    Someone stole my wallet, while we were on vacation, so I bought me a new one.

    I think we can guess that the Holy Island monks were happy most of the time on this stuff

    Yes sir, really put a damper on the trip.
    Managed to order replacements to most of my cards and such, even had my license waiting on me when we got home.

    I hope whoever got it had a good weekend on the cash...yeah right.

    I've never had mine lifted but I lost it twice through the years. It leaves a very bad feeling. Sorry again... very sorry.

    I had my lifted when I was 17. It was found at the end of the summer on the bank of the Susquehanna with only the $3 I had in cash missing.

    I’m in the process of moving and needed some carton tape. The most cost-effective option was a multipack with the basic little dispenser.

    I saw the caution label and put on my “over 50” glasses expecting a warning about sharp teeth, etc. I was surprised that it’s even dumber than that...

    Photos up soon with my newest purchase, thought I did bought prescription, with Gotham Seaon Three, also Jojo's Bizzare Adventure Volume two, With Gotham it really bugged me how they jumped around towards the weekends (I usually catch the heck up with Adult Swim until the weekend starts, then toonami on Suns and Mon's usually, unless something comes up unexpectilingly.)

    Notified by the eBay seller, of this vintage piece, that it's been lost in the mail.

    First time I ever had a wallet get lost, especially before I had it.

    Life happens.

    My newest bestest friend since the explosion of mosquitoes these last couple of weeks. I have several different brands but this one is awesome. Made by Black Flag. It will not only kill any insects on contact but if one gets stuck in the mesh it will continue to fry them until the dust falls out. Talk about redneck entertainment!! The crackle it makes every time you nail a bug is quite intense and satisfying. Only drawback is that if you use it on too many bugs at a time indoors the house starts smelling like burnt bugs 20180914_111723[1].jpg

    In 2 hours it will be an unplanned trip to the vet. Tickle seems to have some nasty infection thing going on in her ears, it's awful and came quickly so no clue. Anyway...CHA-CHING

    Ugh. I hate doggie ear infections. They're nasty. :( I hope they give Tickle the ear goo with the anesthetic in it so she can sleep without itching too much.

    $200 later she has ear drops, goo to go on the inside of her ears/skin, antibiotics and pain meds.

    Her ears are a terrible mess and it just got so bad so fast. The vet hadn't seen anything like it, she's not even sure if it started in the ear canal or on her big inside ear skin (like when you look at her the ear part you'd see). It's a bacterial and should at least calm down in a few days. Poor girl.

    I like going to Nanyuan Airport, because I can see the British Hawker Siddeley Tridents they've got there.

    Yep! Larger bugs can be hit or miss if they don't touch the inner mesh but it has even been able to get those little bitty fruit flies that I am never able to get.
    I will be looking for one of those salt guns next, @olbriar
