Yup, they were probably playing Nintendo DS. DS has two screens (one of them is a touch screen). Remember the old Game Boy that was like the size of a VHS tape?

LoL. Nintendo came out...oh, about two or three years before I was born. There's a game store in La Crosse that sells old and new games and systems (plus they'll order off the internet if they don't have it)...I felt old seeing the old grey boxy Nintendo and the gold plated Zelda games...but it was awesome!

Anybody remember Pong, first game for Atari. Two paddles and a ball, that was it. We played that back in the stone age. Ha Ha.

We bought Pong for the kids. It was $75 back in the mid 70's. Lots of money then. Our neice thought we were rich because we had one. That game was so state of the art, and now so primitive.

Yup!!! I get the "3 Headed" look from my kids when I tell them about the "Good Ol' Atari Days"!!! This is of course followed by the "Man Mom, You're OLD!!! & then I've lost their attention to the PSP, Xbox 360, DS, Game Cube, or whatever the flavor of the day is at that particular moment. (My #2 Daughter is on a first name basis with the owner of the local EB Games store... It's HER money... Mine goes into what else?? More fabric!!) :lol:

$75?! Some of the newer games (espessily for PS3 and some for the XBox 360) are running for $60...I thought THAT was bad.

Kids nowadays...can't appreciate the classic games.

Your #2 daughter and I have something in common. Okay, the employees at the GameStop store I go to don't know me on a first name basis, but I've gone there so many times with my boyfriend that I'm surprised they don't know our names. Although, I know most of the people who work in the electronics department at our Wal-Mart.

:lol: :lol: :lol: They probably do know your names, they're just respecting your anonymity!!! By your avatar, I wondered if you are a gamer (or at least love one dearly).

The games I play now are... Why didn't Block A fit correctly with Block B, & the "challenge level" is Do I REALLY HAVE to rip it out, or will it "quilt out"? :lol: (Pure Laziness... Iknow!!) :roll:

Carla, did you do that quilt in your avatar? I love those, but I get so sleepy doing only one color, so I have to take a break, well, actually, a lot of breaks.

Guilty. Yes, Ma'am, I did it. I love doing heirloom quilting, but you are right, same on same does require MANY breaks to keep your eyes from crossing permanently. That one is white on white satin... can you say BLINDING???? The center stipple is so micro I kept getting dizzy trying to keep up with where it was going. But, when it comes down to it, I'd still rather quilt the sandwich than piece the top.

Maybe one day I'll hit the lottery & I can quit my day job to become a professional machine quilter. (Dear Hubby reminds me I would have to actually buy a ticket to even have a chance first.) :lol:

I hand quilt, and I, too, enjoy the quilting more than the piecing. It soothes me to see how the pieces interact. I am stressed by trying to decide if they look good together. I want someone else to do that. :shock: This is me, stressed.
