    Winds, if you want to take a quick road trip, I'd be happy to take those suckers out for you.
    Just point me in the right direction and I'll start digging.

    Should have em out in about 5 minutes, and then I'll fix breakfast for you & Balota.

    If you would like to pick up knitting I have an excellent tutorial.

    I’m ready to take you up on that. I keep telling Balota to take them out while I’m sleeping, but he won’t.
    Do you knit? I knit and crochet.

    Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) was seen out this weekend sporting a face mask as a good example to her constituents.
    Or maybe not.

    It wasn’t a fluke.
    She wore it that way all day.

    I just started learning a few months ago, I'm much better at crochet but I've had more practice at it.

    Me, too. Much better at crochet. But I like the look of the knit stitch better. I have learned how to pick up a dropped stitch and I can increase and decrease and I know how to undo a row or two.

    We need as a country to have sex with the WHO . Really, **** it.
    I hope Trump stops funding it.

    Lindsey said last night he's going to save Trump the trouble. He claims he'll shut the funding down from the senate.

    It's about time. WHO has been known to be corrupt for quite a while. No surprise really. It's just another UN debacle agency.

    I would go two steps farther: unass the UN and leave it. nothing there but bash Israel and give money to people who brag about how old their culture is but can't feed what they breed.

    knitting...

    I can go though 2" high stack of old financial linebar and find the one line in the whole stack that explained everything. I can adjust my loading press to 0.001"... but knitting???

    we had jobs at work that were like knitting, or shucking corn: your hands did all the work, your mind was not involved. once you had your hands trained you could get paid to work, and use your brain for a whole different thing.

    I made a scarf. That's literally it. You're much better than me.
    That's what I like about crochet. I need to keep my hands busy and other than counting stitches I can focus on other things. I usually do it while watching Netflix.

    Hope he can. Doesn’t the House
    That's what I like about women. While we pound on the table and pace the cabin, they actually do something productive and nice :)

    Yes like they should get seniority at the table.

    I've used 3M masks, they would have failed miserably.

    Boyfriend got laid off today, kw is closing his shop permanently. ****ty timing if you ask me. Usually a diesel mechanic can find a job within a day just about anywhere but no one is hiring right now. I get that this is pretty unpredictable but I imagine this wasn't a decision that was made in the last week.

    Also I feel like I'm a terrible girlfriend, I don't know what to say or what to do to help. I'm not great at comfort and reassurance, I do anxiety and panic attacks, that's kinda my thing.
