OOC – When it rains…


June 15, 2019

Fun times and just life in general can be a bit of a pain in the backside.  Was playing on the potato (very old Lenovo machine) and the display died – hey, it was about eight years old and had been pancaked a few times by my rather kitty person.  I’m surprised that it lasted that long.    I did replace the display with a new AOC display, inexpensive works for me.  The next step seemed to be to go back on the gaming machine until the new display arrived (which it did).

Well, log into the gaming machine and no sound, not even a buzz.  Totally freaked out at this point and just ordered new speakers – I have a headset; however, it does seem like it just likes to annoy me more than anything.  I did like the new speakers a whole lot and decided the potato deserved some more love and got the same speakers for it.  Anyway, got the machines up and running again and I’m off to the races it seems. 

Have just started feeling like I can play a few hours in WoW without going completely blind. I have days when it’s not possible to play but it’s how it goes when you hit 70 years old officially.  Thank heavens for Kindle books because I can read a while and then switch to audio eBooks – hey, I keep my mind busy at least.

I keep myself amused with games, music and books and do most of my socializing in games because it’s too dang hot to go out and toast these old bones.

I’m starting to play a bit more and trying to get my head wrapped around my writing.  With most of my characters still not in BfA, most of them will refer to Legion era or older.  Hey, I wasn’t ready to leave Legion yet and BfA hasn’t exactly been calling my name.  Still grinding rep in Legion.

See you all in Azeroth.

Alive and Kicking


May 15, 2019

I’m still alive and kicking and trying to get myself to play a little bit more in WoW – it gets kind of lonely when most of the people in your guild have long since quit the game.  Ah well, it’s a game I know, and I can at least find my way around a bit.

My big thing right now is to settle down and try to get back into the story a bit more and just enjoys the game the way that I want too.  Hehe, I did get stupid and I was able to get the Collector’s Edition before it sold out, so, I do have to at least stay somewhat interested.  Since I have never purchased anything like this before, it’s my last hurrah, I suppose.

I know that I am going to be toddling around and getting some things done in the game now that the weather is a bit warmer and not so “dead” as it has been this winter.  Springtime in the Rockies is always a good time of year and one of my favorites even if it does drive my allergies up the wall.  Hey, you enjoy what you can at my age.

Just wanted to check in and let people know that I am alive and kicking, however, not as robustly. 

See you Azeroth.

OOC – Still Running Around Playing and having Fun


April 1st, 2019

I’m finally forcing myself to get a bit more involved in my gaming and starting to enjoy it more.  I would like to thank some of you for your words of advice in the fact that I’m not really “behind” – well, I know I’m behind but I’m enjoying what I’m doing with my alts and mains.  If there is anything that I can say about World of Warcraft is that it is time consuming which is something that I need sometimes so I don’t go completely off the rails.

I am still working my way through Legion and have rolled a couple of extra characters to get them going in BfA so I can get that going as well, might as well throw it all around so that I can get some of my monies worth out of what I have already purchased.  I don’t know that I will buy the next expansion on the pre-purchase thing again because I just haven’t gotten into it at all on BfA.  What I have seen of the stories and storylines has been entertaining, although, the actual game play seems a bit slip shod in some areas.   I’m not here to critique the game because I haven’t really played enough to the current content to give it much of a fair judgement call.

I’m literally trying my best to play a little bit more and I will admit that I have over-done it a few times and couldn’t really play much the next day.  It’s just fun to run through things on some of my lowbies and try to get my allied races going too – damn, wish we didn’t have to level them up as well, just as more salt to the wounds if you want the heritage armor.

We’re at that weird time of year where you just sort of guess at the weather because one day it is shorts weather and the next day it’s long-johns.  I am one of those people that likes to get dressed and live with it and add layers if I need too.

I have noticed that there seems to be fewer people in the game and that doesn’t surprise me with the game being as old as it is and with the changes that have been made over the last few months.  It’s rather daunting and discouraging to see the world slowly dwindling away.  I’m not going to quit just yet, I may just take a break now and then and play the way I want to play and if I get the achievements that I need to get things done – that’s awesome, if not, I’ll keep going and doing my thing.

Okay, see you all in Azeroth.

OOC – Still here


March 17, 2019

Well, I’m still having vision issues and I’m still trying to continue to play WoW anyway.  I’m so far behind everyone right now that it doesn’t really matter, however, I’m trying to enjoy the game as best as I can.  I have been working on some stories, but they will be based out of the old content where I am playing currently.ish me luck and I’ll see you all in Azeroth.

Wish me luck and I’ll see you in Azeroth.
