On Tuesday morning Meg and I took the kids to our polling place. Henry brought a small toy broom with him in the van. I'm not sure why, but it did seem to produce Democratic sweep in Massachusetts. After that we went to Henry's school for a parent-teacher conference. Meg and I couldn't be more pleased with the report. According to his teacher he's ready for kindergarten now. We do, however, need to work on his fine motor skills. For that the teacher had several recommendations.

30 small dollars had nothing.

8,000 half dollars yielded nine 90% silver halves (1942, 1943, 1944, 1946, 5 x 1964), eleven 40% silver halves (4 x 1966, 3 x 1967, 4 x 1968D) and two proof halves (1972S, 1981S).

9,900 quarters turned up six Canadians, one East Caribbean States 25&#162, one Bermuda 25&#162, one South Korean 100 Won, one Philippines 1 Piso and three US nickels. There was also a new modern quarter in there for me, the 2012D Hawai'i.

1,800 dimes rounded up three silver Rosies (1962D, 1963, 1964D), one US penny, one UK 5 pence and one Israel 1 Shekel.

2,320 nickels got me one Bermuda 5¢.

7,300 pennies roped in twenty-five Wheats and thirty-eight Canadians.
