redscorpion: I prefer to think of myself as "vintage' or "seasoned", not antique... Feb 21, 2019 22:37:48 GMT
christain: What antique collection? Me 'n Red??? (rofl) Feb 21, 2019 20:19:31 GMT
joseph08: Loved to see this antique collection. Feb 21, 2019 5:46:48 GMT
redscorpion: Mmmm....pot roast. With onion gravy and 'smashed taters.... heaven... Feb 21, 2019 1:42:38 GMT
christain: Talk later....big supper on the table. Oh yeah...pot-roast and all the trimmings. I'm done for... :P Feb 21, 2019 1:25:10 GMT
christain: I'm really not much of a social-gathering type of person, but I love to Ren-Fest so I can walk around in an outlandish costume (except Halloween) and not have anyone look at me funny...other than to admire. ;) 8-) Feb 21, 2019 1:21:46 GMT
redscorpion: Been doing too much work myself. I would love to take some time and attend a nerd-fest of some type, but I don't see that happening for at least the next 6 months. Feb 21, 2019 0:43:05 GMT
christain: I'll (hopefully) get back to work in time to put a little cash stash back. Having a 'seasonal' job can really suck. :-/ Very slow in the winter. Feb 20, 2019 22:58:36 GMT
nerdthenord: Probably not this year unfortunately. Who knows next year. Feb 20, 2019 22:45:01 GMT
christain: Speaking of Springtime...Any of you Texans planning on going to Scarborough Fair this year? I hope to be able to go. Costume?: As yet undecided. Armor?: Almost 100% sure thing. 8D Feb 20, 2019 20:56:40 GMT
christain: Rain and cold was intolerable yesterday. :-[ Today....I went outside with my dogs wearing just my PJ's and a bathrobe. WTF? It's a wonder people aren't keeling over from pneumonia. ??? Call me ready for Springtime. :D Feb 20, 2019 20:50:28 GMT
nerdthenord: Pretty nice day here so far. Cool but sunny. Feb 20, 2019 20:40:42 GMT
Djinnobi (Venus): It is quite warm over here in central Canada as well. Only -18C Feb 20, 2019 18:19:34 GMT
redscorpion: 11 C (53 in real measurement), but gloomy grey and drizzle rain- very English. Not so bad for this time of year. Good camping weather. Feb 20, 2019 14:25:39 GMT
christain: Not frozen seas here (yet), but plenty wet and icky cold outside. Good day to stay inside huddled up in bed with the missus, puppydawgs, a bag of popcorn, and an old movie. ;) Feb 19, 2019 20:36:40 GMT
ouroboros: Yeargh and avast ye scurvy dawgs. Let sl the mooring lines for our boat be in frozen seas ... -19 C ... Feb 19, 2019 15:32:26 GMT
nerdthenord: It was a nice week off. Alas, I must return to the grind tomorrow. Valhalla!! Feb 18, 2019 0:39:55 GMT
ouroboros: -6C east of Ottawa, winds from the west at 14kph. Nice looking morning out there. I see a good day ahead Feb 16, 2019 15:22:16 GMT
christain: I'll be SOOO glad to get back to work. Boss said maybe mid-March. I need a H/T Bastard to keep my H/T Longsword company. :D Bet your boots, I'll have a winter side-job lined up for next year! ;) Wifey doesn't like it when things get tight. Neither do I. Feb 15, 2019 23:41:58 GMT *
christain: It's about 72F. here. I may sit out by the fire-pit tonight. Spent a good part of the afternoon polishing armor. This becomes a bi-weekly thing in winter. But, with the up 'n down temps here, I can see rust forming. From cold and dry to warm and damp--yup. Feb 15, 2019 23:34:20 GMT
