I decided to burn some vacation time while the weather is still nice. I'm on my last day of 5 days off. Back to the grind tomorrow.

Oh, the lofty plans I had last week - take everything out of the garage and organize it, go to my mom's and clean her gutters, fix the handle on the snowblower, dig into BSD and replace a leaky cap, maybe spend a few more hours on the Evel Knievel pf swap, wax the truck, pull TSPP out of the game room and loan it to a buddy, spend a day with the old man...

I spent the day with my dad yesterday, and will at least visit mom today, if not clean the gutters. The rest fell to the wayside.

Quoted from pinzrfun:

Confess I have never had any vacation time.

My boss is a asshole. (I am self employed).

Confess I just love to work, so much that while I do love football also, so far I am only watching the night games, and working 7 days a week during daylight hours.

BUT, that does not mean I am up at 5am, or even 7am, (or even 9am), but I am getting up when I decide to get up, and getting plenty of work done 7 days a week.

And yeah, 30 years ago when I was younger, I could get the work done in 4 days, that takes me 7 days now, and I was drinking 3 times the amount of beer back then that I drink now.

If I was still drinking the amount of beer I did 30 years ago, I could not get any work done now.

Anyway, I did the math, and I can retire at age 62, for 11 months.

I confess it drives me nuts how slow my girlfriend walks.

It hurts my knees and back to even try to walk that slow.

I have no clue why she does that, but one clap of thunder and she can walk faster just fine.

Anyway, when I get ahead of her, she yells "hey, remember me", and my reply now is "I thought I heard it thunder and I thought you were ready to walk faster".

So anyway, we were at the beach recently, and when we were leaving there was this hot girl, 30 years younger than me, wearing one of those string things that I have never seen up close, and I confess I was walking pretty fast to get a closer look.

I figured I would get yelled at, but instead she just said "do you wish I was in shape like that, that I could wear one of those string things like that girl".

CONFESS I WAS ON MY A GAME!

I said "what girl, there was a bee after me".

How is that even physically possible?

#4555 2 days ago

I confess I always thought I was pretty smart, until this girlfriend.

Normally I can answer about any general question, but the questions she asks give me a headache.

Anyway, I have finally figured out that I am fine, and she is nuts.

The easiest thing to do when she asks a question is just to say "I do not know".

And I say that around 20 times a day to her.

BUT! If I am feeling cocky and ready to argue, I will call out her goofy questions that make no sense.

Most of her questions, are worded in a way, that seems smart, but once I had enough headaches from all of that, I seen the pattern.

She is easily confused, and mixes things up, so many of her questions have no possible answer, because it is all mixed up in the first place.

And if I try to correct her question in the first place, to try and find out what she is trying to figure out, then I am accused of just always wanting to argue with her.

Anyway, I am stupid now, and I just say I do not know when she asks a question.

Makes my life easier.

Confess I wish I could post a example here, but so off the wall and crazy I could not remember her wording anyway.

The last one was something about Manatees, and do they have flippers, and do they live in the artic, and do they have blow holes like whales, while also making noises like dolphins.

(confess I could not make stuff up like that if I tried, she is good).

Also, so funny how her voice changes.

Around me her voice is normal, I am used to it.

Get her around some other people and all of a sudden she has like a English accent, and all proper and stuff.

When that proper stuff happens, I am like who is that?

But she is awesome, and I hope to be with her the rest of my life.

(as long as I die in the next couple of years).

(and confess, even if she reads this, she will not remember how much I like to joke around, but instead give me hell).

Confess I can fix any of that with ok, you win, next time we will go to the beach for 2 days.

And I used to love the beach when I was younger, now except for the occasional string garments that some ladies wear that I would like to take a closer look at, the beach bores me, I would rather go fishing.

Quoted from swampfire:

I was the superman of beer drinking back then.

Always 30 a day, with 45 being the most in a day, I have no clue how I did it, and I confess I am glad that I only need 10-12 now and I am all good.

Anyway, one last confessional, and I may be good for a long time.

(until someone else posts something that reminds me of something).

Ok, 90% of everyone here I think knows how some of what I post is serious, and mostly trying to be funny also.

And we all know I sometimes make very long posts.

So I confess, for a while when I made a post, just to be funny I would do a quick edit, and say the post was too long so I deleted 5000 words.

That was meant to be funny.

Then I got called out about the 5000 words I must have deleted from the Red Lobster sickness.

I confess I just started to say the part about the deleted words were meant to be funny, but you know what, that crap about killed me so I can go ahead and type a whole lot more about that.

Everything here I post is true, but I confess I do twist some things just a tad, to try to be funny.

I have met a lot of members here, but so far the only member here that has been around for beer together is Jay, and we text and PM a good bit.

Last night after the Monday Night football game I wanted to make a post in the NFL topic, but my internet was out.

So I texted Jay a book.

(confess I am about to pm Jay now).

It is crazy how much I used to drink, and by most standards I still have too much, but getting better.

And recently I thought I did not have anything to say here for a while, and all of a sudden I was on a roll and having fun posting here tonight.

(and while this may not be funny, hopefully the edit will be).

While ago I was telling my girlfriend that I worked outside all day, today.

She said "but, it rained all day".

I said "I know, and it felt great".

If it was not raining I would be soaking wet with sweat anyway, and the cool wet from the rain felt a whole lot better.

I am sure she will do her outdoor work when the sun is out and it is nice outside, and she will gripe later about how much she sweated.

Confess back when I was a little kid I never let a rainy day get me down if I wanted to be outdoors, I would just put swimming trunks on and enjoy being out in the rain.

Confess I am still like that now.

And I confess I was never into any Godzilla movies or any of that stuff, and I have no intention of ever owning a Godzilla pin, but I am glad they are being made.

Through the years I seen plenty of posts here from members saying they want a Godzilla pin.

And I am not interested, but I hope Evil Dead and Scooby Doo also gets made by some company, I have seen a whole lot of posts about wanting those games.

If a game turns out to be very awesome, I may would sell something to get another game.

But I confess that I have broken the addiction, and I will never have games all over the house.

And lately I have not played anything, I have been too tired and sore from working, but my girlfriend has still been playing the Big Buck Hunter arcade a lot.

#4558 1 day ago

I get caught standing out in the rain often. My snakes like it and so do I, so long as it's not cold rain.

#4559 1 day ago

New computer is up and running. Old one going to storage for emergency stand by use.

The old tower was started over a decade ago. Was going to be used for streaming events. Unfortunately my tower before that fell to expanding capacitors and the next tower got finished up and pressed into service quicker.

Over the last months the old tower was starting to drive me nuts with various, random issues. That none of my computer friends had seen before. And not wanting to take a chance on losing some things. I thought get the next one going.

Finished it up tonight with Jackson's help.

And yeah, it is raining.

Several years ago I had a nice looking metal roof put on my house, so that I would never have to mess with roof stuff again.

All was good for a few years.

Then some leaks around the fireplace chimney, and a bathroom vent pipe.

Paid some people to fix the stuff, lasted a while, fixed the stuff myself, lasted a while, and now leaking again.

The last person I wanted to fix the leaks wanted 2 grand, said the roof was done wrong in the first place.

I call bull crap!

If it was done wrong in the first place, why did it take 7 years to finally start leaking?

Anyway, I confess, none of the leaks are anywhere near any games, or I would be paying the 2 grand real fast.

I just have a beer cooler that I take on road trips catching the leak in the basement, and some kitchen pans catching the leak at the chimney upstairs.

And when it stops raining I will go on the roof again, and try again to fix the leaks.

In the meantime no way are the leaks bad enough to rot wood and cause more damage in my lifetime.

And I confess, I hope no members on here work for any insurance companies, and if someday my house gets wiped out from a tornado or something, my claim is denied because I had roof leaks in the first place.

(and I just stay so damn busy that even though they keep calling me to remind me about my car warranty, I also keep on forgetting to take care of that).

(and I have no vacations planned anytime soon, so if I am not here it would be because A: I tried to drink like Superman again, or B: seems I have legal matters I need to tend to, and if I do not send 5 grand of gift cards to some law enforcement I have never heard of, I am going to jail).

And I just cracked open another can of beer, so have to type more, and just say I have got enough junk mail, wanting to buy my house, or my rental houses, that I can burn all of that in the fireplace this winter and have FREE HEAT! So Thanks!

My girlfriend did call one of those junk mails for a house that she needed to get rid of.

It was so funny, they send out all of this junk mail, and they have no clue what to do if anyone actually calls them.

She ended up just dealing with a real, real estate agent to get rid of that place.

And all of this stuff was funny for a while, but just old and not even funny now.

I am all for anyone trying to make a decent living, but if the best you can do is car warranty stuff, sending junk mail to buy houses when you actually have no money to buy a house, or you want to start a scam and you demand payment in gift cards so that your victim does not go to jail as you claim they will, you really need to get a real life, and stop bugging the rest of us, it is getting very old.

And I confess, if any of that crap I just posted actually worked for you, and you have pinball machines now, and you are active here now, well, please let us know!

So far I have never downvoted the first post, but if I knew that poster was the one that made any money off car warranty crap or any of that crap, I would downvote any post they ever made.

LEAVE US ALONE!

If we actually want a car warranty we will go visit our car dealer, and not mess with you in the first place!

(and my girlfriend knows first hand, just because they send a card in the mail that says they have cash and want to buy your house, they do not have cash, and they have no clue what they are doing, or they could have just bought a house anyway).

(almost like they want to brag to friends that they are self employed buying houses, and in this case, that person lived in a apartment, and had never even purchased the first house in their lifetime).

Confess I wish I was just making this stuff up, but no, this is all real, and very funny.

I hope all of you have a awesome week!

I confess I had some of those same issues around 30 years ago, and then I stopped clicking on porn sites, and forever now my computers have been ok.

(and if you was not doing that anyway, you need to change your passwords, maybe Prada was looking at some stuff while you was sleeping).

You just never know anymore, the world we live in is just crazy.

Hell, just 5 years ago I never would have guessed that I would have 15 phone calls a week about my car warranty now.

GET a tub or two of "Through the roof" - unreal for leaks.

One of my local pinball joints an hour or so away got a new Mando LE table over the summer, so interested to see how it played, I put a half dozen games into it. I got a multiball all six times, and being perfectly honest, I don't feel like I earned them...

#4566 22 hours ago

Totally forgot that i placed a bid on a machine last week in an auction 160 miles away, and won it an hour ago. Don't want the game anymore since I put a deposit on Godzilla 3 hours ago.

Now I'm intrigued.
160 miles west of you would be just about here.
Is it this way, what game at what price?

It’s pretty easy to get multi ball, the trick is to start a mission, then get multi ball going and then hold the action button to light 8 shots on fire with the flamethrower.

My wife has been on me to install a Ring doorbell system. I finally did today, and text her to make sure it’s working. I sent her a cock shot at work. It works.

No. South, in Ohio.

Quoted from Jaybird815:

I didn't know you raised chickens.

A lot of people around here try to raise chickens, and that is against "county code", so the early morning loud noises do not last long.

It makes no sense to me, best I can tell eggs and chicken is pretty cheap at the grocery store, while chicken feed is pretty high at the livestock feed store, so seems like a lot of trouble to not really save any money.

Which also reminds me of my uncle that likes to grow tomatoes. He spends a lot of money on miracle grow, and a lot of time watering the plants, and last I noticed tomatoes are pretty cheap at the store without all the work.

Hell, he probably spends more money on miracle grow than what he would just buying tomatoes as needed in the first place.

Confess I would love to get some tobacco seed though, cigs are not cheap at the store.

Garden vegetables generally taste better. Plus some people just enjoy doing the gardening regardless if there is much of a difference or not.

Corn in the cob? Oh, definitely so much better than store bought.

The downside is that the squirrels go after it here. Though, what is frustrating is that if the squirrels manage to get the corn, they will just have like 3 bites out of each ear and that's it. They don't even eat the whole thing. 3 bites and onto the next ear. It's like they destroy the crop out of spite or something.

Especially if you grow the kind you like. Get your water boiling. Grab a ear of corn off the stock and cook immediately.

I had that problem too. One year I put in a row of Indian corn to use for decorating. The squirrels went nuts for it and left the other corn alone. Worked every year until I stopped gardening.
