Happy St. Patrick's Day!

This weekend we celebrated St. Patrick's Day with a special corned beef, steamed vegetables and soda bread supper. Afterwards the kids got dressed up in some "Irish" clothes. Here are a few good pictures from the fun times we were having.

We also enjoyed the nice weather yesterday and spent lots of time outside. Before long Henry and Hazel will be begging us to let them play outside as soon as they get up and until they go to bed. It's great to add "going to the park" to our repertoire of activities. Being outside definitely burns off some bad energy.

My coins were very good to me this weekend.

8,000 halves had fourteen 90% silver halves (1943, 1944D, 1945, 1952, 9 x 1964, 1964D) and fifty-two 40% silver halves (1965, 6 x 1966, 23 x 1967, 14 x 1968D, 8 x 1969D).

1,240 nickels turned up one dateless Buffalo, two War Times (1943P, 1944P) and two Canadians.

9,300 pennies yielded fifty-four Wheats, ninety-one Canadians and four US dimes.
