On Tuesday I drove to Michigan and had dinner with my niece Katie and her friend Rachel (who seems to have adopted me as a neo-uncle). We did the usual seafood thing, then stopped at a convenience store (where Katie wore the gorilla suit that Rachel keeps in her car; I LIKE these girls...) and spent another hour or so sitting in a local park. Many stories were told. Most of them were true. I later spent some time talking to brother Tim and wife Patti.
On Wednesday I took Katie to "breakfast" (noonish) and then drove to Indianapolis and crashed.
On Thursday I spent five hours selling games out of the Flying Buffalo booth, and then was a panelist at a "Meet Skirmisher" panel. There were eight people there who were associated with Skirmisher, and six others. Still, it was fun. I went swimming for about a half hour just before they closed the pool, and spent the time talking to a couple of guys from Finland. They had attended the San Diego ComiCon, then drove cross country to GenCon, and were flying home on Sunday. We talked games, of course...
