I Have To See A Man About A Horse

That phrase was my grandfather’s favorite euphemism for having to go to the bathroom. It’s funny what you remember. But this time I really do want to talk about horses.

Brave Adventurers

Today, I saw a post about someone finding a wonderful new gaming table. He talked about how it would be perfect and that it was just a bit bigger than what he had been using, but my first impression was that it was really little. Maybe I’m just spoiled with the monster 4′ x 8′ table that I’ve grown accustomed to. But then his small table reminded me of a particular game, many years ago, that we played on an even smaller table.

Welcome Back!

I hope everyone had a wonderful time at Gary Con. I am so jealous. Wish I could have been with you. But instead I got a lot done around the house. Not nearly as much as I had hoped, but I still made some amazing progress. Best of all, I got rid of that nagging voice in my head telling me that I should be working on chores and household projects. Now I feel free to re-focus on my gaming!

Taking a Short Vacation

Since everyone is busy getting ready for GaryCon next week, I doubt anyone will really notice I’m gone. I’ve decided to take a shot at getting some long-term projects finished up around here. I just can’t waste this beautiful weather, and when the weather fades I have tons of things indoors to do as well. It’s hard to get the motivation up, so when it appears I have to take advantage of it.

Donations Gladly Accepted

It has come to my attention that some people enjoying making donations to blogs that they frequent. Really! I am terribly sorry for not having realized this sooner. By not providing a facility for you to show your support, I have deprived you, my dear readers, of the joy associated with such a philanthropic act.

I have taken steps to alleviate this oversight, and procured a “Donations” tab, which is now proudly displayed on the menu bar.

I hope you can forgive me for my grievous neglect. I’ve done what I can to make reparations.

Gary Gygax Posts

It must be Gary Gygax day. Today, I ran across two great posts about Gary on Google Plus. First, there was an old interview he did on Thunderstruck Fanzine. Then there was a great post linking a number of articles involving Gary. I have to say that I’ve really been enjoying G+ a lot more than I first expected I would. Finds like these are just part of the fun.
