Your First Game
I recently had the pleasure to talk to a fella who is new to miniature gaming and was planning to run his first game of Gutshot with his wife and kids. We had a little pow wow and I gave him some advice that I thought was worth repeating here.

Forum Maintenance: We ran them varments outta town!
Just to let ya'll know, I ran some maintenance on the Forums tonight and deleted a lot of bogus and inactive accounts. All in all, probably more than 2,000 accounts were deleted (some of them were in the "pending" file that you guys can't see). If we accidentally cut you, read the rest of the story for tips on how to create a new account that won't get yuh shot fer looking sneaky.

Mitchell's Internet Problems

UPDATE: 06/23/2009
Comcast did some repairs yesterday and that seems to have fixed my Internet connection. Here's hoping it stays up and running.

A change in our holiday plans
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that I will, in fact, be here this week. My wife’s aunt died in the wee hours of Saturday morning. Her aunt had been ill for quite a while and, at 82, this wasn’t entirely unexpected. Still, it was a shock but my wife, Donna, is handling it well. This was definitely her favorite aunt, and we’ll be helping the family deal with things for a few days. We've canceled the cruise and will be in town, but we have decided to keep Hawgleg closed for business so we can focus on family and take a bit of a vacation near the end of the week. You see, my wife had saved up all her vacation days through the year so she could take a nice, long cruise and since she can’t save the days for next year, we’re going to do a few touristy things around Houston.

Bushwhacked, but still standing
Howdy folks! I just wanted to drop ya'll a quick note so yuh won't worry none. Ya see, that danged leg infection of mine has flared up again (you may recall -- it's put me in the hospital twice before). This time we caught it early so I'm able to stay at home, but muh doctor has ordered me to rest and keep it elevated, which means I can't spend much time online. So, for the next week or so, I won't be able to respond to e-mails or forum questions quite as fast as I normally do. Thanks in advance for yer patience!
