"I think nothing else helped so much to lessen the strain for all of us." I bet! :-)

A Quote for Tax Day

"It's income tax time again, Americans: time to gather up those receipts, get out those tax forms, sharpen up that pencil, and stab yourself in the aorta." ~Dave Barry

Happy Eastertide (and damn those orks!)

Obviously I haven't posted for a time. (Monday in Holy Week seems like months ago!) The good news, of course, is "Christ is Risen!" (If you want to read a great poem from John Updike, check this out: Seven Stanzas at Easter.)

Anyway, about those orks.... In an earlier post ( see here ) I shared how my command of ork forces was a disaster. Well, during Dylan's Easter Vacation he commanded the orks and I took the reigns of the Warriors of Gondor. Different game, same result! Dylan won. The orks were victorious and dear old dad hangs his head in shame for letting Boromir meet such an inglorious end.

Hope lives eternal, however. Onward to victory!
