I think that I understand what you are saying my friend, especially the part about junctures and the undeniable and the overwhelming. These are definitely some of my favorite things in the life I have lived so far. Hot damn !

Truth can not be quelled, especially when it follows you around in and through the shadows of your path while you happen to look around and catch a glimpse of the bastard through the spectrum of your gaze, yet turn away because it may be too much to deal with in that particular here and now. Regardless, those of us who understand this real life gig know that a truth that follows you will not just go away, or that it can even be avoided or duped in any significant way. You will likely run into it again and again until you turn to face it and wrestle with its' weight and message. A truth looking for you is a son of a bitch no matter how you choose to deal or not deal with it. It remains there in your shadow.

So we exist, and we continue to struggle to find meaning beyond what is proposed by the commercialism and self serving empty desires of what makes those far removed from the masses rich and stupid and bored. Contempt and desires often promote anger and sadness somewhere. There is so much more to being alive in America than the American dream. The values of capitalism are man made, and the truth is not. Yet I agree, it is easier to make lots of money and buy happiness than it is to pursue truth when it is constantly changing and may or may not bring you peace and enlightenment, especially if you are a moron.

Best to chase pigeons while drunk in the public square I would say.

I am glad you understand my friend.
I will endeavor to explain better in the future.
So that others to may comprehend as well.
Where we are really going with this.

Phil's post is à propos for me these days. Taking the family on a long weekend getaway in Quebec City... Then I hit the road hard for work...

Monday, Prince George, BC.
Wednesday, Vancouver.
Friday, Edmonton
Sunday, Lloydminster
Monday, Edson
Tuesday, Red Deer
Wednesday, Calgary.
Monday after that, Regina
Wednesday, Winnipeg.
Then home.

Only to hit Toronto the week after that, then Rimouski and Amqui before the holidays...

Ho ho holy shit. Lol

Hell, I had no idea that the Beach Boys had studied Latin. :lol: If Latin hadn't died, it would have sounded exactly like it does as iterated by the beach boys above. Thank god we have all this information to keep the truth alive, clear and accessible to all. Freedom baby, what a privilage !

I even have proof from a reliable source that the beach boys would have spoken latin in the 1960's and/or Arabic in 2016.

"Holy hell. Poolman cooke Drano and bally boy." All alive and posting as we do know "offline".
The time seems appropriate to start telling some stories once again. All those tales you've, ah missed...

Keep in mind that the XL I received is more like a Large. Cost was 25 euros, shipping included.

Well, it appears that posting to explain things seems better than leaving them in the dark...
Although, the dark does have a certain allure to it...

...and I JUST arrived in my hotel room in Edmonton. And I must admit...as insane as it sounds, I prefer the crisp dry -12c Edmonton air than Surrey BC's wet muggy 8c.

It just feels more...holiday-ish.

And as for the dark, when Edgar Allan Poe stated "Sleep, those little slices of death, how I loathe them...", I rather embrace the dark and roll in it like a nice bed, and let the Sandman take me on a fantastic voyage across my mental landscape... Albeit, only for a few hours.

In darkness can be found light in our dreams.

Happy weekend to all! May your weekend shine as bright as a #44 in a 12v circuit, and for much longer. ;)

Winter is here.... It's pinball season. Tomorrow, I hunt to play somewhere here. Viva los Canadian Tracker. Lol

Viva los Canadian Tracker. Lol[/quote]
10 Years ago when I only had 1 Pin and didn't know any of the Pinball Crazies around me or on the Forums I wanted to play as many Pins as I could. Like you I travel for work but manly around SW Ontario and I had a copy of this in my Laptop bag, I would plan my day so I would be by a location with a pin around lunch and go and play it. I love playing on location when I can the only let down was poorly maintained pins.
Pinball Tracker took me many places and Businesses I would have never set foot in.
Playing.... SST, Buccaneer, Bally PB, Data East PB, Stern PB, TFTC, ACDC Pro, Hook, Totem
Gone. Magnotron, Bally Ticker Tape Bingo, Haunted House..... My Money and sanity
