The weekend was pretty good for us. We could have done with out the weird late September humidity, but oh well.

On Friday we tried a new restaurant. I don't think we'll go back to that one. Hazel's a bit tough at restaurants these days, but even discounting that the food wasn't so good and the portions were small. On Saturday morning I took the kids to my parents to play, have lunch and pick out pumpkins from Grandpa's garden. Henry's pretty excited about the pumpkins. That evening I tried to shop for more Henry clothes. It didn't go too well. Sunday brought us all to church. Henry did well at church school and Hazel did well in the nursery (Meg was there with her the whole time). I took both of the kids the playground after Hazel's nap. They both did really well there. Henry even gave up a toy for a small girl when I asked him to. They were both excited by a small block with ten on it that Hazel found. After that we went clothes shopping at Kohls. I had to steer two carts there by myself, but the kids had fun "racing" in them and I picked up lots of good clothes, cheap! We capped off our fun, late afternoon with a trip to Pet Smart. Both of them thought that was great. At home Meg made some sweet smelling fresh tomato sauce that I'm anxious to try.

73 small dollars didn't have anything.

8,010 half dollars produced eight 40% silver halves (1965, 2 x 1967, 4 x 1968D, 1969D).

1,400 quarters had six Canadians, two US nickel and one US dime.

1,950 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1957) and one US penny.

1,520 nickels turned up one dateless Buffalo (first Buffalo since August 22nd), four Canadians (1 Ni) and what I think is a 1963 Proof nickel.

15,050 pennies rounded up eighty-two Wheats, eighty-two Canadians, three US dimes, one Trinidad and Tobago 1¢, one UK penny and two Euro 2¢. The pennies I've searched lately have been light.

1930, 1935, 1937, 1938, 1940(2), 1941(3), 1941D, 1942, 1944(7), 1944S, 1945(6), 1946(2), 1947(2), 1948(3), 1949, 1950D, 1951, 1951D, 1952(4), 1952D(3), 1953, 1953D(5), 1953S, 1955(4), 1955D(2), 1956(6), 1956D(2), 1957(4), 1957D(5), 1958(5), 1958D(4)
