This weekend we went out for alumni event at Meg's college. There was a cross country run for the alum and even a kids' run. Hazel didn't participate in the kids' run and Henry did only so far as to run to me on the sidelines ... oh well. Meg did great. We were really proud of her for going out on the trails again. The event was a little long, but it was very inspiring. Best of all both Henry and Hazel were put to bed by their grandparents! Could a Mom and Dad vacation be near?!

After we got back from Nonnie and Pops we went to our town's Fall parade. We've tried this before and usually Henry doesn't last long. Last year he watched most of it from our window while Hazel and I enjoyed the event. This year, however, things were different. Henry still wore his ear protectors, but otherwise was fine. They were both really excited about all of the candy they got and were really cute scurrying out to pick it up and fill up their bags. Henry particularly enjoyed the old-time cars and Hazel was most puzzled by the dancers. He can't wait for next years parade!

8,000 halves turned up ten 40% silver halves (2 x 1966, 6 x 1967, 1968D, 1969D) and two proof halves (1985S, 2000S).

29,750 pennies produced ninety-four Wheats, two hundred nine Canadians, four US dimes, one UK penny and three Bermuda 1&$162;. One of the Wheats was a new one for me, the 1913S! Only about 6 million were made.

1909 V.D.B., 1913S, 1919, 1924, 1933, 1937, 1938, 1939, 1939S
