Today Meg heard two funny things from Henry. This morning she overheard him say to Hazel, "I can't teach everything, Hazel. You need to learn somethings by yourself." We're not sure what Hazel was requesting to be taught. After school, Henry said to Meg, "you know what the old people were called ... pilgrims;" he then described their ocean crossing voyage with some wavy hand motions, "like this."

Not to be outdone Hazel has been pretty chatty too. This weekend we saw her cover her face and say, "where are you, me?" Similarly she told her baby, "I love you, me."

8,000 halves had two 90% silver halves (1962, 1964) and four 40% halves (3 x 1967, 1968D).

2,680 quarters turned up two Canadians and two US nickels.

1,200 dimes rounded up two Canadians.

760 nickels had one Swiss 20 Rappen and one new modern one for me, 2012P.

9,100 pennies got me seventy-one Wheats, twenty-six Canadians, five US dimes and one Bahamas 1¢.
