Open Thread: Hardware Moose

I don't know much about hardware moose, but I think that when the antlers fall off people harvest the tools and such then sell them in the store this representation of one was on the outside of.

This was seen between the rhododendron droppings and the bus station.  I had to go a bit out of my way to get a decent shout because there was initially a parking lot between me and it and all the cars and such were in the way.  The green bag is mine for most intents and purposes and one of the wonderful things about not being stuck on crutches is that I can allow a bag with wheels to take most of the weight while I pull the thing with a crutch-unencumbered hand.

This was taken on my longest walk since breaking my ankle.  It's not back to normal, but it is worlds better now (and definitely still improving.)


I spent a while debating with myself whether to have the usual Friday open thread this week since the emergency back up open thread has barely been used, what with it being less than two days old.  It's probably a sign that when an open thread is getting long in the comments we should break out an emergency back up open thread sooner than happened this time.

Anyway, I obviously did finally decide to make this thread, it would be weird if you were reading this and I hadn't.  What I figure is that the other open thread can be a place to continue the discussion of comics with all of the thorny territory that implies (bad accounting, unfair practices, racism, and Nazis, and not-really-Nazis-{but-totally-Nazis}, canceling popular series starring POC, and so forth) as well as the Dresden Files and all of the thorny territory that implies, and maybe also mixing up names and words and such, though that's a good deal less thorny.

This thread, by contrast, can be for everything else.  You know, like every other open thread.


Friday Recommendations!  What have you been reading/writing/listening to/playing/watching lately?  Shamelessly self-promote or boost the signal on something you think we should know about - the weekend’s ahead of us, so give us something new to explore!

And, like on all threads: please remember to use the "post new comment" feature rather than the "reply" feature, even when directly replying to someone else!
