Here's a picture of Henry helping us spread mulch a few weeks back. It was good to see him use his little shovel to fill his wheelbarrow with mulch and then push it over to where we were spreading it. He isn't always entirely helpful, but we appreciate it.

This morning I left the living room briefly and when I came back Hazel had pulled herself up, grabbed my pen and started scribbling on a sheet a paper! It's the first time I've seen her do it. She's also using a fork a little bit.

2 large dollars, 502 small dollars and 24 halves had nothing.

800 quarters turned up one silver Washington (1964), two Canadians (one was the 2008 Bobsleigh, a new one for me), one US penny and a French franc. This silver quarter breaks my no-silver-quarter-streak.

1,000 dimes produced one silver Rosie (1959D), two Canadians and one US penny.

1,600 nickels had one War Time (1943P) and six Canadians (1 Ni).

11,550 pennies rounded up one proof penny (1996S), sixty-three Wheats, sixty-six Canadians, seven US dimes, one Euro 2¢, one Panama 1¢ and one Australian 1¢. The 1996S penny is now the rarest by mintage penny I've found, 2,525,265 were minted.

1919, 1930, 1938, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1944(4), 1945(9), 1946(5), 1946D, 1947(2), 1948, 1949(2), 1949D, 1950(2), 1951(2), 1951D(2), 1952(3), 1952D(4), 1953, 1953D, 1954D(2), 1955(3), 1955D, 1956D(4), 1957D(5), 1958(2)
