Here's two good exchanges from Henry (somewhat paraphrased):

Henry: "Today we told knock-knock jokes." Meg: "Oh, yeah, like what?" Henry: "Someone said, 'Knock, Knock. I peed.'" Meg: "Did you tell any?" Henry: "They weren't funny."

Henry: "Wyatt told me he threw up on his train for Christmas. His mother threw it out. In the trash can!"

And an oldie (last week) from Hazel via and e-mail from Meg:

On the way home from dropping Henry at school, Hazel asked me when you were coming home. I told her not until supper time, and she asked why. So I reminded her that you'd gone back to work. She then asked me why you go to work. I told her that you go to work to make money. Her response, "For ME?" I laughed and said yes, and she yelled out "Yayy! Money for me! Where my money? My money at home?"

106 small dollars had one Canadian.

3,200 quarters turned up four Canadians (one was a 1960, 80% silver), five US nickels, one US dime, two US pennies and one Bermuda 25¢. The 1960 silver Canadian is the the first one I've found of that date.

2,250 dimes rounded up one silver Rosie (1959), one Canadian and one Israel 1 Shekel.

1,280 nickels produced one Buffalo (1913S Type 1), two War Times (1942P, 1943P), one Canadian (1 Ni), two US dimes and one US penny. The Buffalo is a great one. I actually found another of these in September, but this one is far better. The previous one had a date I couldn't read, this one has a full date! I think it's worth like $40-$50.
