Kobuk I agree with Jade. In the end who care what others think. Post what you need and ignore the rest.

My bad news is I've chickened out on eating at local restaurants. I'm allergic to pork. So it's a game of Russian Roulette every time I eat out. Way to much cross contamination.

My other bad news is I'll have to redesign the shelves I'm building in the basement. The wall the previous owners put up has no studs in it. Just as sheet or rockwall. I'll have to make free standing selves.

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.

Spent hours cleaning up in both the garage and basement. Getting rid of a lot of stuff I haven't done anything with in years. Had a good pile of trash bags and one very badly designed smoker grill I never used. Would have donated the smoker but it was missing parts. Pulled all this stuff out the the curb last night. Felt really good to get up in the morning and see it's all been taken away. Till I smelt it. I've had a trash bag in my kitchen can that went rancid shortly after I started putting things in it last week. Of all the stuff I brought out to the street I forget this unholy bag of horrors. Now I'll have to live with it for another week.

So sorry Beag. L.   :'( :'(

I know how much pets can mean to me, and many others.
You have my sympathies.

Migraine caused me to run over a gas station pump curb, ripped off my lower trim and dented a door.
I pulled the dent out using wooden "levers" and bump hammers, trim is mostly a loss.
taking it easy, since everything is overly hard right now.
could be worse.

My "phase-gate-assembly" died, and now my test instrument is a piece of junk. 
Flea-Bay is only place for these 30-40 year old precision, space age, wonders of science.  They are being sold for... $49 to  $249 each... hmm....when does my check come in?
*sigh* I need a life.

Someone here shot at a young bald eagle with a pellet rifle. The wounded bird, shot while roosting, will recover.  It's a federal offense to shoot n eagle and a reward may be offered for information leading to the shooter's arrest.

Well, I can kiss a new fursuit goodbye.......again.  :'(
https://forums.furtopia.org/index.php?topic=51794.0

I had to make an emergency dental appointment today. And there will be more dental appointments with an oral surgeon in the future as I need to have two teeth removed.  :'(
So any leftover money from those gov't stimulus checks will now have to go toward dental work instead of a new fursuit and future cons.

Sorry Kobuk.
 :(

But I am glad you are taking care of health.

If I was a rich dog, I would give every Furtopian some furry-cash. 8)

My bad news is, that my mother is as sad as I have ever seen her.  My brother is at fault.
He apparently regularly comes to her town, to ride dirt bikes with his kids, and he has never once went to see her.
He lives 150 miles away, so to move all that stuff and 4 kids to her town to ride bikes once a month, is a big undertaking.  You would think it is easy to stop by her house for 30 min each time.  Really sad.

And I can not make her happier.

Got into a scrape with a semi on Tuesday. Damage is cosmetic and the car is drivable. No tickets were issued.

I have to go in.  I do not want to make someone ill.

My teeth pain seems linked to sinus pressure.  Which has been bad lately.
Getting better, took today off.

My bad news is that work is piling up when I take time off.

My Blu-ray player broke today. Luckily, I had a spare that I hooked up.

Dealing with multiple dental issues the past few days........and pain.  :'( On antibiotics right now, but dealing with a side effect which I'd rather not mention.

Anchor chain on one of my model ships is loose. Have to fix that tomorrow.

No living history encampment in the park this Fall as they couldn't get insurance.

Emailed a guy about a week ago in hopes of getting some parts 3D printed for a model. It's now 1 week later and I never heard back from the guy.  >:(

Went to see the dentist today for some emergency fillings. They had to hit me with about 5 novacaine shots, plus I was on the nitrous oxide gas. :( My lower left mouth is so numb right now.

Insurance is being a pain in the butt about covering my prescriptions. I'd rather not have to go bankrupt for mental stability, thanks!
