Yesterday Meg met up with a college buddy to go the science museum. She has two kids near Henry's age so it works out really well. They had a lot of fun there even though Henry insists that they are "Mom's friends." Henry was particularly into gears, pulleys, planets, dinosaurs and the escalator. Hazel did pretty well there too Meg said. I wish I could have joined them.

249 small dollars produced one Canadian $1.

3,600 quarters yielded one silver Washington (1942), one Canadian, one UK 10 pence and one US nickel.

1,800 dimes had just six Canadians.

1,040 nickels turned up two War Times (1943P, 1943S), ten Canadians (1 Ni), one US penny and one Greek 1 Drachma (1967).

5,250 pennies rounded up twenty-five Wheats, thirty-three Canadians, two US dimes and one Euro 1¢.
