    My grandson plays Red Dead. He is 10 so he mostly just catches a horse and rides around, sets up a camp, scrounges for stuff. He does "jobs" to earn money or steals things and sells them to buy hats and boots . The graphics are really good on that one. Once his horse died and it was very traumatic for him. He stays away from the saloons and banks.

    My nephew plays that game a lot, I've watched him and he's really progressed far in the game and pretty much stayed honest and not committed much crime or theft lol...He said he is trying to keep a good reputation in the towns he visits but sometimes he will make a saved game and go on a rampage but not save it, he said his character just needed to blow off some steam...lol

    I`ve completed most all games i have in story mode. one of the first times playing i was riding along in red dead i was ambushed fell off my horse so i pulled out my shotgun blasting everything including my horse accidentally, walked for a long bit and got attacked again only by wolves and died. Nowadays i just go hunting. when i started rdr2 online i had to make a new character. tried to make him look like billy the kid. Speaking of which i worked with a guy related to him .McCarty,

    I must live in a bubble. Never played any games like that. Not since A10 Warthog on an old 386 anyway :)

    The graphics in that game Red Dead Redemption 2 look really good, very detailed and realistic, even the sounds and sound effects...Kobi has been fooled before hearing a dog bark in the game and he thought there was a real dog nearby lol...

    Slept until 11am this morning, must have been tired lol...it was cold last night and I didn't want to run any heat, so it was cooler in the house and it was comfortable in bed under blankets...Kobi must have agreed, he didn't wake me up but slept at my feet, good dog...

    I wish I had. I got a new computer from work and hooked it up, could not get anything to work. Spent 4 hours waiting while tech guys in Florida "tried" things, then discussed things, then finally told me to use my old computer and send that one back.

    After the rains we had last week the lawn needed cut badly. That was accomplished this morning. However my neighbor across the street has everyone beat. I’ve been counting, he has mowed eight times thus far. That’s way too much for me in the month of April.

    I have a lizard problem, rather not kill them but it may have to come to that...First I need to find out how they are getting into my workshop, I thought I sealed all the cracks and creveous but apparently not...They are hanging out in the loft area mainly, I guess because its warmer up there, and they do get insects in the building...The problem is they are shitting everywhere up there, bird sized shyte, I can't have that continuing...Kobi can hear them moving around above us when we are inside, he knows what they are, he's caught one before, it upsets him they are up there scurrying around...

    These lizards are about 4 to 5 inches long and multicoloured...I have to get rid of them, maybe make a trap to catch them alive and take them out into the woods at least a half mile away and set them free lol...That's my first thought but I have to do something, any ideas?...

    Try leaving a big banana for them the ones here seem to like that. Maybe make a one way trap with a nana inside for them to eat ?

    He is a bit on the strange side but he is a good neighbor all in all.

    Spent a few hours out there yesterday mowing and trimming and hacking and killing. I have to clean out the planting beds in front of the house and get about 6 yards of mulch dropped off. Great little farm nearby we get landscape supplies from right down the road but the guy's getting on in years and his driving is problematic. Last fall he dumped a few yards of top soil and I later found a big busted plastic light out on the front lawn - he must have bounced off the utility pole on his way down. Maybe I'll just park my truck in the neighbor's driveway that day :)

    Had a Unilock fancy-brick paver sidewalk, retaining wall and steps installed in '98. Gotta dig the damned steps up and retaining wall and add some drainage and fill and relevel it all. Don't mind the exercise, don't even mind the digging but those pavers are a giant pain in the shorts. Next time it's poured concrete baby. Maybe colored and stamped but no more of the ten million little bricks with weeds between them.
