Abundance of Food, AC again and Red Dead Screen Cap  
I think today I will be done with the pic of George out in the desert. I think this will turn out lovely. Very excited. Need to start his shading, which is always tricky for me. And today I may upload the last set of photos from my trip. I need to finish the videos for the trip too. I don't have all my music for it so I haven't felt like it. I don't want to post those pics today because I think I will be posting a lot here today and I don't like doing more than three posts a day, which for me seems too much.

Ok so first off....



Last time we went to the dump this big tiger was there. So funny. It's kind of sad some of the things people throw out that aren't do badly damaged. I don't know why they threw away this huge tiger. If they didn't have room they could have given it away. I'm sure any kid would have loved it. But the guys that work there salvage things which is good. You should see how many TV's and stereos they have in the little shade area they work. I just think it's funny how the tiger is there "enforcing" the rules.

The other day Chris went to do a job at a lady's house. Turns out she's some famous pastor that had a TV show. I think her name is Pastor Pat. Well she was very impressed with Chris's performance finding her leak she insisted on giving him a bunch of food. She wouldn't take no for an answer and even gave him a tip. Chris called me and said we would not be able to eat all this food. Way too much food but it was so funny. He said the passenger seat was filled. I told him I wanted to get a pic when he got home.



This is so funny. But it's all mostly pastries and breads. Too bad there weren't any meats. We brought it inside so I could sort it.





This is everything I decided to keep. Unfortunately those two loafs of Egg Bread had humidity in them and they got mold. Everything else was fine but I was so looking forward to that egg bread.



Angry Birdz cup cakes. I'm not a fan of that game because it looks terrible, but this was funny so I figured I'd keep it since I wanted to keep the little round bird things. I had one and unfortunately they are not as good as they look. I only ate half and didn't like it.



What we're not keeping. We're going to give this to whoever we can. His mom probably, friends, bums on the street. Just got to get rid of it before it goes bad. Chris took some yesterday and gave cookies to a customer and gave something else to a random bum.



A pretty Tersa Sphinx on our screen door. I LOVE these because this was the first Sphinx I ever raised.



I took this screen cap of Red Dead Redemption because this is the closest I have ever gotten to crows without having to kill them. Usually they fly away, but for some reason these didn't and I was able to get a pic. Notice John's outfit looks just like George's. I'm so glad I found that and like to imagine he's George, despite being too skinny.

That's all for now. My pumpkins and squash are doing great! I need to get updated pics of those too. Sigh, I'm so behind on so much stuff!

EDIT: Forgot to talk about our AC. The day before yesterday it ran out of freeon again. I got really pissed about it and it was so hot that night. It happens once a hear usually in the spring and I'm ready for it. But this time it happened way too soon. The means the leak has gotten bigger. I don't like it twice in the same year. Possibly more. I was mad because that's more money we don't need to be spending. I'm still saving for our trip and that would set me back. So yesterday the guy came and refilled it. Cost us $255 same as last time. The price to repair it if they can find the parts is around two thousand. For a whole new unit it's four thousand five hundred. $500 a year isn't as bad as that. I just hope it won't happen again the rest of this year.

Current Mood: Busy

Looks like she cleared out some store's bakery counter and gave it all to you. I have those cupcake toppers. The guy at Target gave me some for free because they have so many. My brother's nephew is a huge Angry Birds fan, and I used them to decorate his birthday cake.

That moth is cute. It looks soft like it should be petable.

Yeah, she gives food to churches and charity and I guess people that do jobs around her house. Hehe, it was so funny. I don't hate that game, but I'd be more inclined to play it if the characters were a little more serious. Though angry expressions are always funny. That's cool you have some of those toppers.

I bet you he is very soft. But I will never pet a moth again. I petted one of the ones I raised and he was soft, but those hair like scales all came off where I touched him. They stick to your oils and the poor thing though he was brand new had an ugly bald spot and you could see his hard shell below it. I felt so bad.

Made a small edit. Forgot to log that we had our air repaired again.

I don't know if I'll be the only one, but in place of all the photos you posted are big block ads saying: "Look who's popular now. Is this your photo? Upgrade to Plus for additional bandwidth. signed Photobucket." over and over again in place of your photos. Just letting you know.

Oh, and then down where it says current mood, there a little box ad saying the same thing and the word "busy"

I will have to remake these posts. What a shame because the pics were so interesting. I need to move them somewhere where I won't run out of bandwidth.

Like Earthmother, I can't see your photos either :(
Des: Ophidius Incredulousthagirion on August 14th, 2013 01:27 am (UTC)
Sorry about that. I will let you know when I move the pics to some other place.
Desthagirion on August 14th, 2013 11:40 am (UTC)
Please have another look now at the posts. I just fixed them.
 Shannon  シャノン: winkshampoo_neko02 on August 14th, 2013 04:12 am (UTC)
I was about to say none of your photos are working.
Damn photobucket. >_
Des: Owen Painedthagirion on August 14th, 2013 11:41 am (UTC)
I am not happy with Photobucket right now. Please look through my two posts again. I just fixed the images.
 Shannon  シャノン: utenashampoo_neko02 on August 14th, 2013 07:15 pm (UTC)
I can see the pictures now! I know where you do your shopping.
PUBLIX!!
I used to work there, in the bakery. lol
Desthagirion on August 14th, 2013 07:29 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you can see them. Publix are all over the south.

I can't see your photos, either :( And they sounded so interesting!

Gyro got #2 granddaughter a giant tiger. She loves it, and would never throw it out. Some people just don't have the room, though. You're right, they should be recycled, not thrown out.

I agree, that lady sounds like she got an end of day bakery stuff. Most of it is probably stale. maybe your chooks would like some of it.
Des: Jafar Annoyedthagirion on August 14th, 2013 11:43 am (UTC)
I know. Photobucket played a dirty trick on me. I just fixed the ones that matter so please look again.

Yeah, it's a shame what gets thrown out but at least the employees there do seem to salvage stuff.

I'm keeping the Cuban bread for them.
kabuldur: Asterkabuldur on August 15th, 2013 09:47 am (UTC)
I looked again and can now see your photos!

I forgot to say, I'm glad you got your air con fixed. You would have been suffering without it!

Expensive options, whichever way you look at it. And probably not livable without it.
The Silver Wolf of Darkness: Silvolf Loves Cheesesilvolf on August 14th, 2013 09:08 pm (UTC)
Lol I feel hungry now XD If I was there, I would have had all the food you didn't want. The Angry Birds cakes are cute, pity they tasted bad.
Glad your pumpkins and squash are doing so well!
Des: Budgiesthagirion on August 14th, 2013 09:26 pm (UTC)
I would have gladly given it to you. We have been giving it away. Chris had the brilliant idea to give it to the construction workers today. They loved it. Yes, the pumpkins are doing well so far.
kabuldur: Asterkabuldur on August 15th, 2013 09:49 am (UTC)
That was a brilliant idea of Chris's. I'm glad you guys found some people who appreciated it. There certainly was a lot of it. No way you and Chris could have eaten it all!

Thaaaat is one epic food pron post! Awww sucks that the Angry Birds cupcakes were crap. D:

Also I would've liked to have that tiger! I got this big life-like jaguar one in my room. ^.^
