I know I did one on MTG before, but this is hands down my favorite Magic card ever printed.

I have many a good memories from this place. This is the Deer Park community pool. It was a big deal to get tags to go to this all summer, we were poor, I know that now. We could play at this pool open to close. I think I felt my first boob in that pool. It used to have a ten foot and twenty foot high dive. My buddy Robbie could do a swan dive off of that thing flawless, me I could do a cannon ball like nobody else. I really do miss that place.

This technically is supposed to be yesterdays post. I got them mixed up so sorry about that.
This is the booster pack that the doc gives me to get my gout flair ups under control. I don't like taking these at all. They work very well and get me feeling pretty darn normal in about 3 to 4 days, but they have a small side effect that I hate. The side effect is violent mood swings. In my case it's more like I have zero patience. The smallest things set me off. I blew up on the Home Depot guy the other day because he didn't know the difference between trim and base. Yesterday I found out that I lost my Mac store gift card and got so upset I became furious while searching for it. I was so full of rage and anger I started to cry. I could barely control myself. It took me a little over two hours to calm down, and the rest of the day to feel normal. I've got about 3 more weeks for this stuff to work its way out of my system and I can't wait for that to happen.
Do you like snow cones? If you are ever in the great little city of Deer Park there is a snow cone shack called Tropical Chill. It's been in business since I was a kid and they make the best snow cones hands down. I'm not being bias, I've tried many a snow cone and have yet to find one as good as theirs. I've found some that are close but none as good. So come on down and give them a try or let me know about your favorite snow cone shack and I'll see if they compare.
My flavor today was cherry with cream, it was yummy to my tummy.

Today class we are going to learn how to do a "2 color rag" faux finish.
1st apply your base coat.
2nd mix your glaze. This is done to preference. Most people will say a 4 to 1 ratio, (4 parts glaze to one part paint) or a 50/50 mix. I say play with them both to see what you like better. A 4 to 1 well give a more transparent layered look and is better if building multiple colors. A 50/50 will give a heavy vintage feel but you need to work it a lot more. This is usually for the more experienced.
3rd get a good sized rag and get it wet. Make sure to ring out all the water. Ball it in your hand and make sure it bunches up. The more bunches the better.
4th dip rag into glaze scrape most of the paint on the inner lip to remove excess, and pat surface. This technique is hard to describe. You want to pat the surface rapidly with small strokes. Pretend you're a drummer keeping a 2 beat per second ratio. Keep your hand moving and make sure to twist as well. (your hand, not your waist) Work in about a 2 foot square at a time. Glaze dries fast so step back to look at your area from time to time.
5th after glaze dries mix your metallic or 2nd color slightly thinner then the first glaze. If going metallic move fast and keep rag heavily saturated.
And there you have it you are now on your way to being a professional faux finisher.

Well here we go again lol. I know it's been two weeks since my last post but if you've been keeping up I haven't been well.
Sorry this is late g0bff
ha ha ha I literally passed out writing this
I was a typing this and fell asleep. It was late and I was tired so let me continue.
I was walking my dog this morning and I saw these bluebonnets. I'm not a fan of the bluebonnet like everybody else is, but because I'm from texas I love them. I had to grab a picture because I am a fan of flowers and these are pretty flowers.
