    I got a lead, I should have the bounty in my sights on Monday or Tuesday (got an interview/drug test at MY convenience). I'll post my results for the hunt when I get em.

    I finished cutting the brest plates and belly plates for my twin 5 yr boys, and painted them purple/green and silver/green color change.

    I'll post pics tomorrow when I get the rest cut out and painted.

    Ok, got most of the twins stuff cut and painted (ran out of black paint so cant finish) Just need to make chest diamonds and shoulder bells. Decided all of us are gonna have capes, part of the clan calling card. Wow, 5 sets of armor, and only 1 bucket so far....... hmmm I guess I gotta get to work on some more buckets (starting with my custom)..

    Also, as I was cutting the collar pieces for the small set's, I got a huge blob of melted PVC plastic on my hand and burned my palm, so if anyone is gonna do this with the trash cans, and cut with a dremmel, use gloves and eye protection, I'm a nurse, I should know better, but hey scars of love baby, scars of love.

    Even if it is a One way love, ya know, Tears may fall. <- 80's music, I must be breathing too much paint fumes

    Lots of pics:

    Nope, but I am in San Diego, look up Exploration Falls Dr. 91915 on Google maps, my house is like a block off of it, and you can see the mountain about a mile east of me... It refelcts a heck of a lot of heat in the summer, man today was actually hot enough to open all the windows, maybe I should stop spraying all that paint into the ozone layer

    I never got that you were in San Diego...my grandma has a condo in Oceanside! We should meet up when I'm over there sometime!

    lol, I've had my windows open all winter, I only close them in summer to keep the hot out!

    well it does get below 40 degrees out here, so I cant leave the windows open all the time, but most of the time.

    Lemme know when you visit your Grandma, we'll hit it up. She's in OceanSlide huh, nice place.

    Small update, got an interview tomorrow, so hopefully will have a new job by tomorrow night.

    As for the armor, I repainted the kids armor, I will post pics tomorrow night.

    The silver/green is much better, and shiney. I changed the purple/green to red/blue instead since I have enough paint to do the buckets in both of those colors.

    As for my older son's red, I got green/copper which mostly looks like a really dark red.

    Any way will post pics tomorrow.

    yeah, i'm a little lost with all this colorful plastic laying around, now I gotta get back to work to pay the bills, then start 4 more buckets, and I think I will make the vest's myself like you and Cod'ika did.

    My bounty is being watched by an informant on the inside, I will hopefully move in for the capture in a day or two... I have however found a second and third bounty, 1 of them I can take anytime, the other I will be waiting about a week for info.... But the first bounty is the one I need, the second will pay good, but will need my skills to be placed in different situations daily, as for the 3rd, I need more info for my skill set.

    In other words, I have 1 job that I can take anytime, but it is a registry so I would have to go from hospital to hospital, and be placed in situations that I may not be ready for, the 3rd is a home health nurse... I have never done home health, but they will do some training and then meet and greet with the patient/family, so it may be cool, but wont know til next week.. as for the one I want, it's in a behavioral health (psych) setting, and I know someone who works there, and I think it would be better to have a single place to work.

    As for the armor, thanks for the compliment vod, I plan on sneeking to the postoffice tomorrow to get more envelopes to start the custom bucket. And I got an email saying that my girth belt has shipped... I went with 'natural' for the color since I am not going with any brown in my armor.

    http://www.horseloverz.com/Centaur-N...pr-179174.html

    their shipping is a little excessive, I will let you know when it gets here.
