I went to meet my Mom and sister Judy at the casino today. This is a pretty common thing: every couple of weeks they come to the Langley Cascades Casino where Irene and I join them for brunch. But this day was to be a day for resolving a mystery. For a week or so, Judy had been telling me that I had to come this Sunday since she had something for me from Shane.
My nephew Shane is a cool guy. In ancient times, he and I both played Dungeons and Dragons- not together, unfortunately, since we were a twelve hour drive apart by car. We both occasionally remember the “good old days” of adventuring with pen and paper. For whatever reason, Shane saw this T-Shirt, thought of me, and got it for me.
I love it! Not many people would understand what it means, but for me, it brings back many fond memories. Thanks, Shane!

I love the other one on the site: “Jesus saves … and only takes half damage.”
Ahh, as long as they are still making novelty T shirts pen and paper RPG is not dead 😀
Heheh 🙂 Yeah, I saw that one too, and did you notice that the art on that shirt was done by Erol Otus? I am pretty sure that Otus was the guy who did a ton of artwork for the early D&D/AD&D books and modules. On the down side, that “Jesus Saves” T-shirt is one shirt I would probably get in trouble for wearing at work- our diversity rules are pretty specific about avoiding anything with religious connotations.
