    Good morning Uhall. Well, morning for me. Everyone help yourselves to your favorite ABM items. Coffee, Dr Pepper, beer... whatever. *winks*

    I just seems like a good day for open discussion. Lots of changes here at Stratics. Could make for exciting times.

    Classic is still out there, simmering on a back burner.

    Siege is in the freezer...

    Not sure what the bard thing is all about.

    Conner aced his mid terms. Congrats by the way.

    Discuss any of this, or anything or nothing at all. Sometimes it is good just to celebrate us. The players.

    Thanks :thumbup1:. It felt good seeing those grades after being out of school for a quarter of a century....

    *chuckles* My ex just graduated. She went back to college after 20 years. She started with a 1.9 GPA. She stills blames that on me, but hey... it was the 80's. She has been accepted into the masters program. She is self debating that... More school or a job.

    good morning Kelmo :) and congratulations Connor!

    still getting the sleep off my face, so coffee, please, heavy cream and sugar..... my sister says anything but black is like drinking coffee syrup, but I gotta have mine sweet and creamy

    not sure about garden work here today, was supposed to clear up but the skies are all grey and I'm wondering if all the spring rains we didn't get are planning on hanging around all summer :(
     
  5. Heh, I tried the college thing in the 80's too.

    All I can say about it is that the 80's were not conducive to good studies. We were lucky to still know our own names each morning, much less getting good grades. :D

    Morning, Kelmo :)
    Funny how the ex-s linger around sometimes, he he. I had a lot of fun with my ex-hubby on Sunday, ain't that extraordinary?

    My ex wife is my best friend. Odd to some, I suppose. We have always been good as friends. That next level just never worked. We did have three wonderful children though. My twin girls just turned 21 a couple of days ago... *feels a bit old*

    That's sort of cool, except for the failed marriage in the middle.
    What I really don't get is people, who once had something nice going between them, making each other's life hell when they separate and divorce... but that's me and this conversation probably doesn't belong on UHall anyway.

    Good Morning !

    *grabs a Dt. Pepsi and some grapes*

    I remember the ABM with CaesarDoP and oft read those threads, with my morning coffee.

    Stratics sort of remains my ....peculiar morning *newspaper* though.

    Husband went on a fishing weekend with some friends of his this weekend, kinda pacing awaiting his return today, weirdly miss him if he is gone for a couple 3 days. :)

    From the sounds of his phone call last night though, I will only find one trout to slap in our freezer. Guess all this rain has bothered the fishing down here, or this heat ie the fish may only be found swimming down deeper beyond hook line and sinker levels.

    Today feels like it's going to be a weird day, I can't figure out why yet.

    Good morning, all and thanks for warming up the ABM, Kelmo. I'll have a venti cappucino, please.

    I'm still chuckling to myself over the squirt gun fight we had in the backyard yesterday evening with the grandkids. Finally had a fairly warm evening without a lot of wind. Good fun.

    Morning All! *grabs a cup-o-java and a bagel*

    The weekend was way too short, but we got a lot done around the house. The garden is ready for the holiday weekend coming up (here in the states at least) and got to grill out yesterday, again in preparation for thins coming weekend.

    I have to agree Black Sun... something is slightly off today, but I can't put my finger on it...

    Everyone enjoy your morning/afternoon/evening!

    Hey Cetric... Sometimes we just like to let our hair down and be ourselves. Uhall can be pretty intense and formal at times. Rules on shard forums are a little more relaxed... Though the magic of the recuring ABM thread, we get that moment to relax the rules and go a little off topic here.

    I'm off for a two week hike north through the Highlands starting tomorrow. Hoping to work towards gm'ing inscription and meditation along the way.
    I love the sense of freedom you get with a tent and rucksack strapped to your back.

    ah... gotcha


    one question, if shard forum rules are much more relaxed...why did great lakes have to go make its own because of overmoderating?

    unless im mistaken and the rules have become "more" relaxed.


    Anyway, have fun in ur cool thread. Have a bud light on me.

    i envy you so much right now =(
     
  25. WOW... now THAT sounds like fun! I used to backpack into the Smokey Mountains and once in a while the Rockys. "When I wore a younger man's clothes," so the great Bard used to sing.
