Card Games and Board Games

Jan 14, 2014 Author Guy

Back when I was a kid, we played card games every weekend. It was a family thing. There were standard rules for a variety of card games and what we played often depended on how many other kids or grownups were interesting in playing with you. If only two people were going to play, that meant War or Spit or Cribbage and sometimes two handed Pinochle.

If three people wanted to play, that opened up a whole bunch of other games, like Spoons or Canasta. There are three player versions of a lot of games, too, like Rummy.

But the real fun started when we had four people – that’s when we played Hearts or Spades or Euchre or Pinochle or Rummy or Pennies from Heaven…. We also played a game called Red Dog, which was solitaire with others. That’s the only way I can describe. It is a fast paced game where everyone has their own deck of cards but you can play off what other people put in the middle.

Sometimes we wold get out the board games instead of cards. The Monopoly games always went on for hours – those were usually played in the winter when it was too cold to go outside and play. I always like the game Clue, but it was hard to find other family to play with me because I almost always won. LOL

Playstation 4 Lay-away

Aug 30, 2013 Author Guy

Everybody knows that the new version of the Playstations, number 4, is coming out the end of this year – just in time for Christmas. And it’s going to be expensive – about $400 for the new unit, which include a Blu-Ray player. I haven’t heard of the new games will be more expensive or not. I bet they have a price point that has already maxed out and people will just stop buying games that cost too much. Personally, I think $60 and more is way too much money for a fucking Playstation Game and I can rent them for a cheap week of fun for a lot less than $60. We will see.

What I’ve heard from friends is that WalMart is offering some kind of advance purchase lay-away plan. The game is not out yet, so they have no inventory. But you can commit to buying the game when it does come out in December by giving Wally money every month. By the time the new Playstation hits the stores, yous will be paid for and all you have to do is cruise by the store and pick up it. The brilliance in this plan is that Wally gets the use of your money for up to 5 months and they don’t have to do anything but bank it. And a bunch of dumb fucks that can’t just save their money in the sock drawer are going to fall for it!

Homeland

Apr 10, 2012 Author Guy

There is an awesome show on Showtime called Homeland. I have been watching the series from episode one on the on demand feature. This show is the fucking best. CIA and Marines and terrorists makes for really good couch potato time. Yes every now and then I need some down time just to myself watching the boob tube. Of course they make us look like a bunch of neurotic Americans in it, but then again some of us are. I wonder if some of this is really true though, because it seems so real.

I am sure that the writers have gotten some of their material from documents that were declassified to make this. They had to have. When I am done going through this series, I am going to start watching a few of the others in the on demand menu. If I had known about these before, I would have already been watching them for sure. I can’t wait to see how this one ends, so I am going to veg out in front of the TV today and see if I can finish it today. I have to remember to tell my dad about this show. He will love it.

Crazy Videos

Sep 10, 2010 Author Guy

There are so many shows on the TV these days that are making a killing on Video taping. Of course America’s Funniest Videos has been around the longest, if you don’t want to count “Candid Camera” but now these video programmers are specializing their features. Like there a few on The Animal Planet that pertain to funny pet/animal videos, True TV has many that are about the bizarre and dangerous ones. There there are the cop and robbers ones that come on late at night, alot of which is captured on the camera installed in most police cars these days. And there are plenty more out there to be enjoyed that I haven’t named off here.

It just amazes me how much is caught on some time of video these days. Big brother has arrived and big time wouldn’t you agree?
