    The ones I buy and use, look like this one. I bought 8 last time for about $45, they're washable and reusable, N-95 equivalent. I can get about 6-8 uses and washes out of each before they start start to feel like they're getting thinner. And my work will reimburse me for them.

    They stay on me face really well, I can breath just fine through them. It was noticeable when I first started wearing them, but now I don't really notice aside from my face gets a bit warmer and a little sweaty where they do cover my face. But other than that, they're not an inconvenience at all.

    the army uses black masks very much like the one in your pic. I just don't like the behind the ear loops style myself. And of course for hunting I want as much skin covered as I can and it's going to be better than having my camo makeup running :whew: when it's 90+ degrees in September when bow season opens.

    My next experiment is seeing if I can actually do extended cardio workouts wearing these masks. My gym doesn't require masks, but if I can wear one and still get enough airflow - - and not get overheated - I'll start wearing one at the gym.

    Shit... I posted the wrong mask. The ones I use have the over the head straps. It looks like this one, except the mask is black, I did get s few that are dark grey, and one that is I guess what you would call maroon. I don't like the over the ear ones, they start to sort of hurt after a while. I wear a mask for up to ten hours a day, sometimes longer. The over the head strap ones look like this, except they're not blue.

    cats always look like they are completely focused - as opposed to dogs with an attention span measured in microseconds. :lol:

    Cats are always focused. “Must find something to kill . . .”

    they are killing machines! A dog will die (or be forced to eat garbage) if they can't find a dog pack to join if they are dumped outside after living indoors for years. A cat will start killing/eating almost immediately. Granted dogs don't have the speed, stealth, reflexes, athleticism or focus to hunt solo, that's why they are social animals. Nothing wrong with that, being social animals is what makes them loyal, dependable, obedient and much more useful when trained for a specific purpose.

    Thus your dog (even a tiny dog) will defend to the death your family from an intruder. A cat will hope the intruder left the door ajar, so it can get the hell out of dodge before the shit hits the fan.

    Anyone want a baby cedar tree or two? I pulled them out of the ground yesterday and potted them because I didn't have the heart to trash them.

    too cute! One of my cats has a toy beetle (insect not car) that it's very attached to. This beetle has been passed down from cat-to-cat for many years.

    about once a month she'll catch a mouse in here, providing me with something to watch for an hour or three.
    Problem is if I don't see it, she'll often leave it on my bed for me as if I'm too useless to hunt on my own.

    I'm like, "Bitch, where do you think your kibble comes from?".

    Got a new trail camera to hang behind the fence and see what critters pass through in the night.
    The deer go right ahead and disrespect it.

    I can't wait to see if one of those "NJ devils" shows up on camera! Yeah I know that's a different part of NJ but work with me here!

    AHA! Caught ya, ya poopin' bitch!

    00000007.JPG
    Further investigation this morning reveals a pile of deer poop at that exact location.
    My surveillance finally paid off.

    Now... why is there an eye-glow by my front door in this one pic, and what's the deer staring at? :unsure:

    I haven't cooked lamb ribs in a while.

    trail cams don't need much clarity since they are mainly used for hunting (especially deer). If you don't hunt I'll explain it: they are mainly for recon/patterning purposes. Having a lot of cheap trail cameras out gives you a pretty good idea of where/when and general information about size, gender, quantity, etc. of deer in your hunting areas so you can better plan your strategy. No, I don't use them - feeding deer (that's a thing too) and seeing the same deer over & over is too much like shooting a pet! Deer are already getting semi-tame as it is....I want some sense of adventure & mystery when I hunt.
    Getting too familiar with deer turns a hunter into a rancher IMHO.

    Have you considered starting your own YouTube channel with model making tips/tricks/how to's? If it works out well, it could be a really good source of income.
