Happy New Year!

Post by Gilgamesh » Wed Dec 31, 2014 3:02 pm

I hope you all have a safe one out there.

We're just going for dinner with friends and coming home for a quiet night. I'm getting pretty boring in my old age...

Happy New Year! Got a 4 year-old grandson at home. Life is not boring, but it is exhausting. Be amazed if I make it to the New Year in a conscious state.

I'm right there with you - our 4 year old granddaughter will be staying over with us Friday night. She's exhausting too, but she is a great joy in our lives.

Happy new year all. I was feeling very old, having my first kid on december 30th. But seeing grandparents talking... I guess I am still a young man [emoji41]

Your first child was born on the 30th? Congratulations!!!! I hope everyone is well, what a great new year's present.

Yes there are a few grandparents on here. All I can tell you is to cherish every day - they grow up faster than you can imagine, and you're left wondering where the time went.

Congrats Fireage on the new arrival! I figure I'll be a grandpa within the next 5 years. I'm looking forward to it actually. Happy New Years everyone.

Thanks guys [emoji4]

Yes all is well with mother and child. But Gil, I think I know where the time went... to the echo cluster.

Maybe now I will find out why people submit their turns at 02:00.

Yep - you will probably be up at that time - a lot. Say goodbye to sleep for a while.

Happy new year for you all. And congrats to the birth of your child, Fireage. The birth of our twins nearly two years ago was the reason why I had to quit playing a very long time. ;-) And even now it's hard to find the necessary silence to submit a reasonable turn. But according to Gilgamesh it's worth every moment to hear the laughter of your children which cannot be compared to anything.

Hmmm.... not even the humiliating defeat of your opponents and the exploding of Gorbies. We shall soon see :-)

I do know now at least that the crying seems to have preference over making turns... not in the least due to the threath of death by bludgeoning with a cake-roller from my significant other ;-)

Fireage, in a few years your turn submissions should return to normal :shock:

Happy new year to all of our old folks (me including) dads, grandpas, to be dads!
VGAP became a game (island) for older people unable to cope with the MMRPG anymore! ;-)

][avok make sure you keep this site up at least for the next 20 to 30 years. We will still hang around here when we have been long gone into retirement! :static:

Isn't this exactly the reason why we love this slow game play, we can sneak in here and there a few minutes from our demanding lifes and are waiting eagerly for the next thrilling surprise on the echo cluster... :D
