There was an illness going around the retirement home and Pa just had too many simultaneous health complications to fight off the infection. Ma has made a recovery, but because she has Alzheimer's she doesn't even know that Pa is dead.

I was a pallbearer at Pa's funeral yesterday. He received military honors because he was a master sergeant in the U.S. Airforce and a veteran of the Korean War. There were a lot of Lion's Club members who attended, because Pa used to be an active member. To say that he was a good man is an understatement.

Unlike my dad who died last year, I had a very positive relationship with Pa. My mom was single and worked late hours when I was in elementary school, so Ma or Pa would pick me up after school. I practically lived at my grandparents house.

There's this dice game called Mississippi Marbles that Ma and Pa learned eons ago, and they taught it to their children, their grandchildren, and their great grandchildren. I tended to be tight-lipped around my grandparents about the fact that I played Dungeons and Dragons, but RPGs aside I think it's fair to say that rolling dice is in my blood. This activity connects multiple generations of my family, and will likely continue to do so for future generations. There's an unofficial element of the game for our family involving smack talk, claiming to have skill in a game of chance, accusing each other of cheating or conspiring, and other such ridiculousness. Of course, Pa was the best at that part. Years ago my sister gave Pa a Mississippi Marbles trophy, bestowing upon him the title "Mouth of the South."

Thank you for your stories about your Pa, Wihzerd. While he has passed away physically, it's obvious that his influence in the world echoes through stories and memories.

Apparently supper glue and fingerprint readers don't mix.

Was the glue on the reader or the finger or both?

On the reader is a mess.

On the finger is understandable.

On both is funny.

On my fingers.
but the real problem came when it wasn't on my fingers anymore.
After scraping the super glue off the finger print reader still couldn't read anymore. I had to log in with the backup password and add a new profile till my finger recovers.

Sounds like you ripped some skin and messed up your print or there was glue stuck in the crevices of your print mucking up the pattern. Likely both.

At least you don't have a print read stuck to your finger. :lol:

So a guy at work was sneaking up via the warehouse to take break off camera. He was sitting at a spare table we use for parties. So the boss took away the table. Then he sat at the table for storing clothes and bags. Took that away too. Now he's having off camera breaks using a trashcan as a table.

So was he just taking an authorized break away from everyone else or was he taking unauthorized breaks?
