AN OLDIE RETIRED
Well, I finally did it. I broke down and bought me a new playstation2 game machine. My philosophy is If ya got a good horse ride it but don't break it down. I'm not one to change things too much if all is working well. I know I am more than just a little behind on all the new technology but what the heck. Way back in 1988 I was in a beautiful relationship with a wonderful lady who had 2 darling little girls when I met her. I absolutely adored and still do those 2 girls. They were so beautiful and I loved them with all my heart. And I'm so thankful that today they both are grown and married with families of their own. And even tho I dont get to see them very often since they both live in another state I do keep in touch.Anyway back in 1988 I bought them a Ninento 8bit game console.I remember we had so much fun trying to save the Princess in the Mario Bros. game. As a matter of fact I played it more than they did.So at the time I bought another one of the consoles to have a t my house. Well after my relationship with the girls mother came to an end and I had no one to play Mario with me I kept the game console and bought some sports games to play on it. It served me well during the years I was a "bachelor" again and I kept it even after I met and married my sweet wife in 1995. All these years she would ask me why I didnt get a newer game machine and I always said I was gonna get a new one some day. But the years kept racing by and still I kept the old game and played it quite often. I would even pull out the old Mario Bros game every once in a while and save the Princess just for old times sake. And I never failed to think about those 2 wonderful "little" girls Rina and Renee while I was playing that particuliar game. I suppose that hundred dollars I spent on the original Ninento was one of the best investments I have ever made. As I put in away in a box with all the games the other night it was kinda like burying an old friend. And I do reckon that one of these days I will get it out and play some more just to remember all the good times of the past.And it still works as good as it did on the day I bought it. And yeah, I admit the new Playstation and the games are a lot better graphics and more real but I can only hope I get half as much fun from it as I did my Nintendo. And I sometimes wonder what the girls ever did with the one I bought them.Just call me a dinosaur if you want but sometimes I wonder if newer is really better than a golden oldie.Happy gaming to all of you.
