Fucked starlings!

They got WAY above their raisin' and the little fucking finches or sparrows or whatever the fuck they are, were getting a little too cozy in my walls so I borrowed the neighbor's ladder and with the help of the inch vacuumed as much nest material out as we could, a few little eggs, and then i FOAMED THE SHIT OUT OF THE GAP.

The best news of all was that the foam gun I had, that I thought was a goner (left w/o a can of foam) I managed to take apart and clean and now it works great. They ain't cheap and I already had to replace one.

And in really excellent news a month ago I got nabbed for speeding 46 in a 30, and I told the cop my current situation and he told me how to get the fine reduced.

I had traffic court today and got the city prosecutor to knock it down to a $150 parking ticket with a $50 surcharge (vs a few hundred plus 150 surcharge and points) and when I went in front of the judge I told him my doleful tale and he knocked it down to $50 parking ticket and $25 surcharge and 90 days to pay.

nowhereman's picture essay of the last bell factory in America is extremely poignant.

I have decided on a tattoo and had a "consultation" (which is like a cheeky free appointment because the tattoo artist is interested in what you are having done.

It has to wait until at least July for financial reasons, but I will think of it as my birthday present to myself. It's for Brianna, and for my sobriety.

I feel good having made the decision, even though no money has changed hands. I've only been thinking about it for two years after all...
I will have to put down a deposit at my "official" consultation, but of course that comes off the price of the actual tattoo.
It's not going to be large, but it will be visible.

There.
I feel I have taken another step by telling you on here.

Can you tell us the design, or is it a surprise?

Do you have 120,000 bumper stickers on the back of your car saying, "Who Rescued Who?"

Secret surprise. May let you know when I've actually got the design nailed (not literally). But I'm not sure of the timescale, it may be that by the time I approve it, the same session will be the actual ink. It's not large, but it is being drawn for me rather than me picking it out of a book.

In a group/ fundraising sort of thing? Or personally?
Either way it's cool.

I was at his training which was organized by a couple ladies from work who invited me to lunch. He's very dynamic in a crowd (ex football coach) and pretty chill in a small group. I tried not to be a fanboy. He started as an aide and now he'd this sought after Dr. The cool thing is he still works in the field. I don't know how many trainings I've taken from people who essentially washed out and make their living as experts.

Were these "washouts" giving you bad, outdated, or conflicting information?
I suspect this a subject where the training could be heavily influenced by the personal conclusions of the trainer.
