  1. Lawn mower started with minimal trouble. Even though it hasn't been touched since last fall. Grass all mowed, but my back and arms are sore.
  2. Got some errands done. Still have more stuff to do, but its not critical to do it now and I ran out of energy. Should have eaten lunch before I left the house. Still have yard stuff to attempt today, but that will depend on the health of the lawnmower. It hasn't been moved since last mowing season. But lunch is first.
  3. Today not going as planned. Still going to try to get some things done today. Maybe not the things other people might want me to be doing today, but stuff done is still stuff that's done.
  4. According to what I read turkey vultures don't attack living animals, but the black ones do and they hang out with turkey vultures because turkey vultures have a better sense of smell.
  5. Micron Pens for eyes

    I tried the micron pens for awhile. I also had some issues with them smudging, but I also got some decent results. When I got some W&N brushes with good points I pretty much gave up on the pens as the really pointy brushes can get more control over the range of effects you can get with eyes.
  6. I have just had to reevaluate the identity of the big black bird I saw earlier this week. I thought it was a raven, but after a couple of sightings of large black birds, I'm thinking I was mistaken. This morning Mr Flit went out to get something from the car and came back and said " there is a huge black bird on the roof of the house next door. I went out and there was a huge black bird on the roof next door with its wings spread out sunning itself. Just a little bit ago I got home from running errands all afternoon and when I got out of the car there was a huge black bird with a red head flying over my head low enough that I felt like I wanted to duck even though it wasn't really that close to me. This morning when I was looking at the huge bird I wasn't sure if its head was black or red because I was looking into the sun. When I got inside I did some more google-ing and found out that there are turkey vultures and black vultures in the area. Black vultures will attack living animals and I found an article about ranchers having trouble with black vulture attacks on newborn calves. Now I am afraid to take my dog outside and extra worried about my cats escaping from the house. I really don't need this extra stress.
  7. This applies to dachshunds too.
  8. This seems to be happening to me a lot lately. Usually by accident.
  9. It probably has something to do with that Murphy guy.
  10. A dimensionally transcendental storage closet.
  11. Vallejo is not stocked at all in my area. I got my Metal Medium from Amazon. I've played with it just a little and it is a lot of fun so far.
  12. Other ways poop gets on crops include deer and other wildlife that snack on the crops in the fields and also use the fields as a bathroom. And the worst one (that could totally be prevented) many large farms that employ people to hand pick crops do not have, or have enough, restroom facilities for the workers and/ or do not provide necessary time for breaks.
  13. Have you tried asking @TaleSpinner ? He can probably answer your question.
  14. I just consulted google and siri and came to the same conclusion. I didn't realize there were ravens in the area. But it does explain the black hawks I have been seeing recently.
  15. Any bird experts around? This morning I had a disconcerting experience. It started pretty normally with little watch doggie looking out the window next to the front door and barking. I peeked out to reasure doggie that the grass in the front yard was not about to launch a murderous attack on us when I noticed that across the street there seemed to be a turkey. On second glance it wasn't big enough to be a turkey and was solid black. Mostly it looked like a ginormous crow. On third glance I realized it was quite interested in something against the curb across the street. On fourth glance that thing seemed to be a deceased cat and the bird was pulling it around. On fifth glance the deceased turned out to be a raccoon. At this point I was done with my observation and closed the curtain while wondering if the bird was a vulture, but it had feathers on its head and I'm not sure if vultures live in the area. Later I left the house to run errands and saw what looked like the same bird flying over the house at this point it looked like a black hawk. We have hawks in the area but they are brown, reddish, and white. Anyone have any idea what this thing could be? My bird identification skills don't go much further than robin, cardinal, and blue jay. May be that giant crows have decided to take over the world.
  16. Do you consider Friday the 13th to be an unlucky day? Do you now or have you ever owned a black cat? Friday the 13 is about as unlucky as any other day. I used to have 3 black cats. One of them had a couple of small white spots, but generally considered her to be black.

    Happy Birthday!

    Nice job! I painted one of these back in the day when you could buy them in a hobby store.
  19. Photo box

    I bought one of these on Amazon but the lights didn't work.
  20. Just this one.
  21. It is snowing and the "feels like" temperature is 13F. This is no way for April to behave.
  22. I just got a chance to play with my new Vallejo metallic medium and Tri-Art Liquid Mirror. They are awesome! The Liquid Mirror even makes the rince water sparkle. They both mixed well with other colors.
  23. I didnt know this was a thing.
  24. Thanks for the tip @haldir I got to where I needed to go. More a work around than an actual fix, but I got what I needed to do done.
  25. Anybody know how to remove a Norton toolbar from the Chrome browser (which I hate and only use for one really important thing because I have to). The tool bar won't let me in because my email is not associated with it because Mr Flit set up the account and it won't let me use my email (registered to the really important account) because I used my email to log in- like I am supposed to.
