Welcome to this weeks Miniatures & Musings!
TIM’s Mid Week Miniature
Knuckleduster figures continue to dominate my backlog pile for now. There are more to be done but progress is being made in parallel with other little projects that I am working on. In fairness I do enjoy painting them and adding them to my collection so it is hardly a chore, just a simple desire to move a quality figure from the gloom of a cupboard to the light of day. Latest to make the move to the display case is “Lucky Lou”.
Well It Made Me Laugh …
Yesterday I bought my train ticket and entrance ticket for Salute 2020. Looking forward to it and spending money on all those “essential” items. The 18th April will come along quickly enough but for now I have time to sew extra pockets into my coat so I can smuggle my contraband passed She Who Must Be Obeyed when I get home. The alternative is to simply man-up but the last time I did that I found myself cooking my own dinner!
I should also point out that SWMBO also has a wart on her hand. Not one but two or three. She is understandably self conscious of these and has investigated many remedies but so far without success. I too am conscious of her warts. Conscious to the point where I am more convinced than ever that she is a witch. It cannot be a coincidence that I haven’t seen a newt or a toad in a while. These are dangerous times in the house of TIM.
This week TIM has been listening to …
Paolo Nutini and “Pencil Full of Lead”. There are plenty of jazz versions of this track but I prefer this one.
This week TIM has been watching …
“1917”. A trip to the cinema to see this Oscar nominated film with my mate. Enjoyable is never the right word to describe a war film, experience is probably more appropriate in these days where nothing is left to the imagination in a graphic portrayal. All in all an excellent film and well worthy of seeing. Not so sure about it being a potential Best Film winner but quite different from anything I have ever seen before in the way that is was filmed as one continuous sequence.
“Do Not Touch!”
Probably one of the scariest things to read in braille!
Until next time.
