    That depends on if the references you're checking out happen to be xxx, in which case, be careful although the A/C will be very helpful:thumbsup:

    You'll be fine as long as you work on your "fingering" technique, just dont place your finger over the nozzleo_O

    After going on my rant on this thead I realized I was being lazy sitting on the computer not getting things done, I shut it down and did a good 3 hour airbrush session, so thanks to the forum for the motivation, if I was smart I'd get to my warehouse at 6 in the morning to beat the heat, don't mind sweating but the white tip dry was a tough one.

    I get up early to get to work by 6am, 45 min drive etc..so I’m up at 4:30am, I work normally 10-12 hour days and guess what I do all day...I paint..like big paint big boring paint. When I get home I play with the dogs a bit, eat dinner and try my best to get in an hour or so before going to bed and doing it all over again. Don’t even count chores, cutting the lawn, socializing with the wife etc. I feel like my days are getting shorter and free time even shorter. I live for the weekends for any time to myself.

    So yea, work and life sucks. Work sucks more! Lol

    When I retired I thought " what am I going to do now ". Now I don't know how I had time to work with what I get into all day. I know how you feel because work takes up so much time in the day. In my last years working, I worked out of town and was gone Monday thru Thursday night. So I really felt like I was working 24 hours a day since there was no life while at the job except work.

    First one to win the lottery buys a plane and a pilot ! tour the world and pick us all up and take us to an island somewhere, we can have our own airbrush retreat. If Dru asks nicely we may even pick him up on the way through lol

    lol... in NZ "Swedish backpackers" has a sad connotation, one of our nastiest murders were of Swedish backpackers... but if they are carrying our gear then that is useful... :)
