This past Christmas my father nearly died. My company brought me home as quick as they could. He is recovering but could possibly be headed for a nursing home. So now for family reasons I have left my semi-truck and fortunatley was able to return to the corporate world.

Which means I'm home everyday and off on weekends! Which means it's time to puruse such noble and honorable activities as the glorification of war in miniature! So diplomatic packages will be going out shortly and a resumption of hostilities between the Duchy of Saxe-Huack and it's heathen enemies shall commence immediately!

Anyway I am most glad to be back among you all again and I look forward to catching up on the latest news from 18th century fictional Europe.

I'm sorry about the necessity for your return . . . let us hope for the best where your Dad's health is concerned.

"The Real World™” is too often harsh on us...

Gaming -and merely toying with ideas and designs- in a very unrealistic Lace Wars Europe is a form of escapism, that can bring some respite once the realities relax their grasp a little.

Best wishes,

Very sorry to hear about your dad's health. I'm sure many of us on the list know the difficulty of the nursing home decision. But it is good to have you back to gaming, if for sad reasons.

Yes, good to have you back even if the impetus was you father's health.
Best wishes to all!

So sorry to read such news has pulled you from your truck!

Glad that you have some time to share with all of us here though.

Perhaps you will partake in a proxy battle or three!
