(500) Reasons to be Cheerful....1, 2, 3....

I had hoped to be able to produce more pictures of my newly painted ACW ships (which should have been finished for the most part last night) or even an update on my continuing and evolving thoughts on my Balkans project. I also cannot bring any new insights into my Napoleonic Command and Colours plans; nor the sci-fi ideas currently in the project planner - OGRE, Battletech, VSF and various others. The Minifigs ships, Memoir 44 and Battle Cry, 20mm Vietnam, scale undecided French Foreign Legion and WW1 Arab Revolt (with apologies to T.E. Lawrence) not to mention the planned scratch build of some 16th century galleys and a serious look at the wars of the late Roman republic - these all have little if any news to pass on.

It is a big list of projects, ideas, dreams even - but it is a list that I have happily enjoyed scribbling about and even more important, that people have enjoyed sharing with me - usually with many helpful hints and nudges along the way which I have always greatly appreciated.

The reason for this post then? Today sees my 500th blog post and that is for me, 500 reasons to be cheerful. I am quite sure I have enough ramblings to fill another 500 and so I plan to be around for some time to come - you have been warned!

Many thanks to all though, for getting me this far.

PS Is it me or does Ian Dury look very much like Dexter?

He actually does, good work on 500 posts though.

To paraphase the Proclaimers badly:

You have walked 500 posts, and I hope to read (at least) 500 more!

Hmmm....that sounded a lot more witty in my head...

Hi Bob,

Many thanks old chap - your comments and support has been invaluable for the first 500!

All the best,

Hi Angry,

Cheers old boy! I hope you will stick around for the next 500!

I am glad you agreed about Dexter - I was beginning to think it was just my imagination!

All the best,

Hi Paul,

Good effort and I accept the thought with the spirit it was intended...!

All the best,
