Thank you and good-by to FF5FJF2013

As I write this I see that $6,737.80 has been raised for Child's Play Charity. Six thousand, seven hundred, thirty eight dollars. And a whole lot of you had fun playing a great game - one of my favorite video games. I do not want to spoil all the fun statistics I will be putting together in the yearly image that I compile of all the neat stats but there were 2978 runs registered this year and 1215 of them were completed.

There were only 1238 runs last year.

There is so much more to say about the fiesta, and I will have to take some time to compose all of my thoughts more eloquently. However right now is time to say thank you and goodbye for now. Gilgabot is going to go to sleep for the time being. And I think I will too. Keeping the fiesta up and running is fun and exhausting. Checking through all the victory pictures, making sure things go smoothly - I love doing it but it is a tough love that feels like a job. A job I will miss until next June.

This is one of my favorite things that I do now. Thanks again.
