Tires & Ferberization

This weekend Meg and I took the plunge and decided to Ferberize Hazel. Her sleeping habits had been getting unbearable and so we felt it was time. The first night was rough. She cried for two hours and then talked to herself for forty minutes. After that she hasn't looked back much. The past two nights have been no problem and she's even been taking naps upstairs by herself. We sure hope this continues.

I also spent a lot of time dealing with a flat tire. It was a lot more complicated than I expected the situation to be because it took a while to get the old tire off and the store was extremely crowded and slow. Despite the problem, however, I did get some Christmas shopping done.

8,000 halves turned up six 90% silver halves (1951D, 1963, 4 x 1964), twenty 40% silver halves (2 x 1966, 14 x 1967, 3 x 1968D, 1969D) and one proof half (1980S). That's pretty good for these days.

I finally finished up all of the pennies I had. 14,050 of them had seventy-three Wheats, ninety-eight Canadians and three US dimes. That was one big batch. There wasn't anything too exciting. The Wheats were:

191?, 1914, 1918, 1934, 1935, 1937, 1939, 1939S, 1940, 1941(7), 1941D, 1942(3), 1944(4), 1944D, 1945, 1946(4), 1948(2), 1949, 1950D, 1951D(2), 1952(3), 1952D(2), 1953(4), 1953D(2), 1953S, 1954D(4), 1956(2), 1956D(3), 1957(3), 1957D(6), 1958(3), 1958D(2)

Found: 1 penny, 3 dimes, 1 quarter
