A Long Way From Home

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 7, 2015, 7:00 PM
Determined to beat the unusual Pacific Northwest heat, I decided to take advantage of the air conditioning at the local stores. And as walking around is thirsty business, I headed the siren call of the nearest vending machine. It was only 50¢, so we were not exactly talking high finance here. Until the machine malfunctioned.

Coins went in, and to my amazement one extra came out. It looked a bit odd. But with all  the changes to quarters over the past few years and Canada and their own changing quarters, it wasn't that unusual. Calling it my lucky day, I gave it another try. Two coins enter, three coins leave. I rather like this game, having just doubled my money. But I wanted soda. I started this came because I was thirsty after all. The Pepsi machine refused my money at that point. the Coke machine wasn't as finicky.

Back in the shelter of my car air conditioning, thirst quenched, it was time to figure out why the vending machine didn't like my newly found treasure. Likely just Canadian coins, and I do get up to the Great White North enough to make keeping them worth while. But much to my surprise the coin had a golden sheen, and Cyrillic lettering. I had initially thought it was a Russian Ruble. Instead to my surprise, it was a pair of Ukrainian coins. I don't think 2 Ukrainian hryvnia will substitute for US Quarters, although they are about the same size. But they are a long way from home and a fun find.

As for what they look like (complements of Imigr)

Even before the Fudge Massacre, Angelica had always enjoyed a nice soothing hair brushing. It make her feel so much better, clamer. So afther rhe chaos of becoming a centaur, she naturally took to a good through curry combing to ease her jangled nerves. And best of all, there was so much more to brush...
