Stir Up Saturday – Writer’s Block

There were no posts five years ago.

Last week I took a look at the posts from last year.

What new thing can I reminisce on when the entire website is nostalgia-driven? I have no idea.

Maybe I’ll plant some seeds for a future SUS? It will certainly be interesting to look back five years from now. Hopefully.

I’m working from home; that won’t stick with me. It will hopefully be the time I spent with the boys. We’ve played some video games and VR, but those aren’t the best times. Our Lego challenges will definitely stick with me.

The times we were forced to be creative stick too. We saw a MLB player hitting Nerf darts. We wanted to do it too. But we quickly created a game because we are in baseball withdrawal.

The shooter became the pitcher. The defense called balls and strikes. And darts had to pass a certain distance for various hits. There were lots of strikeouts, but we had a lot of fun. My youngest and I lost to my oldest. He hit a two-run homer late and it was killer.

We’ve played a lot of board games too. I’d strongly suggest The Game of Wolf. My boys have be AMAZED how much useless knowledge is stuck in my head.

My youngest hopes the quarantine never ends. He hates school. This has been a dream come true for him. My oldest loves school. He’s not quite as in love with being home. He’s been working ahead with his school work because he never wants it to be late, plus he says it’s easy. He likes the challenge of working ahead and teaching himself.

What else will I want to remember in five years? Who knows. Things seem to change day by day.

I’ll probably remember some M.U.S.C.L.E.-related stuff too. Will you guys remember any M.U.S.C.L.E. stuff from the 2020 quarantine?

    I will remember a number of things including: empty store shelves, businesses with empty parking lots, lack of traffic, crazy eBay prices on a number of everyday items, using hand sanitizer ALOT, having my hours cut at work, trying to distance myself from strangers and family members. What I will cherish the most is spending more time with my wife and son that isn’t just on a weekend or vacation. Heck I’m an Atari and colleco guy..Never thought I would rock Halo!(with my sons help)

    If we are talking m.u.s.c.l.e. memory from 2020? Then here I go. I respect the university of m, although your students have no letter jackets with a big “M” on them. You have compiled massive amounts of info on m.u.s.c.l.e to educate the masses. Unfortunately at the same time, you damn those who (in you opinion) who List or sell a figure above your expectations. These figures are worth what buyers are willing to pay for them..not what you deem appropriate. Thanks, purple Mito

    I know you take breaks from time to time, but despite the occasional writers block, you put out an astounding amount of content. I’m always impressed with the volume.
