It seems to me that a large percentage of us that are left are of, shall we say, some years of experience. I apologize to you pre-arthritics that may have gotten lumped in there. That being the case, the chances of there being a pcom softball team are a little long. That don't eliminate all the old folk activities though.
Now personally I'd really like to take up ping pong again, but that requires a private space. Although I did work for one guy that put a table on the dance floor of his bar during the week. Almost had to get another one cause, on rainy days especially, there was a line to play. But I digress.
We're probably old enough on average to have played some pinball along the way. That's an idea, there has to be some machines left at some local establishment(s). Something like that. Ideas? Interest? Should I just shut up and sit down? Perform some impossible physical act maybe?

Ok, y'all didn't like that one. So here's another off the wall idea.
If you have hot dogs for supper, and to those hot dogs you add a single piece of bacon per each, and you own a pet pig, have you just added insult to injury? And do you make him watch you eat it?

Nah...we've met in person several times.

 

I actually sort of like you.  


Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".

 

 

I guess you haven't been to Detroit recently?  Or, Newark or East St.Louis or Gary, IN, or Stockton, CA?

 

You know, those bastions of liberal Democrat government that have been so successful in attracting wealthy, educated leaders and businesspeople.  Progressive people,  who have uplifted the poorer of their brethren, so their city can be that bright example of how well Socialism works.

Logic says you'd most likely suck. Why would the opposition be disinclined to come watch you suck?

Matter of fact is was at a pcom sponsored/partnered/something event that I saw you and LPPT for the first time. I remember thinking to myself "Man, what a pair that is.", then a little later I saw you too.

I want to know about the Outrageous Mini Golf place, myself. 

 

Looks kinda dark in there (from the street) to be trying to play putt - putt.

Absolutely a good place to play putt putt. We go about twice a month. They have a senior citizen discount too.

As an older single gentleman, who doesn't want the cops called on 'em, I'd just have to go with a hard no on the neon mini golf. Having the wife with ya is one thing. By yourself is just a bad look. Kind a like going to Chuck E Cheese and swearing it's for the pizza.

I don't believe we've ever met, but a lot of people I know who have met you tell me that you're a likable guy in person.

I'd have a beer with you. Not everyone takes this forum stuff personally. :)

I'd pay for the beer if y'all record video and post it.

 

I'd pay for two beers if y'all would also invite a certain former member.

LOL. Inviting the certain former member would likely not end well.

Yeah, let's invite TBAR. Of course, he is always lurking nearby.

A great off the wall idea generated by the computer disposal thread.

 

Since shooting is like bacon and just makes everything better and more fun. And there was a thought about an activity we could get folks together for. We'll form the pcom shooting club .....all get a gun and form up down to the shooting range off I-20 west.

 

That's the ticket......everybody armed and in one place commiserating. What could go wrong?

It's in the strip shopping center on the opposite end from Hiram Station.  Across from the Briar Patch.

Well yeah, but you were talking about a group thing, which is kinda different. 

 

Mostly though, I wanted to know if it was as dark in there as it looks from outside. 

 

Considering how long it's been since I played, that might not be such a bad thing, really.

Yes'em I was. Even in a group. That right there ain't right. A man my age in a place like that without being somebodies pawpaw.....well, I have to go back to the Chuck E Cheese example.

I stopped for a beer once at the way overpriced bar there in the building at 92 & 120. This is mid afternoon, (hey, it was hot, I'm retired). Just out of curiosity I walked thru the other side. Nobody in the place and I still felt creepy away from the bowling lanes.

Now something in the parking lot there at the neon golf where folks would also have a bar option would be ideal, but way bigger than we are around here anymore. Heck, I was thinking beer and pinball so if only 4 or 5 folks showed up it was still enjoyable.

Where can ya go for beer and pinball?  

 

 Never been there, and it may not even be open anymore. but there used to be a billiard place at the Plaza if that's more to your liking...

 

And you know, the neon golf place is strategically located within easy walking distance of not one but two establishments that serve adult beverages... B)
