Well it is June 19, which means that I'm another year older.
My darling wife did get me three gaming-related books . . . well, okay, I ordered them for her to give to me some time back . . . but I'd forgotten what they were.
Two were "Colonial". Winston Churchill's "The Story of the Malakand Field Force" and Byron Farwell's "Armies of the Raj". The other was for one of my "hopefully some time in the future" projects . . . "The English Civil War" by Peter Young and Richard Holmes.
So all-in-all I am well pleased . . . now if only I could regain the good health I had in my youth . . . *sigh* . . . but I haven't figured out how to undo birthdays.
