This is the 3rd and final portion of the giveaway. This one's for New Years. To enter just leave a New Years message naming a hope for the coming year. I'll keep this thread open until midnight PST, Dec. 31st. Looking forward to seeing your submissions.
I've got a number of hopes, but I'll share a frivolous one. I hope an iron meteorite just small enough not to cause any real damage (to my house, anyway) lands in the alley behind my yard. If so, I'll hack it up into chunks and share them around with y'all. Space swords are cool.
In the new year of 2019, I hope to finally take some well-deserved and much-needed vacation time. I wouldn't mind just staying home, and relaxing. My family has asked me to go on vacation with them, though. I kind of doubt I'll go so far afield, but Carcassonne, Madrid, and Vienna are really high on my dream destinations. Maybe NYC will have to do. In any case, I need a vacation!
For 2019 I hope to learn enough Spanish to communicate more efficiently with my groups of bilingual students to increase their success in school. Tired of seeing them be passed on with the thought that they don't matter as so many others have done to them!
For 2019, I hope for the best when it comes to family and loved ones,and to remember to take time to stop and look at the beauty and wonder of this world. this time of year I always reflect on how quickly it has went by, so I just want to enjoy every day as much as I can

By the end of 2019 I want to be able to run two miles in 15 and a half minutes, do 45 pushups in 2 minutes, do 60 pushups in 2 minutes, and be generally more in shape. Sword - wise, I want more 19th century sabres and I want my castille rapier to arrive. I'd also like to attend some HEMA tournaments and SCA events. I went to two last years and they were fun.
As to everyone else - have a good new years and a successful and fulfilling years' end and 2019.
For 2019 I hope to be able to keep working with my current team, and I hope my family has a good year for health. I also hope my friends and family find themselves in places that they'll be able to enjoy, and that my grandfather especially gets to enjoy his retirement facility more than he did this year.

RufusScorpius: Sounds like a great deal of fun, which I won't be enjoying any time soon. I'll have my shoulder in a sling for 6 weeks at least, then therapy for 4 or 5 months after. Maybe early fall I can get out camping or someting.

christain: No need for a rope swing there. There's one spot where there's a deep pool of crystal-clear water with a cliff to jump off. Little fish nibble your toes while you swim. It's literally like another world. Wonderful.

seth: Sounds great Christain. We used to do that when stationed in Florida. We'd canoe in the maze of the blackwater river--always find rope swings and such people had set up.

Ouroboros: Porch damnit.

christain: I plan on me and the wife going boating on the river at Beavers Bend, Oklahoma. You can float your cooler behind you and pull up on a sand bar and camp out. Great fun.

seth: yeah trying to plan summer camping trips now--I can't wait

RufusScorpius: Mmm, campfire, fresh fish, some 'taters gathered from the woods... paradise....

Brother Nathaniel: Don't camp too close to the forbidden forest! A word of advice brother.
Jan 18, 2021 10:12:35 GMT
christain: If I were still in my teen years, I'd be camped by a fire on the edge of my pond with lines in the water...hoping to catch breakfast. If not, then go foraging the woods for nuts and berries. Not the easiest, but you'll live.

christain: A campfire and a good bottle of Scotch sounds pretty on-time right now. But only if I have a waterproof tent. The weather here is as unpredictable as a new wife. Watch out for the forest Elves and Gnomes.
Jan 18, 2021 6:34:48 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: My old friend! Well... you will always be welcome for a spot at my campfire. I am preparing to brave the forest again for some more research.

christain: Hey, Rufus! Sorry I haven't been on in a while to chat. Just too busy with the holidays and suffering a few medical setbacks. It really bites getting old, but I can still perform. My wife may have a different opinion, but I'm referring to swordplay.

RufusScorpius: Oh, yes. "Real life" I played that game once. Outstanding graphics, but horrible game play.
Jan 17, 2021 13:33:58 GMT
nerdthenord: Howdy scorp. Just been kinda busy with real life.
Jan 16, 2021 14:44:23 GMT
RufusScorpius: Hey there Christain, Nord! Long time no see...
Jan 16, 2021 1:15:04 GMT
christain: What's up, LG! Have any new goodies to show us?
