Can we tone it down with the fowl language around here? 

 

Phone interview went well. We'll see if I get called back for an in person interview...

 

Coffee...

 

You realize that this is just egging us on?

Yeah, no problems with the store for me. Except that whole lack of $$ thing... 

 

Feeling that myself these days. Grain company hasn't paid me for everything in 2016 and none of 2017 and I had a lower than expected cheque for the calves. On the plus side I just got paid for a leasing deal so I'm only chest deep in short term debt instead of eyebrow deep like I was a week ago. Need to throw a little money into the Bones 4 bag while I wait for the rest of the people that owe me money to pay up. Hopefully by May I'll have a plus amount in my account.

Any labor should be rewarded, life ain't free.

 

If only I had that motto when I was in my early 20s. So much work given at first freely and later grudgingly to people that didn't deserve it. After I was finally fed up and quit doing it I still had those same people trying to tell me I "owed them". Basic economics, you never owe anyone that you are doing work for.

I give you a warning - be prepared for full frontal nudity from both genders. There's more naked ladies than naked men, but you still see the old twig and berries a couple times.

 

Nudity doesn't bother me much although I have been exposed to things I'd rather not have seen at times. Thinking of Dennis Franz in NYPD Blue. :wacko: shudders. It does get old after awhile when you always have to have it as a catch.

I gleefully ordered 2 brushes.. have never airbrushed in my life and have no idea what to get to complete a setup or even where I can setup an airbrush area...

But I'm anxiously awaiting my brushes too!! 

There's a lot of good info available in the painting tips and tricks threads...

Feel free to join the hangouts for more information. ...

I don't really see it as a con either, because I'm not disturbed by nudity. Heck, some ladies(and other men) may see it as a plus because one of the men who gives a full frontal is James Purefoy, who I understand has quite a few ladies(and other men) that find him very attractive. Personally, I think he's got the kind of face that exudes smugness to such a degree that it just begs for a fist to disrupt it. But maybe that's also because my two biggest exposures to him have been as Marc Antony in Rome and as Laurens Bancroft in Altered Carbon. Both of whom tend to be deserving of a good punching or twelve.

He's also Solomon Kane, and was in John carter of mars...

(Both of which I enjoyed immensely)

What? No... I'd never expect a bunch of quacks like you to take it as a challenge.

Things I miss: writing on a chalkboard. Bench seats in a pickup truck. Cafeteria lines. Sunset over a decommissioned water tower. Static on the TV.

I have read a couple of them - the biggest problem I have right now is an area - both the garage and the basement are much too cold in the winter to support airbrushing .. the rest is just time and money :)

Really though, very rarely does a duck NOT display full nudity.  They tend to bite you if you try to clothe them.

Which made me think of a certain Disney Character - Which immediately reminded me of:

Detroit is getting a little snow. 8 inches or so thus far, another 3ish on the way.

 

I might have to use the 4-wheel drive on my truck to get down my street.

The legacy of being trained by the animation staff assembled by Walt Disney himself.

Those were the people who would make drawings all day and attend art classes every evening at and paid for by the studio in order to advance the craft and art of animation.

The creme de la creme being Disney's "9 Old Men"
