Yesterday Henry told Meg, "I want something not good for me" again along with "Why we not go to Dunkin' Donuts?" He's a young junk food junkie I guess. Meanwhile we think Hazel's up to three words, "Dad," "Henry" and "Mom." Each of them doesn't sound exactly right, but we're pretty sure she's saying something for each of them that's different ... or maybe we're imagining things?

I did OK with last night's coins.

20 half dollars had nothing.

2,280 quarters produced four Canadians, one Bermuda 25¢, one Arnold Palmer token/magnet and one Red Sox token (pretty odd to get two sports tokens in one night).

2,750 dimes turned up two silver Rosies (1957, 1964), six Canadians and four US pennies. In the mix was also a new modern dime for me, the 2009D. I knew this one would turn up at some point so I wasn't trying too hard to find it, but it certainly took a while. 49.5 million were minted.

680 nickels had just one Canadian (1 Ni).

3,500 pennies yielded twenty-nine Wheats, twenty-four Canadians, one US dime and one Bahamas 1¢.

1925, 1936, 1941(2), 1944(3), 1944D, 1945(2), 1946, 1949, 1950, 1951, 1953, 1955, 1956D, 1958, 1958D

Found: 1 penny, 1 dime
