Save Friendly's!

Yesterday Meg e-mailed me this:

Forgot to tell you a cute one from Henry yesterday. He was spelling things and asking what words begin with, when he said "Dad starts with B." I wasn't sure if I heard him correctly, so I asked him if he meant "D" not "B." He said no, he meant "B" because you wrote "B" on your golf balls. I explained to him that the B was for Brian, because not everyone calls you Dad. :)

Henry has taught Hazel how to say "cookie." "Say 'cookie' Hazel," he says.

60 small dollars and 23 half dollars had seven 40% silver halves (1965, 3 x 1967, 2 x 1968D, 1969D).

6,440 quarters produced one silver Washington (1960D), eight Canadians and one Bahamas 1¢.

2,500 dimes yielded one proof (2002S) and four Canadians. It sure felt good to find that new proof. The dime proofs are tough to spot.

1,840 nickels rounded up just one Swiss 20 Rappen and four US pennies.

2,600 pennies got me nine Wheats, thirteen Canadians and one US dime.

1941, 1944, 1950S, 1952D, 1952S, 1957(2), 1958(2)
