For review, 2016 was not a great year and that is leaving politics out of it. It start bad for me when I not only lost my mother but the family turned to the black sheep of the fold and ask, "so you are going to take care of the funeral and arranagements?" After working with the church, mom was RC and I am Jewish, just don't tell the priest, volunteering family members to help and many visits with the attorney it came off successfully. But personally my gaming and personal time did not start to recover until late summer.
I will only add that the blog, miniatures and the readers have been a refuge from any family darkness and I thank you. I even averaged over one blog post fo week, not to bad.
Thank yo for being here, and welcome 2017, now if I could only figure out why I have so my hits coming from Russia, but there I am not alone.
