This past Sunday, my wife and I adopted a kitten from the Beatrice Humane Society and picked her up yesterday after work. Our cat, Kit, is not our kitten's biggest fan. But this one just loves to cuddle up.

Thanks. Apparently they say upwards of a year before the other cat will warm up to them. But we'll see. Been making progress at least. Fortunately my wife works 4 days a week so she'll be at home and she can have those two get better acquainted and with no attitude. Not very straight forward. It wasn't a spur of the moment thing adopting this one. We had been talking for a while and the opportunity came up, so we jumped on it.

Found a Bird Baja on Craigslist today! Seller's asking $300 for it, running and driving, but not really stopping. Brakes just slow you down anyways!

Eventually I'd like to get a Bird Baja to start my nest of Birds(get it?).

Could be a Baja Magnum, but of course you can't see any decals through the leaves in the floorpan.

If you're already planning on getting one, then jump on this one! You might be able to talk them down a bit.

*sigh* I would, but I'm reaaal short on money right now. Blew it all on airsoft stuff lately, the accessories add up fast! Plus at any rate my dad would never let me bring home another kart until I clear some more projects out, and since it's on the other side of Ft Worth, I can't just get it on my own without someone in my family finding out.

ARGH!

I know the feeling! I found a single seater Dingo for $250 but didn't go for it because I already have too much on the go and am trying to thin out stuff....

I'll give it to you, airsoft is a lot of fun and expensive, long as you don't buy the Walmart specials and you get the good ones that are steel and aluminum. They last so much longer than plastic and are quite durable. My friend had quite a few, probably close to $4000 in it. A paintball place near us, MN Pro Paintball allowed airsoft to take place after many years.
