Although shorter than last weekend, the past two days were pretty good to us. On Saturday I did some volunteering, Meg got to do some shopping and Henry and Hazel spent some quality time with Nana and Grandpa. Nana and Grandpa took them to one of the last great family department stores in our area, Klem's. They enjoyed free popcorn, pet store sitings and checking out lawn mowers and tractors. In the afternoon Henry and I went to Home Depot for materials and to check out more tractors. Later we went on a family walk. On Sunday we went to church, did some yard work and went to the park.

8,000 halves produced three 90% silver halves (3 x 1964), eighteen 40% silver halves (10 x 1967, 7 x 1968D, 1969D), two proof halves (1989S, 2004S) and one Indian Rupee (1917). The Indian Rupee is one of the cooler coins I've come across. It's 91.7% silver and is in decent shape. It's not really worth much more than it's silver content, but I think it is great. It is the 9/10th oldest foreign coin I've found.

17,800 pennies turned up ninety-two Wheats, one hundred eighteen Canadians, four US dimes, two Euro 2¢, one Irish penny and one UK penny.
