Some sympathy please ...

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

Some sympathy please ...

Post by sweetandsour » Wed Sep 06, 2017 7:16 pm

... for my aching knees.

Miscellaneous nics and cuts mostly. The small, smooth, verticle-but-slightly-curved cut is from a double-bladed ax. Silly me.

Those kinds of things are what will kill you out in Hewa. Everyone wants to know about the dangerous snakes and spiders and weird insects, but it's cuts like that that will do you in.

Not sympathy, but respect. I know how you got that way.

Probably not your worst idea. Of course, a little Teacher's taken internally would be more fortifying.

Wherever we go in the world we find other men speaking the same language...dreaming the same dreams. And one of the big four - brownie, or brookie, cutthroat or rainbow - is the cause of it all.

If that we're so, I wouldn't have posted it in the youth room, but rather prayer request, or at least the FH.

That? I'm surprised that he shaves his legs. That he uses a double bladed ax seems rather primitive.
Just let the hair grow. It's safer. I've seen women with hairier legs.

Yeah, really. I'm looking into the Teachers suggestion. Maybe it'll grow some hair on my legs.

You should if you can get it. It will not blow your socks off, but it's has a very high peated malt content (The Ardmore, not a Johnnie Walker mishmash of different malts). 43% alcohol by volume, $16.99 per liter. It's the house scotch here--put into a crystal decanter I was given for our wedding so nobody knows. Never have I received a complaint.

Use water, not ice. Best if consumed after ax work and not before.

How on earth do the locals manage to avoid cuts and scratches? And in the jungle of all places? Or do they regularly use some kind of traditional balm or something?
