Wow, A new year already. It has been quite a year for me. So much has happened. I want to walk you through a few highlights.
I originally joined Twitch on June 2, 2015. I joined because I was playing, World of Warcraft and you needed a Twitch account so that you could add mods. To the game. ( Wow is the reason I strongly dislike using mods. ) I became an affiliate on October 21, 2022. I have been streaming long before that. I don’t remember when.. but it was really casual and I did it when I only playing World of Warcraft. I think one time I streamed a Facebook game. It was a riot.
I am very happy with my experiences so far. I am not here to make money. I am always at my computer, and not talking to anyone. Twitch.tv gives me a way to be more social. I have met so many people and made some solid friendships. I find myself playing games with other people. It is nice not just to play games alone. Although personally, I love being alone. but being with friends makes it more interesting.

I found an interesting website that tracks me. So embarrassing. Look here. If you are a stats kinda person. Remember, I am not looking for praise. I just love streaming.
If you want to know when I go live, you can visit my Twitter account or my Facebook Page. Or just join Twitch.tv and they will notify you any way you want. If you need help just ask.
TRIPS AWAY HOME
I went to North Bay to visit my daughter Sarah for a month. It was a long time. I infected her and Carl with covid. It was wonderful because I am old I think it hit me really hard. I think if I ever get sick again. I would love for my daughter to be there, she made it almost pleasant. Sorry I got you both sick too.
I also visited and saw my best friend Ricardos new home in Napanee. It is nice to see him putting down roots and setting into a new life and future. It is a lovely home, and he should be proud. I am of him, and enjoyed my visit there, and look forward to having many more. HOW ON EARTH, WILL HAVE TIME TO CUT HIS LAWN???!!
I spent a few car trips with Paul and enjoyed a few hotels and talks until we both fell asleep laughing. What a guy.
I got to visit my sister-in-laws this year. I haven’t seen those lovely ladies in a few decades, I hope to see each other more in the future. Thank you Debbie for having me spend the night at your beautiful home. I will always be grateful.
My daughter Raisa got married. It was a wonderful backyard wedding, it was small and very intimate. Close Family and friends. I met everyone that mean a lot to the happy couple. I took this photo of my grandson during the wedding, He is always making me smile.
It was the highlight of my year. I will always cherish the memories we made. The weather was beautiful, and the food (vegan ) it catered and delicious. The newlyweds were gorgeous and so happy. I would officially welcome my new son-in-law ( Tom ) to our family. You have been around and loved for years but now you are legally forced to call us family. I saw you sign the papers.
Celebrated turning 53
I am happy to be this old but I have noticed a few things different with me. I can’t force myself to sleep in anymore. I wake up, every day regardless of when I go to bed, 6.5 to 7 hours later. Wide awake, also with the help of Ralph making me pay attention to him, either by staring at me, biting me, or jumpin’ on me all this weight. Once I move or talk to Google. I love you, Google Mini! Then there are my body aches. Especially, when I injured my knee back in 2020 Sometimes, I can bearly walk, and I always wondered why old people ( I am one now. ) complained about their knees. Now I know.
My eyes are and have been failing for a while now. I have been using reading glasses for so long. Now, when I watch TV, the screen has to be kinda close to me. So I can see it. When I go for walks, I am so blurry that I get dizzy and have to sit down or just look at the sidewalk. This sucks.
I had a root canal done, and lost a tooth. It was the most painful thing I ever felt, I would never wish that type of pain on anyone, ever! I found out that ODSP does not cover, bridges or crowns, the rather pull your teeth than pay for the repairs. I could get the work down for about 1000 bucks for each tooth. I need 3 done. With the amount they give me, I would never be able to afford it. The good news is that I can get false teeth when I lose them all. Yay me.
My friend Paul’s Death
Paul was my friend for over 20 Plus yrs. We talked almost every day, and went on trips together, he died on October 31st, 2022. It still feels like a kick in the gusts when I think of him, or see a picture of him. I am still very upset about this loss. It is so hard to talk about it. I loved the man more than I was (am ) willing to admit. It is a tough loss and I don’t think I will get over it. I miss you, Paul.
This is the picture that showed up on my phone whenever he called, to tell me about his day or his latest drywall job.
We always talked for hours and laughed our heads off almost every day. He once told me I had a great sense of ha ha.
Well, there are a lot of things that happened over the year, but these are just some of the highlights. I should blog more, and I will there are a few more things to add to this already long post. I will post when I can.
I hope you all had a great year in 2022, and I hope that you will have an even better one in 2023.
