Good morning everyone
Happy Friday
I am late this morning because I slept till 7 then kept getting "timed out" and "connection issue" when I tried to get into C-D
So I though hmmmm I can go ahead and get everything all researched and type it on a email so that when my computer "cooperates" I will have everything ready to go

When I saw it was "video game day" I got to thinking, were you maybe a "pong-er" way back when or has your solitaire gone from cards to online.
Were you on a first name basis with pac man or sonic or do you have a mysterious character that you take in to battle in one of those online "fantasy" games
I just knew this had to become the subject for

Today's Question:

Have you ever played a video or computer game(s)

Bonus Question:

Have you every gotten so involved while playing that you forgot to do something?

Extra Credit Question :

Have the words "I am going to throw that thing out" every been uttered in your presence ?

Happy B-Day to Charlie!!!!!! YESSS!!!!!!! I'm going to have a humoungous chocolate milk shake in honor of! OOPS! I can at least answer one of the questions anyway. Not a video guy but have played a video game or two with my friend who lives near Albuquerque. He continuously has to teach me how all that stuff works. I'm stuck in the 19th century-I'm an album and 45 guy but I can turn albums and 45's over on my turntable and not scratch the vinyl! WooHoo!!!!! Everybody have a WooHoo weekend!!

Yes, I have and do. I go to the games and trivia forum here all the time.
I remember playing Zelda all the time with my son and I never did conquer that game.

Have you every gotten so involved while playing that you forgot to do something?
I have and what's awful is forgetting an appointment ......... but I do it more when I'm on Citi-Data... especially when I'm preparing dinner.. have burnt a few things..

Have the words "I am going to throw that thing out" every been uttered in your presence ? LOL... and the dare thing still manages to hang around.

Would you believe I'm not a real chocolate shake, milk anything chocolate drinker!!!

National Policewoman Day:
This is cool! I don't know how these women do it! I truly respect them for their courage....





..........CHARLEY!!

Here Here and Cheers to our Birthday Friend.

Yes I played video games, Loved Sonic the hedghog and my kids whooped me every time.

I play match 3 games and hidden object games on PC almost everyday.

Yes I reach a point that I do not want to have to tear myself off of the puter, but my (4 legged furry daughter) Moli whines and wimpers for her supper and makes me feel like a bad mommy. By that time my knees are frozen in pain and I walk down the stairs like Fred Sanford.

No way has that been said...to busy with talking outloud and determined to conqur that which would tempt the best into throwing anything.

We had a pong game when it first came out and I used to play some games,did the sonic thing and all but it has been years since I've played any.

Now C-D is my biggest consumer of time
