Whoops! Weeks!

Anyhoo, I'm back in Texas for a bit to celebrate my dad's birthday. We think we all caught it during said celebration. My wife has it, and she was worried about its effects on the baby. Doctors don't seem worried. I feel cruddy, but mostly fine. Mom and dad got it too, so far they also seem fine. My sister also got it, and she's... Delicate. She's not doing well. We're a bit worried.

Yeah, so long as your wife isn't in the ICU on a ventilator, the baby will be fine. Given that she's caught it midway through pregnancy, the kiddo will likely have some immunity left when it enters this crazy world. Also, I feel like you didn't tell us you got married? Maybe you did, but it's slipped my mind? I am getting old these days. I turn 43 in a few more months.

I'm certain I mentioned it! I'll have to dig through the thread. Well, that was 2 years ago, and I'm very happy! And now, clearly, there's a little boy on the way. Naming kids is hard. :(

Well, my invitation must have gotten lost in the mail....



Congrats on both fronts!

The wife and I whittled our names down to two. Both of us vetoed several of each other's suggestions. It was either going to be Reilly Michael or Michael Spencer. (Michael is both my father and my first name). When the doctors pulled the little guy from the incision in my wife's abdomen, we decided right then and there he'd be Reilly Michael.

Names I liked, but the wife vetoed:

Graham
Gareth
Cailean
Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All

Getting back into paintball. Just ordered new gear to replace the expired or non functional equipment. Detrevni, I sent you a PM to see if you are still playing and in the area. 
Other than that, my wife and I have been taking a hip hop dance class for over a year. Itís a fun activity to do together.
Got a onewheel, which is a blast to ride on. Also helps keep my legs ready for snowboard season.

I've started training Muay Thai. Loving it so far. Gonna try to get a match in before I'm too old.

I've got boxes of paintball junk just sitting, and every time I look at em, I get kinda nostalgic. I might be willing to meet up somewhere!

I have never bought a flagship gun.... until recently. Proud owner of a PE LV2!

Got a old buddy back into the game and he's having a ball. Also got a kid (18) that I know from AA into the game. He's absolutely hooked and I just introduced him to speedball, he really wants to play snake haha. Now looking at visiting some SoCal fields (always wanted to go to SC Village) and might even head back east once it warms up.

I had to look up what that was. I feel old.

Next time I go to the field, I'll have to buy a new HPA tank and hope that my Invert Mini still works.

Speaking of old,I bought this documentary on the history of paintball. PM me if you want my Vimedo login info (that goes for anyone else) https://vimeo.com/ondemand/paintballhistory/408033245?autoplay=1 

Do it! Ninja took over the market share and has a good product.

I like the way this reads when taken out of context.

I had a kid. Well, more specifically my wife did. I really didn't do much.

No pics because I simply don't know how to host images these days, but Ray Thanon Glass was born 12-28-22, 12:16a, 19.5", 6lb. 9oz.

Yay!

Congratulations! That's awesome! Being a dad is awesome once you get past the unending tiredness that comes with a newborn. Good luck brother!

Nope. Hopefully he'll get a real Buick one day. A 1965 Skylark, even.

His grandpa DID promise to get him a John Deere pedal tractor though.
