How is life on your end Sue?

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins...
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

Re: Andyland Chat Thread Part 2 (they made me.)

Rabid- hmmmm not sure. Some nice folks some not so nice- the usual

Life is really great! Eldest ( read above) is in college, youngest high school and it amazes me how grown up they are and how old I am Work is good. I totally can relate to the burn out process. But I still have a nice crew and a new partner who is lovely so ...............Hubs is teaching, writing ( has a new gig at Ellery Queen Mystery Mag) and judging so he is super happy. His long standing baking love has blossomed as well. The smell of home made bread weekly is a good thing.

What is up with you?

Wow, my how the time flies. Glad to hear life is great for you.

Life is pretty good on my end. Been in Portland almost 3 years now. I work as an assistant for an e-bay reseller. Not a bad gig. I started getting involved in competitive pool when I got up here and now I play a whole lot. Leagues and tournaments and all.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins...

Somehow I would never have pictured you playing competitive pool. Portland Fats huh? I understand that Portland is a lovely city- glad all is well there for you.

Re: Andyland Chat Thread Part 2 (they made me.)

Well, I have always loved playing pool and have always been pretty natural at it. I was playing pool at a bar one night and someone asked me if I'd join his pool team. I figured what the heck, why not. And now here I am rubbing noses with professional players. Took third in a big tournament this Sunday. Have an even bigger tournament in 2 weeks. Last time I played it I finished in the top 16. Top 8 would be great this time around.

So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins...

Through this world I've stumbled, So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word to find, The truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles, And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath, Your words keep me alive
And I would be the one, To hold you down
Kiss you so hard, I'll take your breath away
And after, I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Yep, Portland's been my home for nearly 3 years now. Are you in Seattle now?

Let me know what you think of the winters there. Eldest is still the son of few words so it is hard getting any info from him

Oh Amber- good luck with the snow Just received a pic from eldest with the view outside his dorm room. Overall a slushy mess of snow and rain of 2-4 inches. That means the city will be at a standstill Fortunately no school tomorrow there.

Re: Andyland Chat Thread Part 2 (they made me.)

I went to Superset Tennis in Portland in 2003. I was there about 36 hours but I still liked what I saw of the city.

Sue, perfect timing in your real estate transaction. I also think of Costco whenever someone says Kirkland, WA, I just didn't want to admit it!

Seems everyone is doing fairly well around here, glad to hear that.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Re: Andyland Chat Thread Part 2 (they made me.)

What a crappy AO 2012 for the American boys.

Hard to think about going to a tournament these days for me Fee, when for one I hate the heat, and two I can watch a lot on the tennis channel. Maybe not some of the lesser known players or those I tend to follow but hey it is still tennis. Only thing I would miss is meeting you all.
