I've been so busy with my wife's doctor and physical therapy appointments that I have not posted much to this blog over the last few weeks and that has probably hurt the Holiday 2013 Cancer Fund Drive some. Still we are only $17 from the first goal of $750. Assuming we hit it in the next day or two as I expect, I'll hold the drawing for the first 25 issues of White Dwarf magazine Thursday evening. Anyone donating by noon Thursday (CST) will be in this first drawing (assuming at least $17 more is raised). In addition, we will be drawing for a few steam keys (donated by Rod, one of the people on the "wait list" for an opening in my Sunday game), including a copy of Natural Selection 2.
My wife has her last doctor appointment this year tomorrow -- for another pain relief shot into her lower back. After that, I'll have more time for posts and Microlite81 work as Christmas this year is just my wife and I. She's not up to the 2 hour drive to see her mom and her mom can't drive down until she gets her second cataract removed (in January). So Christmas will not be a production this year -- which is good because she's not up to all the cooking that requires.
Anyhow, now is a great time to donate to the Holiday 2013 Cancer Fund Drive and get in on the first drawing. Click the link to see the large list of items being given to lucky donors in this drive.
The Holiday 2013 Cancer Fund Drive is on. Every $10 donated gives you one chance to win one or more of more than 40 non-TSR D&D items published in the late 1970s and early 1980s. You can see the complete list of giveaway items and read more about this fund drive in this post: Holiday 2013 Cancer Fund Drive (with lots of Third Party D&D Giveaway Items). This is in addition to the usual PDF downloads and other benefits of a donation to the RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund. All donations will be used to pay the property taxes on our house as we had to use the money saved for this to pay for more medical treatment for my wife's cancer and other medical problems treatment related bills (see the linked post above for more info), send a donation in any amount -- small or large -- to me via Paypal.Thank you!
We need to raise about $3400 by the end of January, as of this post this drive has raised $733. Thanks to everyone who donates, spreads the word, or thinks positive thoughts for us!
