am suspecting you are joking, at least in part. 

It wasn't the plan, of course, but that's basically how it played out. Tire had been constantly leaking so I took it in to be checked out. While I was waiting I was looking at the deals that they had going on and saw that I could get something bigger and newer for pretty much the same price.

Done deal.

Out of curiosity, what was "bigger"?

I went from a sedan to a crossover/SUV because as my wife likes to say, I gave up on life.

Bored at work. Detailed the yard tractors, checked the oil, coolant concentration, tyres and working hours. Have nothing to do again. ._.

Also, I'm kind of regretting buying an M2 ssd for my computer, it's going to be a headache mounting it.

I recently traded in my car for a new (used) car. I was thiiiiiiiis close to 200k miles (199781) but it was starting to nickel and dime me so I had to let it go.

I hope my ancient '98 Subaru Legacy wagon doesn't konk out from 20+ year old parts breaking down, any time soon. it won't be from high mileage since I hardly drive anymore. Can I make it last 40 years? Might have to replace more hoses... 😛

I really don't want to have to buy a new/used car with all the computer tech in it. Or with the way they design windows now (which makes me feel like I can't see anything, especially side/back windows). Blech. Maybe by then I'll be able to get some revamped classic car (which by then will be from the 80's....) or something. Edit: sadly most 50's/60's/70's "classic" cars don't fit me well and not many people revamp early 80's Toyotas. Ha.

I have a 20 year old truck with 267k miles on it. Parts are actually pretty easy to find and replace.

My -98 volvo has done a bit short of 250k miles, or as I'd prefer to say it, I'm abnout to hit 400000km :)

Welcome to the forum, Rihanna. 

So tomorrow is my 41st birthday, and I think I crammed in enough major achievements in year 40 to level up safely. It was a good year.

There is something mesmerizing about it. I don't know why. I think I'm more into it than they are.

Going to start airsoft again, going to be a pain the first few times. :)

Going camping, swimming, and fishing with the pups at my place up near Indian Creek. It's gong to be a good weekend.

I was doing my once every 3-6month brief browse of GoG and realized at some point they'd added Hellfire to Diablo1. I still have that on original disc but I never liked it all that much and have never tried to install it on Win7 (or Win10). Still, you know I had to download it, since ez-Gog version (and since I already bought D1 from there, it was "free"). Might be good for winter boredom. 😛

Newest Harlequin model:

In her right hand is a Fusion Pistol, basically a handgun-sized version of the standard Melta-gun, and no less capable of, well, melting the armour of a Land Raider. Equipped in her right hand is the Harlequin's Caress, which enables her to phase-shift her hand, reach into the chest of her hapless victim, and pluck out his heart (or both, as is the case for Space Marines).

Hunter in the suburbs:

hawk-01.jpg

 

The neighbors behind us have kept small laying hens (and occasionally a rooster) in their backyard for a long time. They're the brown skinny type of hens. Lately it seems they just keep buying small chicks whenever they need replacements. They sometimes get in our yard via the tree and then can't figure out how to get back over the fence for a long time, ha.  They've put chicken wire around a corner of their yard to semi-enclose them but ...
... lately this small hawk has discovered their presence and terrible sounds occasionally happen. Neighbors chase it off if they notice but,  heh. They're going to need a real/secure chicken coop, since now that the hawk knows about them, it's going to come back every single day. I feel sorta bad for the chicks but not my yard. Pfft.  :P

 

Slightly closer look, crop: (hubby took on phone, no zoom, fuzzy etc)

Laid things out to see how it looked so far :

 

Armour_LayOut.thumb.jpg.3b9dd98cce1f86f3914612f184fdea21.jpg

A few small things to print out and it should be good to get started on the smoothing and finishing.

 

Although I've got to decide whether to find some design for a backplate and whether to re-do the helmet / mask properly....
