    I finally got a chance to get to the PO Box yesterday and retrieved a cluster of postcards from you Rogues. Owen and Mussolini both had multiple submissions, the immortal Peppy sent in a wargame, and I sent one from my recent trip to Canada.

    Lots of Rogue field report goodness will be uploaded over the weekend.

    I sent a Christmas card too. Got it yet? Actually I sent it twice. The first time I forgot to put the bunker number on it. Your mailman must be a stickler for detail. I hate Postal Nazi's, geez.

    I did send you a Private Message on this A-58, and following up here in case you missed that.

    I mentioned previously that Chicago's postal service is garbage. Delivery to my home is never sure, and I often get mail addressed to other people or businesses. The address I provide is a P.O. Box, so odds are better, but nothing is certain with mail in Cook County.

    My wife informed me that we did get the Christmas card. It seems it arrived rather late as you were forced to send it twice by our postal overlords. It was on the mantle as it was a two panel Christmas card, but I can add it to the mix of you like.

    That'll be fine. Add it to the mix!

    Sometimes I get a bit carried away with the Christmas spirit when I'm doing the Christmas cards.

    seems the links to the postcard images have broken in the move to the new software.
    or is it me?

    The links are indeed broken. I'll repair them when I have a chance.

    The image links to the postcards broke during the move to this new XenForo forum software. I've now repaired all the broken image links and added another contribution from TD-Tommy776.

    Nice to see the postcards again.
    Have also been able to edit in the musket firing demo photo from Bunker Hill.

    Yes, nice to see these.

    I'll have to find a chance to send some to Otto if I can. I live in Chicago and even work at the same company as he, so nothing new will be brought to the table unless I travel. Unfortunately, gun ranges, strip joints, and bars tend not to sell postcards.
