On FaceBook, I saw that Bret won, Phil placed second and three people tied for third.

You realize, Gary that some good old fashioned Tex Mex or Texas BBQ will take care of whatever ails you.

Thanks all for the well wishes.
I had a meeting with a committee from Virginia Tech Saturday morning. I was reading a bit and out of the blue I lost hearing in my right ear and the left side of my face started tingling then went numb. I thought it must be a stroke, but I had no other symptoms. I called my hospital and they told me to get to the emergency room or they would send an ambulance. I drove myself to a nearby clinic, but they didn't have the facilities to do the tests the doctor on call wanted to do so they called an ambulance and I was taken to the hospital. At the hospital they did an EKG, a Cat scan and two MRIs, one without contrast and one with. They found nothing wrong. The doctor said I had as healthy a heart as anyone they've seen of my age...so I have that going for me. But, was concerned that they could find nothing except a cyst near the part of the brain where senses are controlled. I'm headed to a neurologist on Monday, then a optolarygologist...or something like that right after.
Sorry I missed WO...again...I hope the scenarios I sent to Perry were able to see play.

All the best, Gary.
Saw a lot of play test scenarios played - I did two of them. There was a "Play test mini" of scenarios from the Hatten module. It looked like the typical WO crowd, lots of familiar faces. Left mid-afternoon on Saturday and I ended up 1-1 in published scenarios, 0-2 in the play tests. The play-tests were with Phil Palmer and The Doctor, Andy Hershey, and I also had games with Ross Zarzecki and John Dober. All fine fellows to roll dice at.
