      I hadn't even noticed.

  4. Check out my  photo and banner.  Not so glitzy, but I got it right, I think.


    1. Jdonley75


      It looks awesome.  Good job.  :)

      Thanks.  Took a while.

  6. Yesterday
  7.  im probably in the best mental state of my life for at least the last 5 years. I am so happy an excited for the future. I havent been this excited for life as a whole for a long long time. Im so so so happy with whats happening. I honestly feared adult life when i was younger but now im thinking was school a big part of what was bringing me down? I think my clear answer is a big yes sadly. I say sadly because you shouldn't be put down by education but you should be excited to learn new things (which i always am) but school took away that joy from me for the most part.

      Sorry for the vent lol

    2. Sweetlion


      Why sorry? Thanks for sharing, and I'm glad you are feeling better about yourself, and about life.

    I've done some of the Sydney CJ tour and I think about you at each stop

    That's from an American currently in Australia. To say I'm stoked my little story sticks with people is an understatement.

  10. Hey Guys... It has been ages...

    I have picked up reading a few stories in here this week, and I'm happy I did, everyone is delivering such good stories and I have a hard time letting go once I get started.

    I would love to post something on my own, but UNI is a bitch. All the academic texts are killing my muse. I'm fiddling with a few ideers here and there, but when I finally have time to sit down and plop it all onto 'paper' (pc) there's nothing... or the ideers turn out to be crap...

    I am hoping once summer vacation comes, I might get something jitted down for me to share with you guys.


    Thank you for sharing you love 🥰 and inspiration through your stories

  11. I just finished watching an interesting NCIS episode tonight. My British friends would tell me I’m behaving like an OAP. The ads shown during the show seem to agree with lots of pharmaceutical products being pushed.

    Unusually, the main actors played different characters in flashback scenes illustrating the case they are working on in the present. Bishop and Torres have a very flirty relationship even while they deny any romantic feelings for each other. In the flashbacks, the two portray star-crossed lovers.

    I enjoyed seeing the actors in different roles tonight…

      Climax’s Precious and Few was the perfect theme for the episode.

      Well then OAP fits me. I do collect my pension ( a tad early, i am 60) and since i tore my hamstring i am definitely feeling old!

    4. droughtquake


      Join the club. I’m also 60. My Aunt once referred to me being retired, but Disability isn’t really retirement.

  12. Belated Happy GAnniversary!

      Thanks, Dave! 😄

      It has been great getting to know folks here.

      You have contributed so much in your first year.  I'm looking forward to see what you contribute during your sophomore year!

  13. Really wish doctors would be on the same wavelength! Went to another new doctor, and come to.find out my vitamin D levels (which my other doc said was good at 35) should be double that when considering our short summers and high altitude.  He said it's no wonder I still ache all the time. Would have been nice to know over a year ago!

  14. Last week
  15. Thanks for reading my Cardmaker story, even if it's unfinished. I hope the other stories in the series will amuse you too.

      My mom gave me some apricot flavored tea once. It was really good. At home I have a box of Green Tea, and English Breakfast Tea that I make a cup from time to time. Also a box of Celestial Seasoning's Sleepytime Tea, for when I'm needing a warm beverage to help me sleep.

      @MichaelS36 Overheating the water or letting the leaves steep too long can make the tea taste bitter. Different teas require different times and temperatures to maximize the flavor.   :yes:


    4. MichaelS36


      @Page Scrawler thank you. However, where I come from originally, black tea, must be steeped 5 minutes, using boiling water in a teapot, not a cup/mug.  It is how I've had tea prepared since I began to drink it as a child. 

  17. Happy GA-versary, Wayne. I’m really glad you joined GA. :)

      @MichaelS36 and @Mikiesboy, apparently it has really been a year. It doesn't seem like it, but here we are.

      Thanks for being my friends here. It's nice. I appreciate you guys.

      I had a BLT recently. Well, more precisely, it was bacon, shaved  Brussels sprouts, and roasted beets. So, technically, a BBB.   :gikkle:

      Tonight, I think I'll be making Croque Monsieur.  :yes:

      What sort of monster are you?!?!

  20. A sad day as we buried my wife's only sibling, her sister who died late last Monday.  She is in a better place.  Her sister suffered from Alzheimers for the last several years and it got progressively worse.

      Thanks, molly!

      It has been great fun getting to know the site and the folks here.

      Here's to many more! 🙂

  22. I don't mean to toot my own horn or anything, but when I mash words together that completely destroy the concept of english, grammar and phonetics and pretend it's a sentence... oh boy it just takes my breath away.

  23. Three more pieces from Bennett Cerf’s book Good for a Laugh. These show how even in the deep-freeze of a Cold War, a person can always stay warm with a little humor.  


    Stalin called in his top “yes-men” one morning and boomed, “Boys, I’ve got a great idea! Let’s liberate the Pribilof Islands from the suffocating grip of those money-mad Wall Street bankers.” One yes-man was a little slow with his usual enthusiasm. “I feel I should point out,” he quavered, “that there isn’t a single person on the Pribilof Islands – nothing there but seals.” “They can clap, can’t they?” inquired Joe with a sideways smirk.” “Why, yes. All seals can clap.” “Good. Then after we get done liberating them, no one will be able to tell them apart from the Politburo!”


    Commissar Malipoofsky journeyed from Moscow to Budapest to see whether the Hungarian state was growing enough potatoes to meet the Russian-imposed quota. “Ah, Comrade,” gloated his Hungarian deputy, “under the inspiration of the glorious Slavic Motherland, our peasants are digging up a crop beyond our wildest dreams. Our spuds will be sufficient to pile up a mighty mountain reaching to the feet of God.” “Enough of your corny dramatics,” said Commissar Malipoofsky, “you know there isn’t any God.” “Yes, and you know there aren’t any potatoes either.”


    An Irishman was listening to the latest news spread by his mates at the local pub. Later that night, he remarked to his wife, “Seems they’re sayin’ it’s really Khrushchev who’s clapped down on the Korea.” “Well,” said the missus, “two for one! And may God bless the lassie who gave ‘em to him.”

      These are great, AC!   Thank you.

      The first and the second nearly send me on the floor with laughing. :rofl:

  24. Some of you may notice I tweaked the title to I & C in Premium. That's strictly due to the final published version being on Amazon Kindle Unlimited and they need exclusivity. It's not really the same book, so hopefully, this will appease them.

      Not sure if it was necessary, but I believe in hedging my bets. Approved! :D 

  25. After being maliciously attacked by a nap earlier this afternoon, I can happily report that the first draft of chapter 41 is complete.  Tomorrow I get to start revising and editing chapter 37.  I'm expecting things to start posting by Wednesday.

    1. MCVT


      Ha!  Malicious attack by a nap.  Naps are sneaky like that.

      I fell backwards, actually.  But that's pretty accurate as to how it went down.

  26. Okay. I apologize. I'm a bit behind in keeping up with the changes happening on the site. I finally posted the prompts in the Writer's Circle Prompts. If you were looking to link your stories, well, I'm sorry I was slow. Been doing a lot off my phone, but it is a hundred times easier on my tablet. Again my apologies but everything is set up again for you.
