Follow the life of Bob Nylund as he struggles with his addiction to alcohol for nearly 40 years before finally finding sobriety 35 years ago and counting. Bob describes his escapades as a young man, through his service in the Navy Seabees and beyond in a series of amusing tales, always with the dark cloud of alcohol abuse hanging overhead. By the young age of 20 Bob was hooked on golf and alcohol, thanks to a job at a country club and the availability of free drinks. Bob's issues with alcohol grew as did, unbelievably, his career and family. Through the hardships of accidents, illnesses and the tragic loss of a young daughter, Bob maintained his grip on alcohol. There were many years of binges, blackouts, detox and treatment centers. It took his daughter's wedding day ultimatum to help him decide he'd had enough. Bob finally found God and let go, letting Him, the LAST treatment center, several care groups and very good, caring friends help him to find sobriety and hold onto it tightly. So what about the golf? Bob golfed 1000 holes in 2012 at the age of 85 and repeated it the following year. At 89 he's still hitting the links. It is Bob's hope sharing his story will help others struggling with addiction and recovery to know they are never alone and there is always hope!
So you want to be a wizard? You know being a wizard is not all quests filled with high adventure, finding priceless treasure, warm adulation and reward, and uncovering newfound knowledge? You really want to be ensorcelled by fell magics, accosted by boisterous knights, enchanted by hostile magicians, waylaid by villainous rogues, attacked by creatures from the nether realms, cursed by dread warlocks, and worse? And those on some of your better days? Seriously? Are you crazy? If you are (crazy, not serious... serious is optional), then Mulogo is the wizard for you and Mulogo's Treatise on Wizardry is the guide you'll live by! Mulogo's Treatise on Wizardry provides a concise summary in plain (well, mostly plain) language for wizards who wish to have a manual for survival in a harsh world where people (and much nastier) want to kill you and take your stuff (usually in that order). With varied subject topics ranging from Allies and Whether to Buy Them, On Reducing Risk (and Capitalizing on the Failure of Others), Protecting Yourself From Yourself, How to Minimize the Curiosity of Others, and When Griffins Attack, Mulogo's Treatise on Wizardry will allow you to thrive... but first you have to survive. Hopefully you'll enjoy a few laughs along the way.1 Scribe's Notes: 1.Mulogo's Treatise on Wizardry is a largely farcical text making light of wizardly conventions within the larger fantasy, gaming, and roleplaying traditions, assorted related communities and offshoots, memes, and various cultural derivatives.2 2.If you do not like satire, or laughing, this book is not for you.3 3.Perhaps a more exciting tome like Navel Lint, Its Permutations and Harvesting would be more to your liking.4 4.Mulogo does not condone laughing.
