Re: Matching parts to members (And you know that notion, just crossed my mind)

Found 2 of these paper clip dispensers. I am keeping one at my desk.

For sale at the parts counter. 20 bones for the one with dust (shown below) and 25 bones for the one that looks like it was never used. Easy decision I think for any System 3 fan.

SOLD

Above poem by :
Gregory Corso (one of the original beat poets from the mid 20th century)

Just lost another friend two days ago as you know Chris, so I especially like the part about death being a rumour started by life.

We use them at The North Star because of the amount of play they can stand without significantly wearing out or plain out busting. Perosnally I don't mind how they react to play, not...

I gotta admit... I cracked open a beer for that post RAB. Good reading. We needed a splash of human-factor. Wow... where to begin 2019... So many changes. I will keep it brief.

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

The last few days of 2018 felt emotionally satisfying and productive. This brought on a sense of awareness of the changes looming ahead. The only constant in life is change for some reason, I think I may have said this before. Christmas eve was spent with my 14 year old and his grandma. She was nurs...

Re: THE MAACA DAILY NEWS! Your daily read about YOU,the members!

Well, it has been a heck of year, wouldn't you agree ? I am pretty certain that you would if you think back a little. No surprise there, most of the years we look back on have been comprised of life events, work, family, friends and more life events plus their aftermaths. Fairly sure that this upcom...

Dude,
