Last Wednesday the wife and I headed across the state to the city of Taylor. Our eldest boy and his girlfriend have bought their first home and the furnace/air conditioning has failed. So I went to replace the blower motor and control board. She went to help clean and organize in preparation for their big move. And we both went to check the place out. I think it’ll be a good home for them, but all I see are projects. Projects that need to be done, projects that I’d want to do, and projects that would make the place more livable. They’re not particularly handy, but I suspect that will change pretty rapidly. Owning a home can be awfully expensive and forcing yourself to do the work can keep the costs down. Congratulations to them both.
Saturday we were on the road again. Once again crossing the state, though this time headed to Orion Twp. and a birthday party for our niece. She’s four and her mother is a week away from giving her a brother. It was a good time. I mean tacos, hotdogs, and cake, how could it not be a good time.
Sunday, I had a list of outside chores to do, but it rained on and off all day. So, instead, I did laundry and worked on my Adventure project. I spent a lot of time on it, but I’m not sure how much I actually got done. It was that kind of day. But there was a big announcement coming from the other side of the state…
No details have been forthcoming, but the announcement was made this past weekend that one of the most anticipated game conventions in the Midwest will be back this year. DougCon ’22 will be held October 21-23, 2022. I’m looking forward to it. It was a lot of fun last year.
DougCon is traditionally focused on board games, but I may put together a short D&D scenario if there is any interest. I’m thinking a small 5-room dungeon with pregenerated characters and a clear goal. Could be doable in a short block of time. It’s something to think about.
