Well, at least I can still work on my stuff for this year's Team Fortress 2 Halloween event as it seems that Merasmus the Magician is offering contracts with the rewards being Halloween items from past Halloween events, so I might as well take up his offer.
Ah, I think my family only went as far as The Living Seas. We did not travel over to the World Showcase to see the various countries there and the Disney characters who call them home, like Aladdin and Jasmine in the Morocco pavilion.
Well if you ever return to Disneyworld, you should go to Epcot. Also, if you ever do have dinner with Cinderella again, please try not to feel embarrassed. She is just a woman in a costume who is not going to hurt you.
Well, my dad works at Meijer's, my mom works at Rite-Aid, my younger brother works for a computer programming company, and my youngest two brothers are in college, so things should improve in a couple of years.
Yeah, but asking me if I flunked out was a dumb question. I never, NEVER, NEVER, give up on my education, period. My professors, the dean and assistant dean, my disabilities adviser, they all helped me get through college, pass my classes, and get my diploma.
As an added bonus, I graduated when the SVSU President was announcing his retirement at the same time, so I was honored to be graduating with the retiring SVSU President.
However, even though I graduated, there was no way, even with a well-paying job with my Bachelor's Degree, that I would be able to pay back fifty-thousand plus in Federal student loans before I, how should I say this...
Joined my deceased relatives in Heaven.
That's why my parents and me were able to work out an agreement to have my loans outright discharged under the agreement that I did not look for employment for a couple of years or so. If I got employed before that time limit expired, my loans would have to be repaid, no questions about it.
Sorry. I was trying to phrase it in a way that did not sound too disrespectful or gruesome since I would either be an old man or pretty much dead by the time my loans would've been paid off if me and my parents had not worked out that agreement to get them discharged outright due to my autism.
Yeah, I've only entered Ontario while on the boat tour, but only for maybe a few minutes to an hour based on the boat's speed and how long it takes for the locks to raise or lower to either Lake Huron's or Lake Superior's water level.
Saint Martin, eh? I've seen the airport there on a documentary called Most Extreme Airports where they show the top 10 airports known for unique designs, like Princess Juliana International Airport on Saint Martin, known for how people on Maho Beach tend to cling to the security fence and hang on as a jet takes off or watch the jets come in for landing due to how low they have to be to make it to the runway.
Perhaps. Anyway, my father has a friend who lives in Alexandria, Virginia. In the summer of 2012, a huge storm struck the Washington, DC area and he was out of power for six days. He had to empty out his refridgerator and he had to spend a night at his mother-in-law's house in Annapolis, Maryland.
The power company over here in Mid-Michigan, Consumers Power, just about does the same thing with getting out and fixing the power grid whenever a blackout occurs.
One happened a few months ago, and affected not just my house, but also the County Courthouse, County Jail, and the Sheriff's Department, which were several blocks down the street from where I live. Thankfully, the deputies were doing a fine job with maintaining order with the inmates during the power loss.
I had to bide my time with visiting the nearby fire station and talking to the Lieutenant on duty until they got a dispatch for a two-car crash. First time at the fire station when a 911 call came in.
Several times when my family took our annual trip to Mackinaw City when I was younger. One time, I saw the archaeologists hard at work with finding pieces of the fort's past to add to the fort's collection.
Of course. Mackinaw City is a place I always enjoy visiting to see much of Michigan's history at, especially with how recently it has added the retired icebreaker, the USCGC Mackinaw, to the list of places I visit.
The Mackinaw is a museum ship now, like the USS Midway over in San Diego or the USS Intrepid in NYC.
Well, I plan on watching the Macy's parade and enjoying some time with my family since I am hoping my younger brothers who moved out recently come back to spend the holiday with the rest of the family.
I see. Well my great-grandmother Marguerite lived to be 92 and my great-grandfather Thomas lived to be 94. He and my great-grandmother Teresa both died shortly after I was born. Teresa was a heavy smoker who died of a stroke at 86.
Well, it seems that my maternal grandfather's new girlfriend does care for him a lot, but my mom thinks of her trying to muscle into my grandfather's money.
However, I do respect that despite the hostility, my grandfather does show he still loves me and my brothers as he attended our graduation parties, so I am able to still maintain contact with him, and he did contact us regarding my aunt being treated for her breast cancer, so he does still care for his surviving children and grandchildren.
These sisters were two famous actresses: Olivia de Haviland and Joan Fontaine. They never got along with each other and they cut off contact with each other when their mother died on February 20, 1975. Then Joan died on December 15, 2013 and now, it is impossible for these sisters to reconcile with each other.
Oh boy! I can relate! My younger brother is six inches taller than me and he is a lot stronger than me. So he can easily beat me up. He lives in San Diego, but he is coming over for a visit next weekend.
I only did because the Fitzgerald is one of the more famous shipwrecks of the Great Lakes, and since the families of Captain McSorley and his crew wanted to leave the shipwreck alone as a memorial to their fallen, it has been that way ever since, especially to the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society as they preserve the Fitzgerald and other ships resting at the bottom of Whitefish Bay.
Also, it was because I brought up Whitefish Point as one of the places I visit when crossing the Mackinac Bridge into Michigan's Upper Peninsula on a day trip.
Still, the Fitzgerald does not garner as much fame as being a Great Lakes shipwreck compared to the shipwrecks of the RMS Titanic, the German battleship Bismarck, and the USS Arizona.
That's good to hear. I'm glad you paid your respects to our fallen service members who died on December 7th, 1941.
Just like how I paid my respects at the local Veterans Memorial Plaza this past Veterans Day and saw some service members from their respective branch's Reserves attending as well. Even my county sheriff was there to say a few words in regards to the memorial service.
I'm probably going to be getting ready for Saturday as that's the air date for the Season 5 finale of Friendship is Magic, and it looks like things are going to get crazy since time travel is involved.
Definitely! Though when it will debut is still unknown. Many fans are raging that it might be a whole year before the next season airs, especially after what we went through waiting for Season 5 and then the mid-season hiatus for that to boot.
Understood. I still enjoy it, but in terms of favorites, I put it in my list of favorites of present-day television series alongside PAW Patrol, while I have another list for older shows I used to watch when I was younger that were my favorites then, like Baywatch and M*A*S*H.
