It's Almost Time

...for Sock Wars III to begin!  This is my first (and probably only) attempt to play an assassin game.  It will be fun to see how long I can stay alive.  For the past week, I have been mulling over which technique to use- weighing the advantages/disadvantages of each.  DPNs, wood or metal? Two circulars/one or two socks?  One circular/two at a time?  Too many choices for my little brain to process.  The whole thing kicks off tomorrow at 12PM GMT...which is very early in the morning here in the foothills above Pasadena.  I plan to get to bed early tonight..and wake up by 4 AM, shower, don my official warrior garb, print out my marching orders and CAST ON. Greg has promised strong, home roasted coffee to provide the needed jump start.  Spookie is involved, too-providing moral support. 

Speaking of Spookie, it appears that he has added a new element to his morning routine.  If the garage (Greg's workshop & coffee roasting factory) is open, Spookie surveys it first and then jumps up on the hood of my car to check out the mid-yard area.  Yes, there are now many paw prints decorating my very white hood. He is truly master of all he surveys....
