Once a boxer, now a brand.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to griddle some cakes.

About this time, George came into the Pet Shop where I worked in NW Houston. I was 17. He bought studded collars for his dobermans. When I went to count his change out into his hand I was shocked at how HUGE it was. His fist must have been the size of a normal Ham. The money looked like monopoly money by comparison.
