misc: community laundry, big antler

Did laundry the other day in seaside.  Looks like the laundromat donates services after hours 1x/month – very cool:

I was in a thrift shop and saw a big single scimitar-shaped antler, about 2’ long.  Looked like a deer antler only with no branches on it.  Young elk antler?  It was $15 (would have preferred $10), but still a lot cheaper than retail for a piece that size.

I bought it and cut it into 4x 6” pcs with the jigsaw.   The 400w inverter didn’t like a fast pull to start the motor going, so I had to ease into it.

Muffin is enjoying one of the pieces in the parking lot of the Seaside welcome center:
