You're still alittle kid, I graduated in '82.

Interesting year, I remember it fairly well, because that was the first year I was staff at a convention and we raided the hotel basement for "Old Coke, stored down there. the year after that was when I first bumped into 'furry'. I have bee contributing for a year to the APA Alarums and Excursions. I was working at staford Hospital doing contract security. and all of my weekend were taken u playing Champions.

In 1985 I was working as a wrangler on a dude ranch with 60 horses. That was also about the time I made the decision to enlist in the Army. A very good year. :)
