Shit, I've been away for a while and I come back to all kinds of bad news. Sorry for everyone's losses and struggles, stay strong.

Earlier this month we found out my dog had a type of cancer in her mouth. She needed surgery to remove the lump and while they were in there, they found some teeth that needed to be pulled. It ended up being a lot more than we thought it would be and it really set us back this Christmas. So it's been a stressful (and broke) month, but we're getting back on our feet and my dog is doing so much better. The cancer hadn't spread and they were able to remove the entire mass, so that's good. They just need to keep a close eye on it to make sure it doesn't come back. I'm just glad Christmas is over with and we can start getting back to normal.

well,even though it was tough on you,it sounds like you did the right thing and all is looking good for you and your family.

 

here is to a great 2018 for all of us !

We've slowly, but surely been having plumbing, namely drainage problems.  Today it finally became a problem that couldn't be ignored.  Fortunately we called an honest plumber that instead of coming out and charging a few hundred bucks to tell us he couldn't do anything, he listened to the details and told us we probably needed our septic tank emptied.

We called the local company that handles that type of thing and they had a truck here in about 30 minutes.  Within a little over an hour he had found the tank, dug thru the frozen ground and pumped 30 years of... well you know.  What we were afraid was going to be a costly expense was only $295... good shit!

No kidding. We were preparing ourselves for much worse and were very happy to pay $300.

Minor shitty thing... broke my 4-speed about 6 weeks back. I was attempting a 2-3 shift at 4000 RPMs and it came out of 3rd gear hard. I limped home with a noisy transmission using 4th gear. Found a local guy to fix it up for only $400 which included a new cluster gear and some better used parts.

I've been away from the boards for a while, and away from tattooing for a while also. Lots of shittiness happening. Can't want for this year to be over with.

My car needed lots of repair work, totaling up a little over $1000. More wedding expenses, many of them unexpected, and just lots of general headaches with trying to get everything running smoothly and finished. Worst news of all is my dog's cancer came back more aggressively. This time it's in her bladder and where the tumor is, they can't risk operating without messing up her bladder and really destroying her quality of life. She was given 6 months to a year a couple months back, and is on an anti-inflammatory medicine that's supposed to slow the process down a little more, buying us maybe an additional 6 months. She's in great spirits and doesn't show signs of being sick at all, so we're hoping maybe she's feisty enough to make it past the projected timeline.

Shazbot! Took the Hunley out for a Sunday ride. Started blowing headlight fuses, so headed back home after only 20 miles. Coming down our steep, concrete, tree shaded drive, all traction decided to leave and I stuck her in the woods near the bottom. Pulled her out with the winch on the wife's mule and soft straps. Looks like I get to touch up the barbeque paint on the headers and re-polish the right valve cover and belt cover. And, find the short in the headlight circuit. Ok, only a little shitty. But, Knoxville Tattoo Convention is this coming weekend, and I show the Hunley at WingDing the next week!08a02a41591cc96acf736ad01aa6d798.jpg733d74c54c622d852816583aadacf89f.jpg

well, 

I had to put down my beloved pug-dog 2 months ago.

My wife and I are separating and she moved out of our house this weekend.

It's -40 Celcius in my city and my winter beater died.

...but hey, my tattoos still look awesome, so everything is gonna be alright...sigh...

ah, thanks @JAC1961 honestly this is all for best.

I don't think I have ever had an opportunity for life freedom like this. Just shy of 40 and everything else in my life is going awesome, so I'm focusing on that.

New beginnings...hey prob some more tattoos 😉 in places that weren't approved under the marriage contract haha.

    • Who knows! It hurt a lot though, so I'm not sure if I want to do it again. This piece took me about 6 hours of tattooing plus one hour consult/aftercare. I'm super happy with it! (I hope pictures are okay in this thread, though it looks more crisp IRL)
    • You have more of a chance of F***ing it up than making it better if you start monkeying around with it. Go see a really good artist to get some ideas of what to add around it. There's nothing wrong with that tattoo. 
    • I'm healing a back of calf, about half in the ditch right now myself. Thin, tender skin. I don't see anything that looks like an infection.
