The weekend started a bit crazy for us. After a super day at new kid museum in Connecticut (new to our family anyway) Meg and the kids joined me at our local BBQ joint. It was good except Henry left Duck at his friend's house, 20 minutes away - we heard a lot about it. Henry and left from the restaurant (just about) to go get Duck. It was a "rescue mission." Henry did well directing me to his friend's house except for the last turn. :(

On Saturday we visited with my parents and Meg and I got to have a nice dinner out. It was great - much better than our previous experience.

Sunday went OK for us. A good time at church led into our normal Sunday routine, errands, grocery shopping, etc. We took the kids for a walk and despite Henry not feeling well it was a pretty restful day. Henry ask, "why I not feel well all day?" He's still a bit achy today, but perks up pretty quickly when he thinks his chances of eating more candy are greater.

8,000 halves turned up one 90% silver half (1964), six 40% silver halves (1966, 3 x 1967, 1968D, 1969D), eleven proofs (1971S, 2 x 1976S, 1978S, 1979S, 1980S, 1982S, 1985S, 1986S, 2001S), one UK penny (1966) and one Angel medal. I think one of the 1967's is a Special Mint Set variety, but I can't be sure.

15,300 pennies yielded eighty-eight Wheats, one hundred fifteen Canadians, two Euro 2¢, one Bahamas 1¢ and seven US dimes.

1918, 1930, 1934(2), 1935, 1936, 1940(2), 1941(3), 1941S, 1942(4), 1944(12), 1945(3), 1945D, 1946(3), 1946S, 1947, 1947D, 1948(3), 1949(2), 1950S, 1951(2), 1951D(2), 1952(4), 1952D, 1953(2), 1953D, 1954, 1955D(2), 1956(6), 1956D(8), 1957(3), 1957D(7), 1958(2), 1958D

In the coin counter reject I found a decent foreign coin, a 1961 UK six pence.
