  1. Today
  2. I'm laughing at your description of its effect on the earth, hahaha. Oh goodness. Glad it worked out pretty okay at least! Ahhh, that sounds amazing!!
  3. Yesterday
  4. That is a lot of spiders attacking. My sister hates spiders. She won't even touch the spider swam minis I recently painted. Love to see her try to play your game when the spiders are on the march.
  5. We just finished Gugong. Most of the time it was figuring out the rules, but I was much to hospitable of a host as I was dead last. I want to play it again before I forget it. Maybe I'll try a solo game tomorrow.
  6. That sucks. I had water in my basement once when we had a monsoon, and it knocked out my power. I now have a backup sump pump and a generator waiting patiently in my garage. Note: kitty litter helps absorb humidity.
  7. Ooooh, Meadery. I didn't know that was a word.
  8. Getting excited for PaizoCon this coming weekend. Got into 2 lottery games and some fun seminars. Really looking forward to the Viking Meadery which is walking distance from the hotel :).
  9. No boardgames were there The water is almost gone, clean it and dry it after.
  10. A few ago, thinking about to make some cleaning in my basement before some problems with my sump pomp (broken, long electric shutdown)... so the floating ball has a bad idea to leave the pomp this week end. Murphy's law again looking better.
  11. GENCON EVENT QUEUE DAY! Gencon announces their calendar in advance, and then uses a wishlist system to build out your calendar for the 4 1/2 days. Then you log in at the appointed time (i.e. today at noon) and click a button to submit your wishlist to the Gencon supercomputer for cranking. Of course, everyone is doing the same thing and the whole system pauses and shudders when the clock ticks over. When you click, you can almost feel the power grid browning down and the earth's rotation stuttering a bit. Anyway, the last two years have been unkind to us in the queue. This year I got marginally better at about 8200ish (vs. I think maybe 14,000+ last year? I'd have to go look). Mrs. Zoxe initially didn't get a number at all, but finally took a risk, refreshed the page, and found that she was 1,000 lower than me. When the dust settled, we didn't get into our painting classes (booo!) but I had plenty of other events to choose from. #1 on my list was Dropfleet's Narrative Battle, and I got into that. Mrs. Zoxe got into some writing events and a crochet class (crochet a dice bag! hah!). But we have things we can do and are not scrambling back through the catalog to make use of our time. #nerdstress
  12. Just to follow this up, I'm not healed up yet and I'm kind of sighing about it. After that first night, the swelling went down and by the first weekend I was feeling pretty good. In fact, that first Saturday was my Dropfleet tournament, and I was pretty much on my feet from 10:30 am to almost 10 pm getting through the 3 games. It was tender, but nothing really bad going on. Monday and Tuesday I was fine, but stayed off of it as much as possible. Last Wednesday (a week after the incident), it started swelling up again and was looking really gnarly (orange and green and purple). I had a knot the size of an uncracked walnut come up, and the area around it was puffy. Blood clots run in my family, and they get scary quickly. More back and forth with the nurse brother on Thursday, and Friday morning I did a walk-in to my doc's office. I truly expected the doc to send me off for an ultrasound, but he poked and prodded and shrugged. It's in a low risk area away from the veins, it's not showing signs of a clot, and "it looks like you just took a good wollop." He set me up with some kinestetic tape, which gave instant relief, and I'm taking it (mostly) easy this weekend. I'm frustrated because the weather finally turned, and I'm on the couch with my foot up. Sitting at the paint bench isn't so great either, but I'm hopeful that I can get some assembly done today.
  13. The storm is curling around to be north north west now.
  14. I would have been happy not to be right about something like that. I'm still holding off on my annuals, although I did replace a hydrangea today.
  15. Last week
  16. @tgpumpkin: Brother, I think you need this... https://www.plowhearth.com/en/Halloween-Decorations/Headless-Halloween-Pumpkin-Holder-Figure/p/65F98
  17. It rained the last three days and then was windy. The irrigation pond on our property flooded into our and neighbor's pastures. The wind knocked down the fence and we gained 2 cows. Lucky it wasn't an outside fence. We closed our gate so they won't escape.
  18. My awesome custom box that houses the spot lights for my jewelry and craft business. At the Art Festival. The window washes out how pretty the stain is.
  19. Friday, I got an email from John and Linda asking me if I wanted to sneak in a pontoon ride on their new pontoon before the weather turned. Uh, YEAH! It looks like a floating cocktail lounge. 73 degrees and sunny. Music playing through the speakers. Wine/cheese/crackers/grapes while floating in the middle of the lake with a gentle breeze. Several pairs of Canadian Geese with their new really ugly baby honkers paddling beside them nearby. Then a quick spin around half the lake, and then steaks and baked potatoes on the grill. A nice and relaxing afternoon/evening before the weather turns ugly for a week. Note: everyone should have a good friend with a pontoon.
  20. @Adam was right. I dug up most of my annuals and stuck them in pots. smh 🤬 On the bright side, some neighbors stopped in to say hi before the big storms hit. The way she was waddling, I think she's in the family way.
  21. Guess what's lumbering north by north east? Looks to get here around an hour after games start. I must be getting old. I'm blowing off games tonight.
  22. We are definitely related, brother. I thought the same thing.
  23. Whoa I’m not used to @Konas popping up here on the weekends. It scared me for a minute thinking today was still a weekday and I got confused and stayed home 😛
