Not wanting to be a know-it-all but savioury dishes can also contribute to diabetes, not just sweets..

Lawn mowed, chipmunks enraged by that fact.

I got started painting with scale battleship models. When i found out Battletech had minis I got a few and got some craft paint brushes that were better than the Testors brushes I had. One of these brushes (Pro Art round 0) I used quite a bit until I got some of the Reaper Kolinsky Sables. That round 0 was still used on nearly every model I painted as a paint mixer, base coater, and drybrusher. Over the years I got paint in the ferrul that seems to have kept the bristles angled so it kept a decent point, despite the large amount of drybrushing I used it for. Being a synthetic brush the tip had curled, but that made it easier to get in some spots.

 

Yesterday, while trying to get some static grass on a mini, some grass got where I didn't want it to be. So I grabbed my crappy brush to push it away. And promptly got super glue in the bristles. I though the glue had dried. A moment of silence please, for a cheap crappy brush that has done a large amount of work on the majority of the models I have painted for the last 20 years. I'm not sure how I'm going to replace it.

Today I'm breaking down a turkey half-carcass. I have its chest and spine and will turn that into breasts and wings and stock.

Condolences on the loss of a good  brush. Sounds like it served well. 

 

I get a lot of mileage out of the Hobby Lobby brand Master's Touch.  With frequent coupons they end up being about $5.

Sounds delicious.  I love a nice turkey sandwich with lots of mayo.

 

Pork roast here, with spinach and sweet potatoes.

i use Master's Touch too. i'm rough on brushes, and it's just not worth the price for really nice miniature painting brushes that i then ruin.

 

i dont even know what i do. maybe i paint with too much pressure, but after a little bit of use my tiny brushes usually develop a curve / hook end

Sounds like you are using synthetics.

Sounds like it's time to build a shrine to the brush.

It was a nice day...I unpacked the melting pots and worked on my Romano-British/Dux Bellorum/Rosemary Sutcliff project for a while, and coached my brother a bit.  Unfortunately, I ran out of impetus before trying out the vintage Buck Rogers molds...

Breaking in the new smoker.  Burn in was successful and the ribs have about an hour to go.  Food, then DnD with a new stout to try.  Great end to a surprisingly chill weekend.
