  4. Well, today is my 13th anniversary.  I am surprised we made it this long.  I must be a saint.

      It is also my 13th anniversary. Does this make me a saint too?

      @fdurso224, that's Mrs. Atari1 to you buddy!

       

      @HatefulGravey I don't know you well enough to come to a conclusion about that, but if your relationship is anywhere a tumultuous as ours, then yes.

    3. HatefulGravey

      HatefulGravey

      I have to admit my relationship comes very easy to me. If anything my wife is the saint, she has me spoiled rotten as can be.

  5. I want to buy a claw machine and put all of my kids stuffed toys in it.  It will keep all the stuffed toys contained and the kids get a lesson in capitalism.

      If they're older than about 10 or so, you can build one from scratch with them with an Arduino board. They'd learn a lot -- basic carpentry, painting, basic Arduino coding, wiring, etc.. Capitalism is easier to survive in if one is armed with such skills.

      I have many skills.  My soon to be 11 year old is very interested in my mechanical and carpentry skills.  I recently bought her a few electric and science experiment kits (think Heathkit) and she is really into them.

      @GoldLeader Seems the act of taking things out IS the play. Family dog does the same thing, once everything is out it moves on to something else.

      I've been thinking of him. It's good he's doing alright.

  9. Just had surf and turf for lunch.  Burger King Big Fish sandwich and Bacon King sandwich.  I am VERY full right now.

      When BK first launched in my (Canadian) city in the late-1970s, the fish sandwich was called the "Whaler". A friend of the family utterly loved them; me, not so much. Personally, I miss the Big King.

      @Rick Dangerous but my name is Joe.🤮

       

      @Rogerpoco it's not a bad sandwich.  It has a couple pickle slices, some lettuce and sauce.  I put cheese on mine and it was good.  I would rather have fish from Bonefish Grille, but then again who wouldn't.

  10. It's gone. Finally. My trash service is supposed to pick up bulky and large items during the first week of the month. This month they left a bed out there for two weeks before picking up. I only needed to email once and call twice. How convenient!

    1. GoldLeader

      20 times better than a cable provider it sounds like ;)

      Should have a price sign in front of the bulky items, it'll be stolen.  Much quicker to get rid off. ;)

  11. What's white, nine inches long, wet and sticky?  Click to find out!

      That reminds me of a joke my kiddos used to like to tell me when they were little.

       

      What's brown and sticky?  A stick!  

       

      Never fails to make me smile thinking about it.

      I now have a hankering to drink some Iron City Beer while listening to Iron Maiden while Ironing my work shirts.

      You have to be from PA!   I remember Iron City Beer!  (Drank some on tour in Pittsburgh!)...  and I have a punk CD compilation called Iron City Punk that I think is the same logo.

  14. Wife update:  She is home from the hospital and resting comfortably.  After many tests and much pain the doctor diagnosed her with a pulled muscle in her ribs.  Hopefully she will be better in a week or so.

  15. Wife is in the hospital with abdominal pains just below her ribs.  All tests came back ok so far.  She's being kept at least overnight for observation and additional tests in the morning.  Hope it's nothing major.

      digdugnate

      @GoldLeader either!  That is one of the funniest Family Guy bits- my wife and I quote it ALLL the time.  It's much better than the 'Meg' story in that episode. ;)

      As an experiment, put a pile of sugar to the left and a warm moist turd to the right. You'll see that the flies will go straight for the turd.
