Enjoying an early morning mug of Starbuck's (I know, I know) dark Christmas blend at the moment. following a haircut for the Young Master and myself later this morning, I've got final grades to tally and enter for the semester just ended. With any luck, that will be finished by supper, and then there are some gifts to wrap this evening.
In the meantime, you can observe the situation after Move One in the Raid on Fickmuhlen currently being fought between Greg Horne and yours truly. We are using Greg's collection of vintage Spencer Smiths and playing via email although Greg is sending me short digital video updates as well. The game is a variation of Sawmill Village with both forces attempting to take and hold the village. My troops are in the foreground with General von Tschatschke himself attempting to get a table at the local tavern The Elector's Arms from where he can direct the battle while imbibing some of the local ale. Shades of Inspector Morse you know.
