    Interesting saga, possibly the most staccato delivery / narration I’ve heard anywhere, too.

    Thanks! This is a true gift for me, as I have two Dartmoor ponies who won’t even let their bodies be touched, let alone back feet, and this surely looks like a key part of getting the farrier access for hoof trimming. (And, yes, I know that there is a substantial part of equine between the withers and the hind feet. Should keep life interesting…..)

    Heartbreaking. Trapped and desperate.

    Legs are a bit long…..

    ‘Wow!’ Doesn’t come close.
    I suddenly envisioned skeletonising corpses with their VR headsets on, controls slipped from dead hands, ….
    Stunning and also scary.
    When can I have one?

    Yikes!

    Opening image of the car made me think Carcharodon carcharias, the Great White Shark – looked same shape, grey, and just as scary.

    Spooky.

    The first,’ festina lente’, translates as ‘make haste slowly’. The second, ‘solvitur ambulando’, as ‘it is solved by walking’. Over the years, I’ve found both admonitions useful – especially when juggling too many chainsaws.

    And, dear jzdro, I admire your upfrontness (upfrontitude?) abot the workbook. I’ll see what comments it gets on amazon, right after I’ve actually read the preface and introductory material in the main text. Yes, I know I said I’d do that this weekend. It’s still Sunday….

    Festina lente, et solvitur ambulando.
    And jzdro, do you find the Wheelock workbook useful, worth ordering?

    • Hastening slowly?

    • I don’t know, because I have done no work! When I have done some work, I’ll pipe up.

    My copy of Wheelock arrived in yesterday’s post. I’m more than slightly overwhelmed. Turns out there are several additions in the Wheelock series, including a workbook. TGIF, I can shortly pour a glass of veritas juice, relax, and read the preface/introduction.

    Rats! How about theratburger.com?

    Yes, I was there back then, and commissioned to do the Ratburger logo line art. Although that particular image is unavailable now (probably in a store-all somewhere), Chef has fond memories of it and I’m tasked with reproducing it as best I can. Live in fear!
