I dunno.


Not too sure I like the idea of some other guy checking out Mrs. Racer's hoo hah. No matter, her Gyno Doc is a woman.


Gives me that peace if mind, you know?
That custom work was excellent. Peace of mind is in the mind.....that custom work is not in the imagination!

On to another favorite subject.....

I've been drawing with kids. Here's mine.
Not bad!

I see potential there, not bad at all. As a world famous drawing artist, I think that if you work at it you can go far.....

You have a long way to go to reach my abilities, but I was just born gifted to draw, not everyone is.
I'm impressed by humble Rupert's humility. Much like that of Picasso.

Obstetrics is a highly litigious specialty.
Amy's right. OBs pay the highest malpractice premiums of any specialty. They did when I was still in the medical field, anyway and I can't think of any reason it would have changed.
If ANYTHING isn't perfect with the delivery and the baby it's the doctor's fault.
Mom may smoke drink, and use every schedule 1 and 2 drug known but if the kid has a physical defect or turns out to have an I.Q. of 45 it must be because of something the doctor and/or medical staff did or failed to do.

That's not quite what my Mom had to say about me.

Yes, I do project a lot of humility....I can agree with that! I don't do a lot of drawings, it just drains me of so much energy and makes it hard to get back to doing......not much of anything.

Currently I am a little worn from baiting Cheater Branches......decided to do a little squirrel fishing this afternoon. So far not much luck....it's in the middle of squirrel siesta time.

There's 3 words I don't think I've ever seen used in the same sentence.

Yeah. Your only fault, Jim, is that you're too modest.

I just don't get enough credit for it.....unless I post my drawings which always draw an envious crowd. As always, I encourage young artists, even knowing they will never reach my level of skill and artistic mastery.

Wow! Now that is some hard work and superb it is! Curious...how long did that take her?
Two months of love, some would say obsession!

That reminds me....my Grandmother on my Mom's side was a quilter. She always had a quilting frame hung from her bedroom ceiling and was always working on a quilt. They were works of art and I think every family member got at least one. The ladies would all get together and work on them back in those days.
Yeah, quilting doesn't seem to be quite as important in Australia to, how shall I say it? "Ladies of a certain age".

A shame, because it seems to be a more social pursuit than knitting. The lovely @MicroMacro told me about the Ravelry website, but of course my wife's all over it already!

I always thought gynecology would be a good practice to explore.
Q. What does a gynaecologist do when he feels sentimental?
A. He looks up an old girlfriend.

My squirrel fishing was a failure today. Drunk and disorderly squirrels fell asleep and Jays got all the peanuts and peanut butter.

This little troublemaker squirrel was sent to investigate the scene of the crime......he said he picked up a "fowl" scent and will hunt down the thieves and dish out some squirrel justice.



Like all good fishermen, there is always tomorrow to try again.

This little pervert aspires to be a gynecologist, but until he gets his degree he spends his spare time practicing looking up girls skirts.....

Do not close the thread. Even if Pentax dude lost all resistance to his self imposed matter of rectitude.

Besides the thread is not really about K3s, is it?

I'm sitting here at 1:54 am local time. Just got home from work, and signed on here. The room I'm in is upstairs in my house, it has been warm and the windows are all open, and the room is pleasantly cool, and summer fresh.

Peaceful.

So anyaway, I'm cruising Pentax Forums, catching up on the day's happenings and discussions, in this pleasant late night air. Suddenly, in the woods nearby, begins the most eerie sounds.

Howling.

Yipping.

Screeching.

Then the neighbors dogs up the road start barking.

What the heck?

I go out on the porch that faces East, away from the river, towards the woods. The sounds are crazy, and spooky. Then I realize, it is a pack oh coyotes bickering. It didn't sound like the dogs got involved, only the coyotes.

Such an eerie sound they made.

All quiet now.

Too quiet maybe.

Hope we aren't about to have another earthquake.

Strange noises from the animals that you describe.

I was away from here a few weeks because I am on holiday with only occasional internet connection, and most of that through my phone with a little keypad space and busy doing stuff.

Drove by Ned Kelly's last stand, at Glenrowan yesterday. Will be another week or more before I get normal internet again. And then there is the overwhelming workload punishment for taking a holiday. Such is life.
