I was intending to come over for Cold Wars and another ACW road trip, like I did in 2015, but I have had to cancel due to a very slow recovery from knee surgery. On the bright side, I retired today.

Lots of people were very friendly and kind to me last time, so I just want to wish you all a great Cold Wars. Happy gaming. Hopefully, I'll see you at Fall In or the next Cold Wars.

Congrats on the retirement!! May you have many years of enjoyment.

As for the knee – at least it's healing. Cold Wars will be there next year waiting for you.

Congrats on your retirement! Hope your knee heals up fast, take care.

What? Give up coming to Cold Wars because of a lousy knee??? I've known grown men who've bitten their own leg off to get there! I'm _very_ disappointed in you, Andy!
But truthfully, sorry you can't make it. Things look like they are on the upswing, lots of vendors, and the mood seems to be building. Fall-In, perhaps?

I'll miss seeing you, assuming I make it. I have a wrinkle to iron out first.

Recover soon and I look forward to your next trip.

Congrats on the retirement! I have another 4 Cold Wars to go after this one before I can call it quits and really enjoy life!

I have 12 HMGS east coast cons until my ultimate liberation. In 2 weeks it'll be 11. That's of course unless Monopoly Millionaires Club comes thru instead.

Best wishes for a swift recovery and for your retirement.

Thank you for your kind responses. I'm 53 now, so, hopefully, I am going to have plenty of time for gaming before senility sets in.
