Hmmm. Day Thirteen. Considered an unlucky number by some. How should I break the superstition? Why, by showing a picture of me with the man himself, Larry Correia!
This is a group shot taken after the signing of everyone that went to dinner, minus a few who didn't want in. Yes, Larry really is that large and imposing of a man - I'm 6' tall, and he towers over me. It's a good thing he's such a nice guy, because I hear that even silver bullets don't phase him...
Ambulance Driver is trying to overtake me, and I can't say I blame him. He whipped me last year, and as a matter of pride, he wants to beat me two years in a row. I'm hoping that this year I can even the score, though, which is why I'm pulling out all the stops. I'm going to have a new incentive that I'll unveil on Monday, and my offer still stands. If there's a picture of me in a kilt you're dying to see, make me an offer. No pose is too big, no fee is too big. I really want to come in first this year, and I'm willing to go to extremes to do it.
Again, as a reminder, I'm going kilted as part of the Kilted to Kick Cancer campaign. I'm collecting donations for two groups that will help further cancer research and awareness, and am humbly asking for your donations to either of the following:
Prostate Cancer Foundation
To entice you to donate through me as opposed the other Kilted to Kick Cancer participants, I have a number of prizes assembled that are being "raffled" off - a custom bowie knife, a handmade Jayne hat, a custom Monster Hunter-themed sporran signed by Larry Correia, a custom AR-15 lower, a full set of signed Monster Hunter novels - and the chance to be immortalized in the next one; and a bee-oo-tee-full set of custom 1911 grips. That's a lot of great stuff, and all you have to do is make a tax-deductible donations to one of the linked charities through me to get a chance to win them!
I'd like to thank Michael W., Nancy R., Dragon Leatherworks, York Arms, Larry, and Mark for their extremely generous donations. I am floored by the generosity and kindness of my friends, and the lengths to which they will go to help in the fight against cancer - and help me out in the process. The gunnie community is the best there is, bar none, and I eagerly await the day the anti-freedom community gives back a tenth as much as we do.
Thanks to all who have donated; pleas to those that are thinking about donating; and as always, stay tuned for the next trick up my sleeve...
That is all.
