"The Phoenix Rises!" caffeine_induced78's Profile

I am back! 18 months ago, my computer was gone. Somebody came in to my home and stole it. Today - a new computer I bought was delivered to me. More to come soon!

Then I grew some more.....

It's been a while everyone. So what have I been up to? I quit smoking, I don't drink as much caffeine - but I have made up for these by continuing to drink (if you ever come to Denver, I will have to take you to the Lancer where they pour a shot in a highball glass). I have been working on saving and investing money, and I now have a great group of friends. A group that plays extreme croquet in the summer and gets very serious about it, a group that goes to trivia at the bar every week. I never would have guessed that I would be 30 and going to keggers.

    Hi Bryant, Thinking of you, with the floods in Colorado... even if you're still in Eugene... keep associating you with boulders. Wow you look really grown up on your Passport pic! :-) And are you in 'A' flights at croquet now? :-) I play since last summer but not often enough, there's no letter for my kind of level... All that strategic fumbling must be good for the brain at least!
    Best wishes, take care. From already cold Montreal.

    You are back.....not, apparently. I look like heading Denver way and was going to try for a meet. Also, wondering how your art was going. Cheers, Ian
