I hope your daughter and everyone concerned is okay!

Thanks. She's good. Had a couple stitches put in and we called it a day. Fun times.
Glad she's better!
She got a lego duck set as we left the ER so she was happy Tough kid.
On the CV front. I go to my local grocery store around lunch time. It’s not too crowded and I buy a few essential food items and a half gallon of Blue Bell Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream (my wife’s favorite). ‘Cuz sometimes you just gotta have something good during these times.
Of course I check for hand sanitizer, Chlorox, etc - none.
I get to the checkout line and there’s a sign saying that tomorrow, the store will be open to seniors only from 6-9 am. I‘m thinking that’s really nice of the store to do that. I ask the checker what it’s like when the store opens to everyone else at 9. He says, “A zoo!” I ask him, “By the way, how old do you have to be to be a “senior”. He says “60.” Hey, I finally qualify for something good, I’m 62! I will go there when they open and get the things we couldn’t find in several trips to the store.
Thanks! I certainly have been fortunate lately. My last 4 boxes held: 6, 14, 29, & 33 silvers. Testing for CV is ramping up across the US. No positives tests reported yet for my county. Until that happens, I guess I will keep searching. Hoping this epidemic/pandemic passes quickly! Best wishes and stay safe.
@TexAg - not to jinx it but you're killing it this week, 4+ rolls of silver! GL with tomorrow's box!
Thanks Drew, I’ll post what I find.
Ha ha, I will do my best! Thanks for the encouragement WGSL.
I have a few coins I found that were solid!
A 1990 "Berty" Penny
A 2007 nickel with absolute round edges that blankets 1/3 of perimeter text, obverse and reverse finely dented likely from a run in a commercial dryer.
And my peculiar find is a 2019D Dime with the most shiny complete "gun metal" color. No typical patina, no color imperfections, complete 2019 new shine, no dirt, grease or any foreign rough feel whatsoever on any part of the coin. Can anyone shed any light on yes, putting up the pictures and of course the coins in what exactly do I have if anything?

Okay, I was brought back to earth in a big way!
Bought the companion box to the 33 silver box - Zip. Bought 2 other boxes from elsewhere - zip. Bought another box - 1 x 40%er. Oh, the humanity!
I did have one nice teller call me to say she received $126 in large dollars. Rushed down there with visions of Morgans and Peace dollars. Instead they were all clad Ikes. I bought them anyway, and will search for varieties, I really need a 1972 Type 2.
Doh! It was good while it lasted! I had a mini run of no skunks and had one last night.
Ha ha, thanks WGSL. As we say in Texas, "No brag, just fact!" And when we strike out, we admit it with a wry smile.
Today, I picked up 2 more half dollar boxes. At this particular bank, the Head Teller really likes me and my wife (she bakes them a lot of cookies, lol). She informed me that the lobby service will shut down next Tuesday, but she will be perfectly happy to break up my usual weekly order of 1 box into several plastic bags and send them to me via the Motor Bank "Commercial Lane" vacuum tube. My other pickup banks don't have that option, so if they close their lobbies, my volume will drop from 4-5 boxes to 1 (or two if I'm lucky).
The two boxes gave up 1 x 40%er and a Trump counterstruck Kennedy. I guess I am on a new streak of 1 silver.
