I didn't sleep well last night. I've been looking forward to today and yet dreading it for at least a year. Today is my official Day of No Return - I am no longer able to rescind my retirement papers. I've had the Kansas song Point of Know Return going through my head for days no - seems like my official soundtrack ;)
First, I want to thank each of you, the readers of The Tavern. You support over the years and especially the last year have helped keep the fires burning, the drinks flowing and the posts coming. I can't thank you enough.
The main challenge with being retired at the ripe old age of nearly 50 (happens 2 days before #ConManKen's Kickstarter fiascos are due) is being busy enough that Rach doesn't get any ideas about me working some square badge security gig to keep me busy. So far, I've been doing okay.
As you can guess, The Tavern is a huge time sink. Multiple posts per day don't happen on their own. Further work on SWL, the Torchlight mag, some random side projects and such keep me busy. They don't really make me much income, but that is what the pension is for.
That being said, I am truly grateful to everyone that uses my affiliate links when making purchases at RPGNow and Amazon as well as clicking on the ads that interest you. It really does help. The budget is tighter than I was used to while working but the little extra income goes further than you might think.
Thank you for joining me on this amazing ride.
Remember, The Tenkar's Tavern Facebook Community is the backwater dive of the OSR, with your bartender Poo Poo Face (thank you Ken for finding such an amazing moniker for me) 1,590 members and growing. Grow with us :)
