Garage sale yesterday  
I'm still here. I've just been gaming a lot. I'm very much enjoying Fallout New Vegas again. I think I'll be beating it soon and will start it over again as Cope. It really is amazing how the game can be so different every time. The choices I've made so far have been very different than the way Chris has played. So now that I'm seeing stuff I've never seen before I'm really enjoying it. But still no skishkabeb. It's an extremely rare weapon and it was so perfect for Owen. I did manage to get him a tux, top hat and cane so he looks like he does in my dancing drawing. That's cool. The tux even has tails like he would want. I took pictures of two funny graphical glitches. This game is full of them and it's very likely it just wasn't tested and put out as soon as possible. But before that. Here's a funny picture of Henrietta.

Hee hee. She jumped up on the service window and was screaming over and over demanding food and attention. I thought it was very funny how she was under the Happy Thanksgiving sign. Like she could be the Thanksgiving chicken hehe. I'm looking forward to a nice quiet Thanksgiving this year. I'm going to try to make some sugar almonds and may-be some pumpkin pancakes. I still have some pumpkin meant in the fridge. Well I still have several of my pumpkins lying around. They're just too big for us to be able to eat them all. Sucks I'll have to throw most of them out when they're so huge. But not before I collect the seeds.

I've got some cucumbers growing in a container in the front yard that are doing pretty well. And want to share some Fallout screencaps.

Here is the pot. This is the same one that had the ball luffas in it. It has a horned melon, a striaght 8, and an armenian cucumber growing. Plus one unknown that isn't doing too well.

This is a straight 8. I've always wanted to grow these but never had luck. This year is the first time we might get some good ones. I must share these on my community.

A baby straight 8. I hope the thorns will fall off them and they'll be smooth like the ones I see in the super market.

This is after you enter the gate at Freeside in Fallout. I guess the grass decided to load several feet in the air. I was cracking up at this. Almsot as funny as the head that floated away in Fallout 3. I have no idea how a glitch this bad could happen. How can they not notice stuff like that unless it wasn't tested?

And a floating plate. I told Chris it was a real flying saucer. There are monsters in the game called lake lurks that look just like Creature from Black Lagoon. They shoot these blue sonic rings at you. Well once a ring got stuck and also was just floating and making all the cool zipping noises. I was able to walk through it without taking any damage. It was very funny.

And yesterday we had a much needed garage sale. We did quite well and sold the two big ugly green chairs we had. I'm so glad about that. But we weren't able to get rid of our book shelves or my stupid violin. Goodness, I don't think I could give the darn thing away. People looked at it and held it but no takers. Since I've been emptying boxes in the garage though I finally got to see just what a huge amount of progress I've made. Chris consolidated some then pushed them all back against the wall. WOW! There's so much space in the garage now! We can actually walk. It's just amazing. I wish I had taken a before picture. I wish I'd taken a pic from when I started. So there are two walls with boxes. The big wall is almost done. I'll start on the little wall which looks like a huge under taking but again so long as a work at it slowly. Like one or two a day I'm sure it will eventually get done and look so much better. Gosh we can almost put a car in the garage now. I really don't want the garage to be for storage. It's supposed to be for cars.

Glad you're having fun with the game. Lol those floating things are funny XD
Also glad you did well and sold those chairs. I hope you can sell the violin soon too.

I beat it last night and was very happy with the ending. I'm looking forward to playing as Cope.
Thanks. It opened up more room getting rid of them. Yes, that violin needs to go.

I did not have time for gaming at all since, hmm, over a week, d'awh.
Henrietta is cute there!
XD We also have such a thing at the house we would love to get rid of finally. *lol* It's a glass dinning table and some ugly metal chairs that belong to it and nobody ever wanted to have it so far.
The whole thing is not just ugly but uncomfortable also. XD

Hopefully you'll have time to play soon. I highly recommend the two Fallout games.
I love my noisy hen. She's very sweet.

That's really annoying when you have ugly furniture taking up space and it's not even practical.

I laughed so hard when I read that. XD It can be hilarious when objects in games appear somewhere that they're blatantly not supposed to appear. I'm reminded of this glitch I've encountered in Spore where, occasionally, if there was an unhatched egg left in the nest of a species that I'd just made extinct, it'd suddenly be hovering up in the air for a short time before disappearing.

Hehe, I was laughing imagining that floating egg. I love video game glitches so long as they don't break the game. I need to post a funny one about clothes next time I update.

It was hilarious, especially since I couldn't destroy the egg once it was stuck up in the air like that. It's almost as if the game were taunting me for not remembering to destroy the egg and get the points from it before rendering the species extinct.

That's a funny photo of Henrietta :) I love your decorations, too.

Lol, love your screen shots, too. They're definitely UFOs, lol :)

Maybe you could sell that violin via eBay?
