post #58391 of 62526

Got my ears pierced to celebrate graduating from nurses training. Got my second piercing when my mother died-kind of a grief thing. Got a left ear cartilage piercing for the heck of it, got my belly button pierced when I met DH and got my first tattoo on our first wedding anniversary. It is on my rt shoulder, two eagle feathers bound together with a leather thong and adorned with beads that when you count them are our wedding date. Eagle feathers represent the healing arts so it is fitting and proper. I'm 63 and a half years old and don't regret any of my body art. I got my tattoo where I could choose if and when anyone was to see it and my piercings have never turned any heads.

 

I once took care of a delightful old woman with Alzheimer's disease who had more than 6 piercings per each ear, each hole filled with a diamond earring. I figured if she could do it, so could I, LOL.

My younger sister got a piecing done on the ear pressure point for her headaches. She has allergies to a lot of medications.

She says the piecing's helped.

 

My second ear piercings seemed to bring on a sensitivity with wearing inexpensive earrings that I didn't have with my first holes. I rarely wear earrings anymore. Not worth the hassle. I wear a ton of rings and they don't seem to bother me. :idunno 

 

Both DH and myself are the about the only ones around who don't have a single tattoo. Which is kind of cool...lol.

Both of my tattoos can be hidden the one on my wrist by my watch and the one on my rt. shoulder is never shown.

I had 4 piercings in my ears when I was young and now I can get an earring in one hole in each ear if I choose to wear earrings. I rarely do.

I don't like most of my kids and grandchildren' tattoo's. They are big and cannot be hidden in public most of the time. At least one son did get his on his calf so that other people don't see it if he goes to work.

I have never liked big tattoo's that hang out. And I have some family that has them.

My youngest daughter is married to a lady that has 4 children. And most people do not like or accept her life style.

She had a large tattoo put on her back that say's "Let the wicked judges be judged". I am one of the biggest homophobes she knows.

And it was very hard for me to accept her life choices. But after much prayer the good Lord told me that he understood I could not stop loving my child. That what ever she does is between him and her. I love that! And I can accept that..

​Thanks. It was not an over night acceptance and that's for sure. But I also did ask her to be respectful to me as did her sisters ask her to be around their young children and she has been always. :)

I love the fact that Alabama is so family orientated and the cost of living is exactly why I moved here back in 1989. But my grandmother was born here and so were all her family.

I still had to work 2& 3 jobs to support my children but at least I could afford it here. :)

So amazing doodles :love  :hugs I understand.  The Lord had to teach me I was to stop blaming myself for my son's choices.  He had been shown the right path,   it was his choice to take the other road, deny Him and choose the darkness.  My job was to love him, the rest was between them.

Funny how tho our children's choices were different, the message to us moms was the same.

He said it would lose power pulling a big hill in snow and the car just wouldn't make it, he'd have to turn around go back down and try again. He hated the car so much that winter he said he always left the keys in it hoping someone would steal it Lol! We have long steep grades here in the Catskill Mountains.

I thought he said it was something to do with the motor taking over the electric too late but I was just looking them up, it looks like they had a problem with mountains in snow where the traction control would actually decelerate the motor/loose power. I don't know if this is something they have addressed and fixed now.

 

The traction control can not be defeated. I believe it is because the electric motor could burn if it over spins. So yes, there are locations and conditions where a Prius would be a bad choice.

You sound like my daughters (21 & 23). The REALLY don't want to call someone on the phone. DD2 wanted to drive 30 miles to Walmart to see if they had a specific product in stock rather than talking to a stranger on the phone for 1 minute. I said no (it is my car, my gas ;) ) Tough love I suppose. It is something one needs to get over. You don't need to enjoy it but the more you do it the less it will bother you.

Can easily be more than that! My chicken feed runs $11 - $12 per 50 pounds. Dog food ($2 off sale at TSC) $31/40 pounds.

I would go with a high Joule electric fence and buried fence "skirt". How many chickens are you willing to lose if the coyotes aren't all that offended by moth balls?

Now there is an idea. Then if you decide you would like a change or it begins to lose its shape and crispness as you age (as it most likely will), you don't need to have them lasered off.
