occasionally possible to find good stuff in the girls' section of carters that isn't MY DADDY SAYS I'M THE QUEEN OF PRINCESSES XOXOXO

@Pixley @neoncoughh is this a Wisconsin thing? It is definitely a New England thing

Cars are so pleasing as objects when they're good, but I have such conflicted feelings about them.

We have one car (an EV) and I really would like to just never use fossil fuels ever again, but there's a whole world of vintage vehicles that have so much more character and integrity as machines than the newest EVs.

@giromide followers-only, local-only will mean only your followers who are also members of this instance can see it. Unlisted, local-only means only members of this instance who either visit your timeline, see another member boost it, or follow you will see it.

@giromide sorry, redrafted for clarity. If you want the toot to appear in the local, even for people who don’t follow you, use public-local-only.

first she/her dad on today 😎😎😎

nonwhite, non-cishet dads (boost to find dads) 

@sydney think of all the good punches you could do with that lead arm though

My kit was due for new heads. Actually overdue. Actually embarrassingly overdue. I had my second drum lesson in many years today and part of exercising the muscle is taking better care of the tools, I think

Show more is a Mastodon instance for dads, running the Hometown fork of Mastodon.
