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.

 

okay is Brigid a dog or child ? 

either way the images in my head  are hysterical.

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?

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

Ive played that game, numerous times. It gets even more "fun" when you're driving a wind sail of a vehicle (tall cargo van) on highways where there's a good amount of wind. On all season tires, because work won't buy us winter ones. And they haven't sanded yet. 

 

I've lost such games working in an area in town I wasn't used to. Fell four feet into the ditch, thankfully a local shop worker was about to leave, saw me barely keeping it upright as I tried to get back on the road, and towed me out.  Apparently it's a common sight there, since the side of the road changes regularly, and the ditches fill up with said snow pretty quickly.

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.

I think that's one of the main reasons I'm contemplating the Iwata HP-CS...  Many have commented on its durability, and being relatively novice friendly too. Trigger definitely seemed to be nice when I tried one. 

 

I have this foreboding feeling I'm going to wind up buying two airbrushes to start - the Grex TG5 for grunt work (like say spraying down terrain), and the HP-CS for more detail oriented work... But also because I honestly can't decide which of the two I feel I would prefer. 

 

Spare needle definitely sounds like a lovely idea. I think this is also why much as I'd love to give Badger a try for my first brush, not many stock them in Canada, especially spare parts.  Iwata I know of at least two places that have parts, and one that carries Grex.

With "Danger" literally as their middle name... Could be either. But it's definitely a child.

How have I not seen this before?!  Pinky and the Brain and PMJ?

 

And then to get Rob and Maurice on top of it all?

 

Rob was actually at a local con a few years back.  I still regret not going there and getting him to autograph my P&tB DVDs (well, a box or something).

Yeah, I put good winter tires on the vehicles the wife drives. Without them I even scared myself a few times. My truck has all seasons because it's 4x4. It'll move forward unless I'm bellied out in a bad drift which has happened but sometimes stopping is not quite what I'd hope for. Just a couple days ago I made a really wild turn at a stop sign when I stepped on the brakes and she said, "Naw, not right now." Luckily traffic here is almost nonexistant a lot the time.

four wheel drive does not equal four wheel stop. A lesson a number of folks around here seem to need to relearn every winter. 'Am I on the road" is a game I do not like, and is part of why I don't drive much in the winter. I've had the slip and slide feeling a few times, and it scares me too much.

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.

 

Oh I've got one of those, even has a mulcher attachment to it. Just somedays, you just wanna be outside in the backyard with very little noise going on. It was actually nice today, outside with a short sleeve shirt. Mornings the last couple have been cold, like lower 30s. It's cold right now.

 

Thumper is inside as well. While she's stayed outside in weather like this, with us having her fully in our care now, we decided she wasn't going to be outside when it got real cold. I think she is enjoying herself this time around. She even enjoys it more if you put a warm from the dryer towel in her pop up cage (made for a medium size dog) we put her in at night. We let her roam the house in the day.

Hitting black ice at fifty miles an hour is an amazing experience even on a flat, empty road, I can report.

Unforgettable, and "something for the never again bucket list" is how I'd describe that.

I laughed all the way through it, as I have that John McClane reflex, but it was really, really, really, not funny. I was v. lucky.

I seem to have a minor sinus infection and just cannot sleep this week. Even with Benadryl. My day off, I get maybe three hours. This is going to be a fun night... Maybe I'll see if I can take a nap?

Since it's autumn and rainy and grey we will not use the garden table for dinner.

 

So...it's now a feeding table for birds, squirrels and other critters that want some.

I was coming home from a business trip to Colorado yesterday, and had to drive I-25 between Pueblo and Denver (in case anyone’s out that way).  I have been in almost full whiteout conditions along that road in the past, but yesterday it was “just” unexpected icing.  I lost track completely, but from Castle Rock to the airport, we passed two or three crashes, four or five vehicles spun off the road, and one overturned semi.  (It was tough to be sure about which category between those first two a specific vehicle might be in).  I would have thought that inhabitants of a state with frequent ice and snow would be better about driving in/on it.
