We spent much of the day discussing dreams, teaching, the passers-by, and old days of superhero gaming…his fellow, "Man of Iron", my own miniMAX and realizing that we have total blanks for the majority of the other characters in the games. (We remember Ray's NPCs, Kathleen's PCs... but the Wus and Tony are sort of invisible to memory.) We went down a list... FOCUS, Z-Squad, Mercenaries, Paladin Station, the 60's game. Topic of Tony came up, someone I've not given a thought to in a number of years. Silver Hammer was the only guy we could remember of his at all. Overall, I think FOCUS was the most memorable of the social game-times.
I got home, and it turned out my Brother's Hand was very swollen... he was bitten by something, It seems. He had to go to the ER, put on an antibiotic IV, and have minor surgery to correct / drain / disinfect it. He’s now wrapped in a large bandage and a palm-brace, His antibiotic 'scrip cost over $100, ... I think it'd be cheaper for me if I bought and paid for his insurance. He seems to be doing well now, thank goodness, and the scar from his last tumble is barely visible anymore.
