Thanks guys ... yah, I'm half-way through the chemo treatment (3 outta 6 sessions are now behind me ... I'm high-steppin' through the treatments!!)

I mostly just feel tired all of the time ... but I've got nothing to do, so I just crash while watching TV (sounds like the good life, eh?) ... it'd be better if the cancer part wasn't looming in the background

=> but thanks for the coin compliments and thanks again for the kind words ... Merry Christmas!!

Ummm, it looks like it has nice female nipples going on, yes? ... I'm pretty sure that it's a female, not a male (Griffine)

Ahaha, I can't believe that we're discussing Griffin nipples (these coins are amazing, eh?)

I thought you were referring to Neegan.
Commodus was far far worse.
Great coin!
