Zipper, I like it. Some surgical scars look like zippers.

We'll see what PF thinks. If Shrek already has tats and piercings, this may fit in.

i am now the owner of a fully grown horseshoe moustache.

i was shaving my hockey playoff beard today when my son came home from school. he asked me if i could grow a long moustache like "sensei wu", a character on on of his favourite cartoons. so i did.

it doesn't quite look like the sensei wu's long fu manchu moustache, but rather more like the old yankee reliever goose gossage's or paul tuetel, sr.'s of orange county chopper.

when my boy saw me, he said that i looked like a real, old time baseball manager and begged me to keep it until our next game - alongside dw's protestations and obvious embarrassment. she said she won't be seen in public with me so long as i have it.

then i came up with a great idea! we have a game against a team that has a really nasty, over-competitive coach (who preaches at coaches' meetings in front of the board that we should teach by example, but in reality curses and belittles the kids and other coaches in spanish during games thinking she can get away with it), so i decided to show her that we're supposed to have fun teaching these little 6 to 8 year old kids the game of baseball, not teach them bad sportsmanship. i'm not only going to show up with the moustache, but i'm bringing a hypoallergenic black grease pencil and the entire team is going to go out on the field with horseshoe or fu manchu moustaches.

i'll have to get permission from the boys' parents first, i guess, but this should be funny.

I'm glad to hear Shrek is doing so much better.

I don't think I've been that scared when I've actually been IN an accident.

It was only a short hop from home so I didn't start shaking til after I got in. Now I'm just going to power down and enjoy being alive tonight.
I'm so glad you are okay!

You all need to quit scaring me like that! I'm getting too old for all this horrible excitement (accidents, illnesses, etc.). It's a good thing my DC family is on my regular prayer list!

We have three metal detectors and two pin pointers (short range mini detectors) here. They can pick up all kinds of metals. There are different settings on them to pick up different kinds of targets/metals.
We have recovered gold (rings, pendants, necklaces, coins), silver (rings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets, coins), copper (jewelry and pure copper rock), brass (hose fixtures, war buttons), steel, tin, iron ore, nickel, tungsten, and any combination of metals used to make coins through the ages.
I have no information on the type of metal detectors used at airports.

So glad he's doing better! (sorry Shrek)
I don't think I want to try getting them back...I have one tiny diamond and two strings of pearls...

He does have tatts and his left ear is pierced. The smiley scar he got last year for the hernia repair is now bisected. Good thing he is an ogre and not a vampire.

Sitting here watching Latté try to lay on my bag, her butt keeps sliding off. I don't know why she is so determined to lay on something that is so lumpy, there is at least one can of V-8 in it.

I'm off to the audiologist this morning -- PC doc wants to get a baseline test for any hearing loss and see about my tinnitus, for which he's already told me there's not much (if anything) to be done. Guess there's no way to cram for a hearing test.
