Pinky, are you contemplating what I'm contemplating?

 

The Auld Grump

I think so, Brain, but me and Pippi Longstockings? What would the children look like?

Heard back from the doctor about Dixie (sooner than I had anticipated, I didn't even get to stress-eat). Mass removal went well, now it's just a matter of waiting for the pathology results to see what comes next (fingers crossed for best results). I can pick her up tomorrow morning, then begins the next two weeks worth of keeping medications straight, having sleep schedules interrupted for random potty times, etc. She'll have to go back in to have her external stitches removed.

 

Glad to hear it, and I'll keep my fingers crossed, too.

 

So, apparently fall happened today. When I left for work there were some leaves in the yard, bur not very many. I came home to this:

After my trip up to my bank's drive thru to sign some papers dealing with Mr Spending Spree on Amazon, I came home & for some reason decided to rake mine all up............for now. I know the little bastards will be back!!!

Thou for my efforts I did come back into the house afterwards with a wad of dog* or whatever animal crap on my shoe....sigh. At least they are semi-flat bottom athletic shoes & cleaned out easily.

 

Thou the only big critters that can get back there would be cats????

There is the Reaper Vex yes, but it would take a month (or more) to get here after ordering, and it's priced pretty much right around what a TG5 would cost locally after conversion ($199.99 USD is about $263 CAD, TG series are $271 CAD at a store that's walking distance).  Price isn't necessarily the worry, it's that 4+ weeks it would take to get here, alongside availability of spare parts.  Reaper has commented about spare parts, but it's also the fact that if something breaks, I'm waiting several weeks to be able to use the brush again.  Vex does look like a nice brush though.

 

Paasche Talon has also tempted me, probably because it's one of the cheapest ones available, and also comes in a kit with a hose.  The Grex TG5 is tempting because, well, I have rsi in both wrists and I've a feeling the trigger style on that one would cause less aggravation, but at the same time that Iwata's trigger is fairly light, at least when it isn't hooked up.  The Iwata HP-CS is the only one I've actually held in my paw though.

 

Or, in other words, man I wish this was an easier thing to figure out, but it seems like it's pretty much along the lines like most artistic tools - personal preferences and comforts can play heavily into things.

 

Just replace brand names with resin printer names you've got what I'm debating right now. Thou, mine is between 3 of the same brand (Mars, Mars Pro, Mars Pro 2 & a Phrozen mini 4k or whatever that is called.

Hasn't been this bad here yet but it's a game I've played often enough.

I've had winter days like those.

 

Not bad in the city with tons of reference points, but long stretches of highways or lone country roads with hidden ditches are downright terrifying.

Next week I am going to use Brigid to make monster noises for the after school game. :lol:

 

The Auld Grump - she has already started to, in the background - there are certain monsters she knows by name.

This is why we have a leaf blower, which I used today. My dad scoffed at me when I told him to get the electric instead of the gas-powered, ranted about how he needed the gas-powered (my main concern was that the electric would be quieter, as he has hearing loss but refuses to do anything about it)... we got the electric and he loves it. Even works on light snow.

Sat down and came up with a list and grocery list for like almost a month's worth of meals. I've picked lots of crockpot stuff as well as some instant pot things so that Husband can do most of the cooking. Need to deep clean the fridge and actually acquire said groceries. I'm doing whatever I can to get as much writing time in as possible and seeing as I should probably only use my computer upstairs vs. the laptop I won't have much time in the kitchen anyway.

A game with serious stakes...

 

The Auld Grump - I once found that song on an album tited Voices of Texas... apparently someone didn't know the difference between Fort Kent and Fort Worth.... Curliss was from Maine, not Texas.

I hired a tree service to get some dead limbs out of a tree out back today. Before they showed up with their truck a utility crew arrived and started tearing up the alley to do work on a water line in roughly the same spot they need to park. About ten minutes after those two crews got their trucks sorted out a plumbing crew showed up to work on the condos across the alley that have been sitting around with no work done for months now. Right now they're all back there trying to figure out how everyone is going to fit their vehicles into a space that really should only have one truck in it to begin with. 

 

I believe this is what's known as a clustertruck.

Sounds like a synopsis for a Benny Hill sketch.

Looks like I'm finally getting that airbrush soon... Now to just figure out whether to go with the Iwata HP-CS (as a kit that's $10 more, but comes with hose, lube, and cleaner) or the Grex TG5. 

 

I've got an Iwata HP-CS and it's hands down the best airbrush I've ever owned. Any problems I have with it is purely down to my inherent clumsiness.

 

One thing that I'd definitely recommend for any airbrush is getting at least one extra needle for it. They are super delicate and it's really easy to dent or bend one ever so slightly when you're not used to cleaning them.

Now if I can just keep dad from worsening himself...

 

Glad Dixie is doing well, hopefully her diagnosis is a positive one. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for her.

Thank you! I just called to check on her since she's away from home for the night, and it is thundering. She hates the thunder, but the building has it muffled. Ate her meal without hesitating and took her meds. I get to pick her up at 10am tomorrow.

 

Molly's scab on her incision has been flaking off for a few days, but today I saw some fresh blood for the first time. It stopped quickly, but I had already gone into full panic mode: emailed pics to the vet, called on the phone. Nothing to worry about according to them.
