JPA-5 Just Playin’ Around 5
Are you JUST PLAYIN’ AROUND the arcade for fun and like to talk gaming and joke around with other players? Well then, you’ve come to the right spot!
Please feel free to post a question about a game, share your gaming highs and lows, and join in the playful banter that might (okay it will) come up every now and then.
And please mark your calendar for every Friday Game Night with Sean Daly. We meet up here on the thread and watch the show together while celebrating with a themed party. So make sure you come by — the party starts at 8:00. (We also share the answers to trivia questions to earn extra tickets in the arcade).
And for the first-time reader, here is a quick summary to help understand what some of these nutty folks are talking about:
Bleeper — Tina1212’s neighborhood rooster who got his name because the HSN naughty word filter changed his morning call to *BLEEP*-a-doddle-do
Tango — Rachel64’s Chinese crested dog who has a compulsion to twirl. And twirl some more.
You will see lots of cool avatars of dogs, cats, and sheep that have evolved into personalities that sometimes engage in "picture wars".
And along with the animals come an amazing group of gamers and wanna-be gamers who have wonderful senses of humor.
All are welcome here! Post once, daily, or whenever the urge strikes you. We can’t wait to meet you!

been reading some sad posts here too, and want to send my prayers too you. love you all, can’t help it:heart:
Oh My, I keep scrolling looking for the thread, gotta get used to our new home JPA-5. Just saying hello and happy to read SocialButterfly and Chairman posts.:womanlol:
Good Morning Friends and…Furbabes!!!! :heart:
Gosh…our new digs seem so…spacious! I told the Tangster not to get any big ideas. I saw him eyeing the open flooring and could almost ‘hear‘ his little brain tracking his next…. SPIN CYCLE!!
I’m still trying to catch up reading everyone’s posts. Seems I over did it yesterday. We had a HORRENDOUS storm the other night. News said it was the worst storm in approx. 24 years! Over 60mph winds and torrential, completely sideways rain coming directly at the back of my home…my bedroom slider and kitchen window. We were all huddled on the bed…scared out of our minds…but thankfully…we all made it out in one piece.
So then yesterday…I went out to view the damage and decided to ‘clean up’the blown debris. What I hadn’t planned…and found myself too deeply into…was to cut down and pull ALL THE WEEDS by THEIR ROOTS…as we had so much rain. To say I almost passed out numerous times from the heat and humidity would be an understatement. And…so…today? My hands are charlie horse…not to mention my ‘other parts’. Seems I’ll have to recoup before the Luau tomorrow!! :womantongue:
Thanks to herndon for our new home! Perhaps she’d like to join the Tangster around for a day. Trust us…it would do wonders for the girlish waistline!!!!! :womansurprised: :womansurprised:
(more later when my fingers are more cooperative!!!)
SB summed up pretty much everything except about The Tree.
For decades, there was a large oak at that corner, which is known as Toomer’s Corner. There is an old drug store diagonally across the intersection called Toomer’s Drugs that has been there forever (it was there when my dad went to Auburn- they serve wonderful hand-squeezed lemonade). It was tradition for the students to roll the tree with toilet paper after an Auburn victory.
A few years ago, a University of Alabama fan got it in his head that it would be good to poison the decades-old oak. Despite a Herculean effort from many people, the tree died. Auburn fans were pretty much in shock, and I don’t think most Bama fans found it that funny either. The guy’s life is over- his friends abandoned him, he lost his family and job.
But the tree represents new hope. I don’t even like football but seeing that tree brought a shiver to my spine.
PS. Rolling commences Fall semester 2016!
Good Morning Friends!
Last week was crazy. We missed all the fun with you guys but we went to visit hubby’s Mom in Alabama, as well as his Alma Mater – Auburn. He has a vacation and we take full advantage of the rental car. As soon as we got back we went to the premier of "One flew over the Cuckoos nest". Great rendition of the book and movie, however, a little different. Tonight the major sify Convention Dragoncon starting. So, this weekend we’ll have fun there. On Monday we are going to visit our great old friend and target practice for the hunting season. We hope to get a chance to go to "Cymbeline" before we leave for Vegas. On top of that, I hope to hit major local retailer for Labor Day weekend sales. WHOA! WHAT-A-MONTH!
As far as my accident and health goes I no longer experience any discomfort. So, as soon as my car will be out of the shop its the end of that. Thank you all for prayers and well wishes. Sending you the same, multiplied. Love to all!:heart:

Hi herndon, I like the opening! Morning All:womanhappy:
Good morning, good job Herndon, breakfast really looks good but you know that I have to wait to eat. Good morning ladies, I call dibs on the room with the big window.:womanlol: Wishing everyone a beautiful day. Stay prayed up. ENJOY:heart:
Just a reminder that this Friday’s Trivia Party will be during Sean Daly’s Friday Night Game Night. So be here tomorrow night, if you can, around 8PM Eastern for our Hawaiian Luau themed get-together. Food, fun and tickets as we all work on the Trivia questions as a group.
Very nice Opening Post, herndon. I think that starting a new thread calls for a special breakfast.
Good Morning RAK PAKers! :womanlol: It’s another glorious day for fun and mayhem. So get on that leaderboard, game hard for those tickets and shop til you drop! :womanlol::heart: Another new thread waiting for all your pictures and comments (I can’t wait to see what you’re up to). :smileylol:
