Phantom fingers have feelings too.

Your hand may feel like the finger is still there, but I don't think the finger itself feels much.

Maybe, maybe not :D I'm no fortune teller.

I dispise painting, hire a professional. I'm patient in most things, but not that.

Wait, I thought bald eagles eat fish? You can't tell me there's fish swimming about there.

Bald eagles are about one chromosome from a buzzard. They’ll eat anything made of meat,

Yep. They are part scavenger, like most animals.

I wish I could justify it. But their work would never measure up to my expectations.

There are a few areas in life where my expectations are pretty low and I'm OK with it. Painting is one of them.

I would love to have a bag from Ruthworks or Waxwing Bag Co.

I'm planning to tell the story that I couldn't decide on a tattoo so I just went with this. But my old farmers hands are so scarred up that this one miight not even show.

How 'bout you?

This snow was not forecast at all.

I feel personally attacked, and honestly quite offended.

True. I can feel it flexing just like normal, inside its pod. Of course it can't flex with that steel pin running through it. And, from what I'm told, it may never flex again, under its own power.

I have mask options to wear at work.

Floral or plain?

There go my MTB plans for this weekend.

Back at the tail end of the 80s, my not yet wife and I were going to go to a party in town. We got so much snow the day before that we couldn't get off the hill in the Subaru. Getting back up would have been unthinkable. April 30, iirc. Southeast Ohio

The floral one is sexy

seedsbelize 04-17-20 06:46 AM

I woke up feeling relatively normal this morning. Learning to live with one hand. I even took off my own t shirt.
And what is this 'riding' you speak of?

Finally warming back above 70F today, but it'll be back in the 60s for the next few days. :notamused:
