Out of the Blue

I needed to bathe the doggies yesterday and determined that the Gunnar-man needed a haircut, so I busted out the scissors. I had let his coat get to a wonderfully shaggy state (to the extent that you probably wouldn't guess he is a poodle), but it was getting too long to be manageable. The thing is, I'm not very subtle about these things, so he's gone from pretty long hair to pretty short hair, all perfectly timed to go outside in the bitter cold. Luckily, he runs so hot he doesn't seem to care, and he seems to like it better this way, so I may need to just keep him more trimmed all the time, poodle look and all.

Interesting story. I'm a minor (very minor) coin collector and hadn't ever heard about these coins, and obviously not the story behind this particular one.  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
