The good news today is that Hazel seems to be doing better. She was still really tired this morning, but her fever wasn't present like it had been for the past three mornings. We're really hoping that's this the end of sickness (for this week, anyway). It's really difficult to see her so achy.

Lately Henry's been trying to spell a lot with some encouragement from Meg and I. I've been trying to get him to read a menu a bit and read Men vs. Women on bathroom doors. It's not always entirely successful though. He told Meg and I that "N-O" spelled "off" and Meg that "L-I-A-M" spelled our last name.

25 small dollars had nothing.

8,200 quarters rounded up one silver Washington (1963), seven Canadians, five US nickels, one Bermuda 25¢, one US dime and one gaming token.

7,550 dimes yielded five silver Rosies (2 x 1946, 1952, 1955, 1957), thirteen Canadians, one Swiss ½ franc and one UK 5 pence. The 1955 is only the second of this one I've found. It's the rarest of the Roosevelt's.

4,920 nickels produced two War Nickels (2 x 1943P), eleven Canadians (1 Ni), two US pennies, four US dimes and a key date Jefferson (1950).

11,650 pennies turned up fifty-five Wheats, eighty-six Canadians, six US dimes and one Euro 2¢.

1938, 1941(3), 1942D, 1944(9), 1945(3), 1946(4), 1948D(2), 1950, 1950D, 1950S, 1951, 1951D, 1952D(3), 1953(5), 1953D, 1953S, 1954D, 1955, 1955D, 1956D(2), 1957, 1957D(3), 1958

Found: 1 penny
