 I've never seen a werepup.  You should post a pic if you want.

My good news is I never got sick from my furry convention. 
I guess vaccines, masks, social distancing DO work.

Go science!

Good Lord!
He must be a riot on Halloween.  Wear a backpack with him poking out the back.  Also go online and get a voice chip thing and record a sound, and place it in or on the Werepup.  Then he can "talk" to you.  I bet that would freak people out.

Looks like what I suspect my child, born from mating a she-werewolf, would be like.  Part GSD, part Werewolf.

Thanks for sharing!

Lol your welcome.
A voice chip would be interesting. I do have a carrier for him.
I don't take him out much but I should.

Put your Firelight fursuit on , and were a carrier for your werepup!  Take a photo, it would be cool! 
If you do, just post it here first!   :)


My "good news" is, I do not care about my bad job much.  This means I am gearing up to do something else like a different job, or ... i just do not care anymore!

My insurance provider finally approved repairs to my vehicle.

This isn't personal good news. But it made me grin from ear to ear. Still smiling.

It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Heh, a misinformation dude gets his own ?  I feel a bit better.

My good news is I put in a 55foot chain link fence to keep neighbor from driving through my property.
Boy you should see him frown when he came home with his 32foot long trailer and double extended cab truck and couldn't drive through my stuff anymore...
took him 5 tries to get it done.  Tied up traffic.
Today he parks on the street...
Ya know, tough!

My last bit of good news is that I actually tested my whole radio direction finder setup.
It actually worked!  I am very surprised, because this was all made in pieces, and those pieces slapped together in 1 hour.  This was not a kit that was guaranteed to work, it was my own design.  So it was guaranteed to fail.

Previously, I had no idea if it would really work at all!  Turns out it really kicks tail!    (:
It can sense the direction to within 1/2 a degree pretty easy when signal is strong.  It can even tell the general direction of arrival for very weak signals as well!  I was able to find a host of things in one half of one afternoon. I could see the display show direction to tower on a mountain (as expected), and then the direction to a guy driving and talking on his ham radio.  The thing also found direction to a few interfering signals like a DVD player in my house, and something across the street.  Thankfully... one thing the direction finder did NOT find was the signals the direction finder emits its self (these are signals it SHOULDN'T be making).

Not sure exactly how to "calibrate" this beast.  Not sure if this thing really is going on my jeep like I had thought.
IDK.  It was fun, and now it is over.  The build up was the best part.
I am calling it the "Ghetto RDF".

ahh back to work...(I hate work)
we lost 2 more employees due to quitting.

The good news for me today is that I had the pleasure of playing Far Cry 6, a game that I had been waiting for about a year.
Mating is temporary, the stench of cheese is forever

After moths of researching I've finally learned everything i need to know about the painting technique I want to learn. Glazing and Scumbling. This technique can take up to a year and a half or more to finish a single painting. Was created six hundred years ago. Taught and used for 500+ years. You would think it would be easy to find instructions for. As long as you have an extra $500 laying around. People who know or teach this technique act like it's only for those who are worthy, or wealthy. Worst yet is all the completely wrong information on this technique there actually is. I had to piece together information found in technical bulletins from the research division of the National Gallery in London. University of Delaware's art conservation department (MITRA) and was finally able to talk to someone who actually paints this way. And the grand total of how much this cost me? Nothing.

So if you want to learn how to correctly Glaze and Scumble just send the bargain price of only $450 to.... :D

Mom reminded me of a drive-up roasted chicken dinner takeout this afternoon. While heading out, I spotted a fox and was able to slow down so the rascal could safely cross the road in front of me.

Went to a model contest this past weekend in Chicago. Took a silver medal for a battleship model I built, and a Certificate of Merit for a helicopter diorama I built. A CoM is kind of like one step below a bronze medal. It's like somebody saying "Nice model, but try harder next time. Much harder.".  :(

The body shop finally had a loaner car for me so I could drop mine off for service. It's a 2022 GMC Canyon with just 4 miles on it.

I adopted a cat in August--her name is Mochi! She's a year old Russian blue and she is my emotional service animal. She is currently asleep next to me on the couch. I love her dearly and I am so grateful to have her in my life. <3

Nice photos Iara!  Mochi reminds me of my sisters Russian blue called Imp.
They can be really nice cats, so far as I have observed.

Thank you Jade and Firelight! :3 Mochi can be a bit frustrating at times, because she loves to claw and scratch things she's not supposed to, eat stickers and nibble on plastic, and likes to hover over my food...but other than that, she is generally a good cat. She doesn't bite/claw on purpose, and understands no, her name, and play. She even directs my attention with a gentle tap on my shoulder or on her favorite toy. XD I figure the bad behaviors are leftovers from kittenhood--she didn't have the best upbringing in a cramped space with 10 other cats! But she is relaxing more around me and greets me the moment I get home with loud meows and a gentle walk past my legs. <3
