Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
TIM’s Mid Week Miniature
This week we have one of the Hasselfree figures I chose not to use in my recent “Rats” diorama. A young lady who goes by the name Dakota.
Modelling Retirement Planning – Step 8
So this week we move to Step 8 and with only two more steps to follow we are nearing the end of what I hope you are finding a valuable resource either for now or at some point in the future. The image below provides an ideal introduction to this weeks step – Coffee Mornings.
As we can see from the above illustration, taken I am reliably informed from an original Paleolithic painting which is over 40,000 years old and can be found in the Franco-Cantabrian region of Western Europe, women have been talking for a very long time. In truth some never stop and it is this weakness that Step 8 aims to exploit to the modeller’s advantage.
Quite simply always encourage the wife to meet up with family and friends at every opportunity. Promote as much as possible the idea of Coffee Mornings. It really doesn’t matter whether these take place in or away from your home but the latter will add travel time which is clearly a bonus. Once you get a gaggle (collective noun?) of women together they will never stop but you can. You can stop whatever you were doing and simply start modelling or painting instead. Why should you work when they are not?
By my reckoning you should aim for two Coffee Mornings a week which potentially will give you anywhere between 2 and 16 hours of hobby time. Happy days!
Movie Special Effects
Maybe it’s because I consider myself a modeller but I can always tell when they use fake Dinosaurs in the movies.
This week TIM has been listening to …
“I Heard It Through The Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye.
Having recently been to the cinema (see below) I saw a trailer for Documentary/Movie about Motown. It inspired me to dig out a few classics and I decided there was nowhere better to start than here.
This week TIM has been watching …
Once Upon a Time In Hollywood starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Brad Pitt and the extremely hot Margot Robbie.
A midweek trip to the cinema with my son who was on a weeks holiday to see the 9th Tarantino movie. Probably not everyone’s cup of tea but we loved it and the 2 hours and 40 minutes flew by. Hopefully the DVD will be out for Christmas, my 93 year old father and 88 year old mother will enjoy it, they love a happy ending!
Until next time.
