I am back from a very special vacation - Dennis Dodel was willing to open his gameroom to a few of us traveling to Wayne Neyens' 100th birthday celebration!
I had an excellent time and discuss some of the games and what makes them special.
Thank you Dennis!
Next, I traveled to Wayne's home to help him ring in his 100th year and discuss some of what made that special event so extremely special to me.
Thank you Wayne, for being such an amazing man - you are an inspiration, and I am so honored and humbled to have been one of the people cheering you on at your party.
