How much and what condition is it?
$58, “extremely fine”

There are shiny uncirculated ones for a few bucks more, but I like the early year and lightly used look anyway. I used to collect coins as a kid but only ever bought a bunch of liberty walking half dollars. Now I want to get a handful of different designs. Think an early half penny might be next

Oh, 10 praying mantis eggs....found 1 in the shop last fall. 1st time that I've seen one since Perk was a kid. 1 egg per 3K sqft....my hood is fixing to be blessed. :D
From the ones I gave to my sis in law. I put mine outside to hatch but I think they became food.

The Dance of Death Print: The skelton is pointing a crossbow at your life. Death is coming, and in the end there is no escape. I love the hour glass on the left side as well.

An hourglass rests by his back foot. A broken arrow sits beside it and there is another one in the quiver.

There is no broken arrow... :confused_old:


EDIT: nvm. The art print is different from the original engraving. I'm stupid!

Newegg had a $10 off promo & I had a $10 gift-card .... So much for willpower lol! (was holding out for a 5900x but not for $800!)

Ryzen 5800x incoming @ $429 + tax shipped. :cool:

Congrats .... car-shopping SHOULD be fun however IME it's anything but!

:p
Yeah, I don't think there is any kind of shopping in life I hate more than cars (even compared to finding a house). Real property has several checks built in.

They just play so many games when it comes to car pricing, and there are so few consumer protection laws when it comes to advertised price / profit fees "required" dealer charges.

Unfortunately I just assume I'm dealing with a 100% pure scammer anytime I set foot in any car dealer.

While I'm sure there MUST be an honest and upfront car salesman out there somewhere I've yet to meet them!

LOL, I've never had that happen, at least not yet. Why can't you ride?

Lol - just don't try silver shoes o_O Stick with black.

Back problems - fell down the basement stairs in 2009 and have had problems since. After I recover a bit from some injections into my SI joint in a few weeks, I may try riding on my trainer again. I picked up an extender for the steering tube that jacks the height of the drop bars up so I'm not bent over so much. I've never given it a proper attempt. I wouldn't feel safe riding on the road with it thou, put on too much weight.

Putting on weight is what got me back on a bike. Back problems suck, so I hear you. Good luck to you if you do give the trainer a shot.
