To be present here...

I consider that a present.


**Thanks for Being There**

Though I'm sometimes a dope,
It is my significant hope
That I sometimes give you smiles
Across these many network miles.

Boston T train issue disrupts morning commute.

Some riders complain bitterly.

One rider notes, "I've lived here for 31 years and it's the first time this has happened."

Some people have their priorities askew, misunderstanding what a "treasure" really is.

Every day, yes, in every way, I look forward to the WotD! i guess you'd say I have a positive outlook.


Is slime prone to anarchism?

I do have a very fond memory of watching a slime mold crawl over itself, coming up out of a crack in the deck around a swimming pool. I watched it slide and shift about an inch in half an hour.

Fascinating stuff.

I missed today's dawn.
Overnight too wakeful,
Left me with a yawn.

Home team plays late tonight
So I guess that I am grateful
Or I'd be in extra sleepy plight.


Thanks for reaching out to connect.

Your account seems a bit underused at this point. Is it that you have not had responses?

That's a real drag. While this place isn't a "like" factory, it does give us the chance to interact.

I hope that will work out.

Of course, if you decide later that you made a mistake, drop me.

Have fun.
Be productive.
Be safe.

I think I like version 2 with a word substitution to prevent doubling up on "hard", slightly better.

"Everything is a Work-in-Progress."

You've connected.

Thank you.

Your account looks new.

Before we can do a good job of interacting, you'll need to add a bit more information in your profile and do some posts...we call them "toots", here, of course.

Whatever else you do,
have fun;
be creative;
be safe.


⭐ from the present for the present of a ⭐

Sometimes we suffer the "slings" and arrows of outrageous fortune. Sometimes we bring our problems onto ourselves.

Thanks for the reciprocal connection.

As you will soon determine, my toots are frequently random.

I'm a fan of Free Software and daily user of to do .

If time passes (it does tend to do so) and you find my toots a waste of your time, move on, leaving me behind.

I wish you a full ration of fun as you explore your game development options.

Be creative.
Be safe.

(I used to go to a dentist with your last name. Small world.)


Stick with it.
Retirement AND game development are possible.

Well, not for me, perhaps, but that might be related to my other interests which have blossomed since retiring.
