No So Happy Birthday

Yesterday was a rough day for Henry (and Meg). He was sad in the morning and asked to go upstairs to sleep. That was an odd request for Henry. He slept until just before his friends came (Meg woke him up for his party). At that point she realized he had a fever, he went back to bed, but his friends still came over for his party. Henry came down for a little bit of his party, but wasn't himself at all and slept throughout most of the afternoon. No one had any cupcakes. :(

Let's hope that's the worst birthday for him for some time!

He seems to be doing much better this morning. Now we're worried this thing is moving on to Meg.

Yesterday I rounded up quite a bit of coin.

481 small dollars and 58 half dollars produced a proof dollar (2007S Madison). That's the second Madison proof dollar I've found. Coincidentally I found another, in much better condition, at the same bank in January. It is tied for my rarest small dollar coin, 2,002,812 were minted. I've got to find a way to find more dollar coins, finding these proofs feels pretty cool.

3,080 quarters yielded three Canadians, one US dime, one UK 5 pence (1980) and one UAE 1 Dirham.

4,350 dimes rounded up thirty Canadians, one UK 5 pence and one French ½ franc. Bummer, not finding any silver dimes in this batch; that's a lot of dimes to go through and not find one.

1,800 nickels had one War Time (1943P) and three Canadians (1 Ni).

5,700 pennies found me thirty-five Canadians, twenty-eight Canadians, four US dimes, one Trinidad and Tobago 1¢ and one Euro 1¢.
