My parents built a new place, and so this weekend we went through some of our old stuff. I found many interesting items. We found my dad's previously thought lost collection of comic books from the late 1960's. Spiderman, Superman, Archie, Sgt Rock and some others. Besides that, I found the first cassette tape that I ever bought. KISS, Crazy Nights. I still have a cassette player, so I rocked a little Crazy Crazy Nights. I have never been much of a KISS guy, but it was kind of fun to break back out.
I had almost totally forgotten about our little goblinoid friend. Brandon drew this after one of our gaming sessions. The funny thing is, I bet everyone who played that night can picture him leading us for a little gold. Remember his name?
I also found some old newspaper articles. The good 'ol Midland Times. Cory is going to Meistersinger Honor Band, it says, (but wasn't it really Meistersinger Honor Choir?).

The Nintendo Wii makes it debut at Peltgrande's House

I am doing some major spring cleaning and house repairs in getting the house ready for sale. Paul came over to help me, and he got a hold of 2 Nintendo Wii's recently, so I bought one. Absolutely love it. The controls are a blast, and it is playing video games in a whole new way. My love for Nintendo has returned.
We played tennis, raced on cows, bowled and snowboarded.
Next on my game list is Zelda, which is fantabulous from what I've heard. You get to shoot the bow using your controller and nunchuk.
What is really sWiit is that the Wii is fully backward compatible with the Nintendo GameCube and includes four built-in GameCube controller ports and two GameCube memory card slots, and an SD slot for additional memory storage. Wii also features Nintendo's Virtual Console, a library of games from the Nintendo Entertainment System, Super NES, Nintendo 64, Sega Genesis, and Turbografix-16 systems. Games can be purchased and downloaded over Nintendo's online Wii Store, where they are stored on the Wii's system memory or SD card. Chad Fields, this means you can have your cake and eat it too. You get a Wii, can still play all your Gamecube games on the Wii, and can get Golden Axe Sega Genesis style. I am drooling thinking about all this. Mmmmmmmmm.

Mr. Accidental Scrub Out Guy

General Surgery rotation? So this is how Vint got out of every surgery. That and the staff thought both him and I were the same person, so he was always there.

Mr. Really Bad With Children Guy

I am pretty sure this was the reaction was the same most kids had with Sam.
