It seems like everyday Henry has some new funny phrase or conversation with one of us. Lately he's been saying, "Why I not Think of That?" a lot. He also told me a few days ago that for Hazel's birthday Meg should make carrot cake and that Hazel would like babies (dolls) and cars.

Hazel is also quite a comedian. Her personality is really coming forth these days. She's still a pretty cranky kid (no one can scream and fuss quite like her), but she's also has seemed to really enjoy making us smile with her loud monsters sounds and dance moves.

My coins last night were so-so ... until I searched the pennies then things picked up.

270 small dollars, 4 large dollars, 960 half dollars had nothing.

2,920 quarters produced four Canadians, one East Caribbean States 25¢, three US nickels, 2 US pennies and one US dime.

3,000 dimes yielded two silver Rosies (1951, 1964D) and five Canadians.

2,160 nickels rounded up one War Time (1944P), six Canadians (1 Ni), one Euro 10¢, one German 50 Pfennig and one US penny.

3,100 pennies got me one Indian Head (1908), thirteen Wheats, sixteen Canadians and four US dimes. That's a pretty good Indian Head to find. I've found a couple others of that year, but only 32 million or so were minted. It was especially cool finding two in two weeks. I also found in this mix another example of my rarest (by mintage) Wheat penny, the 1931D. It is not in better condition than the first copy, but it was still cool to find another ... I just really wish it were a penny I need!

1931D, 1936, 194?, 1944, 1945(2), 1947, 1948, 1950, 1952, 1953, 1953D(2)
