This past weekend we almost didn't go to my in-laws because of our colds, but we sure glad we did (Nonnie and Pops said, 'come anyway ... we want to see those kids!'). We met up with Nonnie and Pops at the Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum to go for a short ride on their historic passenger train. Beforehand we checked out their small museum. Henry was particularly impressed that there was a museum on a train and that the caboose had an "old time potty." Hazel was happy with some horse pictures she saw. The ride wasn't quite as scenic as we thought it might be, but that was no bother as the kids were very excited about the whole ride. Hazel went crazy for some real horses she saw on the way. Henry got sick in the evening, but some pancakes and juice seemed to cure that and we got to visit with grandparents and hear all about Nonnie and Pops' big trip.

73 small dollars had nothing.

8,000 half dollars produced one 90% silver half (1964), four 40% silver halves (1967, 2 x 1968D, 1969D) and two proof halves.

1,960 quarters rounded up one silver Washington (1964D), five Canadians and one US nickel.

1,650 dimes had just one US penny and one UK 5 pence.

840 nickels got me three Canadians (2 Ni).

1,800 pennies added twelve Wheats, fifteen Canadians and two US dimes to the stash.

1927, 1935, 1940, 1942(2), 1944, 1953D, 1956, 1956D(2), 1958(2)

Found: 1 penny, 1 dime, 1 quarter
