Well, Happy belated New Year.
Upcoming conventions –
Battlefields, Livonia, Michigan, March 7
Cold Wars, Lancaster, PA, March 13-15
In less cheery news, my adult daughter Cory – who used to get drug along to numerous conventions 25-30 years ago – has recently been diagnosed with cancer at age 42. Diagnosis is stage 4 colon cancer. Low survival rate. She lives in Fort Worth, Tx, so 1100 miles from me. Horrid news.
One of her friends in Ft. Worth started a Go Fund Me page for her. She’s the breadwinner in the family. While her insurances cover the medical aspects and she has decent savings and investments, any contributions are thankfully and prayerfully accepted.
