Ahhhhhhh, Kate! My gaming buddy!!! What would I do without you! I never want to have to find out! I told you this was a great group of people!!! Not just gamers either. It's a tight knit group of people who care about other people, too!
I left my job to take care of my elderly parents back in 1990 and can't say I'm really retired yet, but for all intent and purposes *I'm retired*!!! I work harder now at 66 than I did on the job, but the pay is non-existent.
My brother, Chuck, got me started and set up with a computer in '94 and gave me Myst to play! That was IT!!! It took me 2 months to play it and THEN he tells me about all these help forums and walkthrus!!! ....after I strangled him... I started collecting these things and like everyone else, I have a room full of shelves all over with games stacked to the ceiling. The first big quake here could be my last!!! hahahaha I'm in California and it will bury me in games! ROFL!
It's been a great escape for me to immerse myself in a game, as well as great entertainment and loads of laughs! I think about all the choice lines that Lewton had and Tex Murphy... and the serious scary stuff with The Beast Within and Gabe!
I don't have much free time to hang out in the forum yet, but my parents are still with me anyway.
This has been a wonderful home to me! Thanks to all of you who took me under your wing! Syd was the one who suggested I join. I thought Syd was a 'guy' first! She has such a great sense of humor that I felt right at home here!
I still wonder if she ever finished Luxor!!! hahahaha There was a 'whole' thread on that when I started!
Gaming keeps you verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry young at heart!
