Henry's always full of funny quotes. Yesterday he told Meg that because Duck was going to come to our house in the mail truck we should get her a special car seat from Babies For Us (Babies R Us).

I didn't find too much coin yesterday (darn holidays!), but it was OK.

41 small dollars and 4 half dollars had nothing.

1,160 quarters produced two Canadians and one new modern one for me, the 2011P Olympic. Sometime ago I came across a new Canadian, the 2001 (no P). I don't immediately check these for new ones. That's one of the last Canadian quarters (clad, anyway) that I needed. Only about 8 million were minted. I still need a 1992 Manitoba.

750 dimes yielded six Canadians.

1,040 nickels rounded up one War Time (1943S), two Canadians (1 Ni), two US pennies, two Euro 5¢ (Portugal, Ireland), one Swiss 10 Rappen and one Greek 5 Drachmes. The Greek coin is a new type for me. Kind of neat to find this one in nickels, because it is significantly larger than a US nickel.

2,400 pennies got me ten Wheats, twenty Canadians, two US dimes and one Aruba 10¢ (kind of strange to find that one in some pennies).
