I know that my handful of readers have gotten used to my regularly irregular posting schedule. For disappointing you these last few weeks, I apologize. I have been pretty much underground with no Internet access. However, that time spent underground has provided me with the funds to compete in that most noble of all cardosphere challenges – Gint-A-Cuffs! Since I’m running out of time to submit my entry, I’m going to make a blizzard of posts over the next few hours to get all of my points scanned and accounted for. Here’s hoping I can top the magnificent Bearded One’s total of 347 points.
