I remember the user name but not much about them.  Does this relate to something I'm not catching onto?

I remember AndyDT.

If I have been peeing incorrectly for 44 years of my life without incident, I am just going to accept that it is too late for me to change my ways.

I stand as far back as I can, arc it up as high as I can, and go for the swish.   Shoes stay dry, I don't get the smell, and, well, if there's shrapnel, that's on you for taking the urinal right next to me and not leaving a courtesy space.

I'm totally joking, but being more serious, if I'm peeing in a place with a urinal, the odds are I'm not thrilled with taking a seat either, so I'm going to have to bring a protractor and a geometric calculator and plot the angles.   That's got to be less work than laying down paper and doing the hover.

In the summer of 2019, we went to San Diego. I took this picture in the men's room on the USS Midway.

Here is some DTF trivia for you (for those that remember him):

AndyDT was last active on April 02, 2013.

Damn, time flies.  8 years ago! Wow!

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

So

Ive told the story a few times about finding out that my biological father wasn't who I thought it was... And finding out that I have a half sister (all via Ancestry DNA).

Well I have a cousin on that side who messaged me last year basically asking who the fuck I was... Nicely of course. I finally responded.

We had a short conversation back and forth. Turns out she's my 1st cousin, and she doesn't know much about her dad's side of her family (the side in which we are related).

This whole conversation was via the Ancestry app. I wound up asking her what part of the country is was on, and if she was on FB (since the Ancestry app sucks.)

She responded with something vague about being in the west coast, and then it looks like she blocked me! (She does actually have Facebook. I looked her up....she's local and we have at least one mutual friend....)

Anways... I decided to say Fuck it and sent my sister a message. Now for the anxiety of waiting for a response. :JayOctavarium:

That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Crazy. My family has shown little interest in delving in to our ancestry, so none of that interests me. My dad didn't like his parents much growing up, and his siblings were foreign born, from a different mom, and moved to the US as adults, so he didn't grow up with them. A while ago he went through an exercise of writing down memories of his childhood and exploring his family's history. I guess it was rather painful for him so I've never asked him about it.

My mom only had one half-sister, who was much older, and while they were close, she kept me at a distance from her because her life was such a mess. Since my wedding in 2009, the only blood relatives I've seen in person are my parents and my sister.

News!

So either my cousin blocked and then unlocked me, or there was a glitch. Not sure... But not important.

Because...

My sister responded and then immediately added me on FB! She seems just as excited and just overall in awe as I am :JayOctavarium:

I guess my sister has been in the same boat as me. Trying to build up the courage to reach out. I just did it first. She seems to be just we overwhelmed by this (in a good way), as I am.

I also have a beautiful 10 year old Niece that I am just excited to eventually meet in person as I am my sister.

It's hard to explain how happy this makes me...

They even have my eyes! (At least I think so).

Know what is the worst of this earth? H Insurance companies.   My dad fell at my house when he got his second covid shot and broke his rib.  He did not knock to let me know I needed to help him to the bathroom. 

The insurance sends a questionnaire to see if the can charge someone else with the bill.

All the years my dad paid for insurance and they want to sneak the blame on others.

Insurance companies are the best ... until you need their service.  That youve prepaid them for!

We had good and bad experiences with out homeowner's insurance.


Many years ago, we had an addition put on our house. An agent came by to reassess it and spotted our trampoline in the backyard. We were told we'd have to get rid of it or we'd lose our insurance. We were gutted because my oldest son, who was young at the time, was struggling with balance issues, and it seemed to be helping him. We called around the secondary market, but it just didn't make sense for that price to keep it.

Then, about 4 years ago, or so, we were sued because of an online message my wife left regarding a service we received. Our homeowners paid for an attorney to represent us.

Always looking to pay less no matter how they do it.

Tim, I had my homeowner's insurance decline the mold in our bathroom because our hose that goes outside and landed on the floor above the bathroom causing the mold in our walls.   

So I pay all that insurance and not by my fault the installer years ago messed up caused the issue.  I fought for months and said fuck it.

Redid the whole bathroom in my own dime.

A few years ago, we had ice dams in the front of our house. Our insurance covered gutting the walls, drying them out, and rebuilding them.

Sent you a PM..

Nah ... not your thing - either of you.  Joe/Nick/Hef/Mason and I saw them at RoSfest 4 years ago, then again at Progstock with an even bigger group of DTFrs.

That's us, as well.   Mostly good, not perfect.  Interestingly, the one place they fell down most was also involving mold (in a basement).  We had a water leak that CAUSED the mold, and they wouldn't pay for it even though the policy only excluded damage CAUSED by mold (not mold caused by the damage they were otherwise covering).
