two nights haven't been better.) On Saturday we went to the park, went on a walk on the rail trail and then had a spontaneous dinner out at 50's retro diner. It was the first such meal we've had out in a long time and it went well. We'll definitely be going back to that place again with the kids. We followed things up with an apple cider making party at some friends of my in-laws on Sunday.

Monday I had off and spent more time visiting with family. Returning from the supermarket that night Henry spotted a free, large monster truck on the curb. It barely fit the trunk. It's one of those big battery powered riding vehicles you can buy at Toys 'R Us. The battery was removed and I was able to remove the drive mechanism completely to make a good push toy.

Yesterday my company held it's annual Golf Day at a course close to our home. I had my best game ever and am still feeling good about it.

I did better with last week's halves, but it still wasn't too hot. 8,000 halves produced six 90% silver halves (1941S, 1952, 1952D, 3 x 1964) and ten 40% silver halves (2 x 1966, 5 x 1967, 2 x 1968D, 1969D).

2,000 quarters turned up one silver Washington (1964).

2,700 dimes had four silver Rosies (1948, 1952, 1960D, 1961), eight Canadians and four US pennies.

1,200 nickels yielded four Canadians (2 Ni), two US pennies and one US dime.

Found: 2 pennies
