Ok......ok, I went outside and took a picture of it parked in the street. It's almost 1am, so this pic turned out kind of dark.

20 minutes on photo editor, and I can't even pull an outline. I'm calling shenanigans. :damnit1:

If you're not making mistakes, you're not learning.

It's almost 7:30 there, or 6:30, or 5:30, depending on what side of Texas you're on, so it is technically THE day

It's a little after 8 where Jim is.

If he was up until 1 taking blacked-out pictures he will probably just be getting up soon.

I've been up since 4:30. I was at my buddy's shop last night doing some tires for my dad and whacked my head on the foot of the tire changer's arm. Couldn't sleep because my head hurt.

I can feel a little scab right there, so I think my hat, that I don't usually wear, is the only thing that kept me from splitting my scalp open.

Rub some dirt on it followed by a little dirty oil and it will heal up in no time.

Make sure to clean/sanitize the wound first though useing brake cleaner/carb cleaner.

(Gasoline works in a pinch).
