Played Pathfinder this morning for the first time since early spring this year. Fun stuff. I'm playing a goblin pyromaniac aka sorceror with bloodline The Phoenix. The two other players are playing a catfolk cleric & a kitsune gunslinger. We are playing the Mwangi school of magic Adventure Path. It was a short session, but one player had to leave early, so the GM just called it for the game. We will play the Saturdays we don't play my Witchlight game.

 

Cold this morning thou, like 35 to 40 degrees with a strong wind so going to the game store was a bit of a hassle this morning.

Been a busy day here.

Nevada Day is officially the 31st of October but the Holiday Day was yesterday and the Nevada Day Parade today.

Railroad Museum hauled out the Joe Douglass, our small [as in circa 10 ton small] Porter 0-4-2 Steam Locomotive and it was the center-piece of our Parade Entry.

The museum has a goose-neck  flat bed trailer and a five ton truck for moving the smaller and lighter pieces of equipment, and the J.D. is a nice fit for the trailer with the truck big enough to pull the load.

We hang banners on the sides of the trailer to advertise Santa Train, every December Weekend before Christmas,  Volunteers  walk the route and hand out small candies to all the kids and flyers for the Museum for the adults, promoting Santa Train.  We put boxes full of extra candy on the bed of the truck and have other Volunteers refilling the candy buckets all the while.

I stand at the front of the bed and wave to everybody in my full "Santa" uniform.  Walking from side to side and waving all the while.

Radio estimates there were 10,000 plus people there for the parade, and both my arms are sore from waving from start to end.

There was one parade viewer in a full [and very well executed] Krampus Costume, I made naughty motions at him/her/whatever as we went past.

Lots of people in costume, and quite a few were adults, with Skeletons being a very popular choice.

Leaving home this morning at 8:00 the thermometer in the truck was reading 25 deg., and it didn't start going up until I was nearly into Carson City.  The Canadian Geese put in their first appearance this morning as well.  By Parade Time the temps were above 40 deg.but we had a steady breeze so it didn't feel at all warm.  Kick off time for the parade is 10:00, as we were Unit 52 we were rolling by quarter after.  They have announcers with prepared scripts for each unit about every 500 yards so most of the parade goers have a running commentary for the entire parade, which starts at Hwy 50 on the North Side of Town and runs all the way to the traffic circle on the south side of town, a couple of miles with the entire route lined four to six deep with smiling and waving people.

Home safe now and having some nice warm soup for lunch, with sourdough toast.

Husband wants to get the Muppet's Christmas Carol Funko Pops and set them up like a Christmas village. I do not oppose this.

 

The Muppet Christmas Carol is the best version of A Christmas Carol.  Not just the best movie version, either.  It is a more impressive work of art than the original story.  That and The Nightmare Before Christmas are the two greatest Christmas movies ever.

Got to hang out with some people tonight. We had some food, talked about life and the events of the world, and then played ZOMBIES!!! I almost had to beg to play it, as no one wants to play it, except during spooky season, which means I've only been able to play it a few times over the years. But, a good time was had by all, and we're looking to have a game night once a month. Fingers crossed it happens.

I need to get BD a 'Zilla when she gets her first Barbie. ::):

Her Barbie won't be a fashion doll, she will be an ACTION FIGURE!

 

Ooh, Barbie Croft, Lara's cousin. :lol:

 

 

 

 

In the 70's there was this:

Maybe you can find it on the evilbay?

I guess there must be something similar now.

During the 70's this was a bold move and it didn't work out that well unfortunately.

Unsure what reaction symbol to use. 

 

Yeah, unsure myself. Just passing along odd and random things here.

 

Wife calculated that she's making about five hats each movie she's been watching online. She's watching about three movies a day. The hat situation is a little out of control.
