Happy New Year 2016

Happy New Year Everyone

2015 has been a year of Ups and Downs for me.

I started with a 'Down' after an overnight trip to see an out-of-hours doctor as my stomach pains were really really bad.

Then there was an 'Up' as my youngest daughter got married.

Another sort of 'Down' as we had to postpone our annual trip to the Sunshine State.

A couple of  'Ups' followed as I had two good charity trading shows (Carronade and Claymore) which boosted the funds greatly.

To keep things in balance I had a really bad 'Down' with suspected Meningitis and then a little 'Down' with my gall bladder being removed.

I suppose the general trend is now 'Up' and I'm doing everything I can to keep it so.

My hope is that 2016 will be a year of many 'Ups' and no 'Downs'.

Happy New Year Everyone.

Here's a few pictures and some words in lieu of a status report.

I have a deadline coming up.

I am running a charity trade stand at the Leuchars Veterans Christmas Biggy on the 28th.

Apart from having to get up before I go to bed to travel half the way across Scotland to get to a working roadbridge before driving back again on the other side I am hoping to have a number of game specific goodies on sale.

The game is a version of Waterloo so I am rummaging through the 28mm plastic pile for suitable offerings. I have a few. I hope to have them ready in time hence the deadline.

None of these will apply.

And neither will this.

The hard part is pitching them at the right price.
