I can't remember 4 but I can remember being 5. I was a little bugger, hyperactive, talkative (mainly to myself) and high on sugar. Sigh.... I never went anywhere without my pillow and I sucked my thumb. Sigh...


LOL! I bet you were an adorable child.

"The ocean is full 'cause everyone's crying
The full moon is looking for friends at high tide
The sorrow grows bigger when the sorrow's denied
I only know my mind
I am mine"

Waves at Fin! Great song, but just listened really quick. On a long distance call right now. I'll want to listen when I have more time to pay attention to the lyrics.

I will be going out tomorrow with my friend and will be gone for hours. I should be popping in when I get up...er...when I drag myself to the coffee pot to say hello to everyone. Hope you are well my friend!

I like your christmas tuned avatar. I have spent ten days with one can of beer in total. It gets too deep... these thoughts... this sobriety. **** it, got 6 litres of apple wine. 3-4 days of being sober is good, then the pressure builds up too intense. Don't worry i know what i am doing, this is learned twenty years ago. I will be in a good mood in about an hour. Plenty of dopamine in the brain due to sobriety. And now i will use some.

I would like to send all of you some hugs. And there are some who don't like hugs so how about a high five? I would like to send about this many:


Edit: Don't go checking back the shed. It could have been 8 days or something. My memory is like swiss cheese. That is likely the reason i fell for mandela effect but Night star played a major role in snapping me out of it before i snapped my brain for good.

Glad you like my avatar Fin! Gordi made it for me last year.

I hope you can keep up with your sobriety as it can really wreck havoc with your liver. Kudos to you for trying! Next time you feel like drinking, picture the Shed beings watching you with a stern look. LOL


I hope you are having a great day! Hugs!

Good day Sheddites of this magical realm! I have to get dressed and have more coffee so I will be ready for when I go out later. I just want to wish everyone a lovely day! Hope I come back and see that folks have posted and had some fun or shared things they wanted to share about their lives.

Much love to you all! HUGS!

I was thinking the same thing about Night Star's avatar too. She looks hotter in the winter than in the summer.


If I may, sometimes abstinence can be more detrimental than continued use because abstinence often leads to another spike, peak, binge or bender depending on your terminology. They have a Dutch phrase for this....translating.....we try to catch up lost "time". (Time being alcohol)

I feel singled out with that hug comment and I like it! Sorry, I ain't so touchy-feely. My parents did love me! High fives and fist-bumps are fine though. But for you, I have a hug. Don't tell the rest....!

[[[HUG]]]

As for brain, I have no idea. Brain is difficult and....unpredictable. I like music and kittens but I am not allowed kittens or any other animal except mosquitoes and flies. I feel like prisoner in Dutch gulag. I spend all time alone in my room, I have no job, no money and no visitors. I do have fun though. Sometimes.

Imagine the last paragraph spoken with a bad Dutch accent. It's how I speak Dutch.

Trust me, dear woman, i know effects of practically every substance has on human body. I am not aiming for full sobriety, i am aiming for no more than 1 or 2 days of drinking in a row.

Thank you for hoping, nightie, that i am having a great day. I am. Half because of your wish and half because of apple wine. I am not going to get wasted on this liquid. Just an uplifting buzz. I already have it. I don't even need that much, alcohol tolerance has been severely lowered in the past week or a little more

Your posts are always a delight to read... but don't feel like you need to be in prime shape to communicate.
We love you just the way you are , at any given time, on any given day.

Cheers my friend ...

Oh... Such a nice thing to say. I am not very good at receiving compliments but of course they feel good anyway.

Light, sorry but, you're going to get hugs in here anyway. We are a huggy group and give them freely. So...hugs!
Glad you have fun even though you are alone. I would hate being alone.
You always have us, but you know that already.

Fin, Oh...my...God! That Children Of The Sea cover song is awesome!!!!!!!!! That was when Black Sabbath had Ronnie James Dio as the singer! Wow, she was most impressive! Loved the other vid you shared as well.

Sheye, I agree that Fin doesn't have to be in prime condition to post, or anyone else for that matter.

Thank you for inspiring words and the positive picture. I just have to say, i have never felt so welcome anywhere as i feel here at the shed. So many fine people here. It helps me to build a better view of humanity in general.

Now i am a couple of days early with this one but here it is:

I don’t know how to change font color but this is just an imaginary story for you.

FIN OF THE RINGS

So, there lives this elderly gentleman in my apartment building. He seems harmless, but in my mind, I call him “Grumpy”. I think, under the surface, he is a fine human being but he has this strange, almost awkward expression on his face. Always. I think he is somewhat “beaten up by life”.

I was just chilling at my laptop, youtube videos and complete wasting of time. And then my doorbell rang. 90% of times I will not open the door. My mom and my friends inform me if they are coming over, and I don’t need Jesus or a vacuum cleaner. This time, for some unknown reason, I went to my door and opened it. It was Grumpy. He asked me “Can I come in for a brief moment, I have something important to tell you” I was somehow surprised by the whole incident, and evaluated the situation in a matter of seconds. A small, fragile old man, if he starts to cause harm, I can escort him back out without hurting him. So I said “step right inside, glad I just cleaned up my place a bit. You want dark-roast coffee?” He did not. He just wanted a talk.

So Grumpy sat on my sofa and I sat on the floor on a pillow. Grumpy started to state what was on his mind. “Listen, young man. I have grown old, weary and fragile. Now, this might be hard to swallow but I have a magical ring and I have decided you to hold it in the future. My time is done”

My thoughts was “ok, dementia onset or alzheimers” Then Grumpy put his hand under his shirt, picked up a necklace and a large golden ring was attached to it. He removed it, and put it on my hand. I said ok, I am impressed, but we hardly greet each other in the hallway. Why me? What is this ring? What is the story behind it?

The story behind it goes back for centuries. I will go straight to the bottom line. It will grant you every wish you want. So I thought “what the heck” and put it on my finger. Then I said “I want a huge barrel of cold beer and a clean pint” Then Grumpy said “Look behind you” and there it was. Many gallons of quality import beer and a clean pint. Then I said ****. I filled my pint, drank super gulps and tried to collect my thoughts.

Ok man, if this is how this works I am going to a full blastoff. I have wishes, believe me, I have wishes. Still drinking beer, not to get wasted but just to calm my nerves in a surreal situation. Ok then, next I want immediate world peace and a cheeseburger. And a girlfriend who can tolerate me. And money, not too much because it would ruin me but 500 euros would be good. All wishes were granted. I checked the news, wars had stopped. I got overwhelmed. I drank that import beer and Grumpy said, you were the chosen one. My time is about to end. You will find the next holder of the ring when the time comes, you will know it by instinct and by heart.

I was like ok… So Grumpy, you don’t want anything in return? Have I just sold my soul to the devil? Will this corrupt me? “Calm down. It will turn out good” said grumpy and took his walking stick and stood up and left. I was absolutely like WTF and thought this beer is needed now. I drank I drank I drank and I drank. Passed out. Woke up in the morning. **** This was just a dream. A good dream of course but I wished it was true. Beer was gone. There was no cheeseburger. No girl. News were full of wars and rumors of wars. I thought oh well, dreams are strange sometimes. Better take out the trash and go buy some cigarettes.

And who I meet in my home yard? Grumpy! No grumpy face, just an accepting and goodwilling smile. And just as I walked by him, I noticed a necklace on him, with a golden ring attached to it….

...I was in Sydney for nearly 2 weeks dealing with the sudden death and funeral of my Mother.
Back home now ( always good to get home ) and getting n with it...


Aw Dave, I'm so sorry mate. I had no idea.
I've been there myself, so I know what it's like.

Safe journey to your mum.

********

I was asking if you'd seen the Scotland v Aus match because it was probably the best game I've ever seen!
Both teams REALLY going for it, full-on attack, fast-paced action, loads of tries (and a fine Scottish win!)

I haven't seen much of the Rugby League, it does seem brutal! but I'm not so big a fan of the start-stop-start-stop nature of that game.

Thanks mate ...

Kudos to the gutsy Scotsmen, the highlights showed some brutal skirmishes.

The best rugby team won on the day.

Bravo !

Hi Fins,
That tale was awesome!
Very nice "casual" flow to it - like we were all really there watching a real event!

If you want to change the color of text - you can highlight it, copy it and hit the text color box drop-down menu (at the top left of the post you are writing) then select which color you want and paste the text into the text window.....
BUT - THAT sounds REALLY COMPLICATED!!! ROFL

So, what I do is type [COLOR=Teal] (all LOWER CASE letters) before the text you want to color and [/COLOR] (all LOWER CASE again) after it.
(You can see the list of available colors when you hit the text color drop-down button.)

Have a play with it here in the shed!

G

Hey Dave - thanks!

I believe that we Scots are maybe finally getting the hang of it!
Hope we can keep it up for the 6 nations (in 10 weeks).

It would be good to see some more competition.

Having said that, after visiting NZ ... the Rugby culture is insane !

The All Blacks will be benchmarks for quite some time.

Good luck ! 😎
