I'm still having saving issues.  The game will shut down to the desktop or get caught in an endless loop when I try to save. Not always but often enough to be frustrating.  Mason and Ripley have both died but a screwy save game gave them more life.  They still are kicking in my game. I guess they took the reprieve seriously. I've lost countless birthdays (including the boys aging to teen last night), births and everything in between. 

I did get to see something funny, though.  After Mason's "death" I saw this...

This happened the day after the boys turned child.  I got a kick out of it.  Then I saved and boom!  Oh well, at least I got these pics!

Updating to Windows 7

I'm finally moving from XP to Windows 7.  It's going to require a clean install.  I'm transferring everything I need and can to a portable disk drive and I'm going to run this on Saturday.  If all goes well, it will take a while to re-install all my programs.  I'll be able to use my laptop to chat but no play time for me until everything is cleared away.

To all my blogger friends and acquaintances, it's time for me to say goodbye. I'll be cancelling ALL blogger services as well as my grandpa gmail account.

I've enjoyed sharing and spending time with you. Sadly, for me anyway, it's time to move on. Happy simming and storytelling (blogging).

PiB, Please unplug me from this "Sims 3 group blog". Thanks! don

Macy has been chosen as a featured creation.  I'm really surprised and pleased.  Maybe this will lead to more downloads for her.  Yay for my redhead!
