A little bit of drool

So today I went into town and helped Will spend some money in a very scary shop.
Scary because what do I see the moment I walk into the shop ... oh yeah .. the 800mm Canon lens.

Even got to have a play with it..... drool..
One day in the future I'll walk out of the shop carrying her ... one day 

Now back to reality, looking forward to some gaming tomorrow.

Christmas drool list

So what on your Christmas drool list this year,
Well my, “I've got all the money in the world list” starts of course with the mighty 800mm Canon lens, followed my more camera gear.

Then the wife slaps me and I come back to reality
So to my more likely to get list starting with more expansions for the LCG Call a Cthulhu and Net Runner. I've really been enjoying both games , mainly playing my wife and losing more that I win. But that beats the crap they seem to be trying to pass off as T.V. shows at the moment.

Some more RC Tank Toy goodness is high on my list, planning on getting a couple of tanks setup with the infrared battle system so we can have some larger scale battles, move of the table top and onto the driveway and backyards.
As for miniatures, there has to be the Girls with swords, I mean who can go past that ... or the new Nurse's since we have started playing Malifux again. Going on what I’ve seen of the new plastic series these sculpts will be fantastic, if not insanely hard to put together, but that’s half the fun.

There are also some good reports on a few new book out that I’m keen to read, by Cherie Priest
Fiddlehead and The Inexplicables are two I haven't gotten to yet.
The steam punk theme is a favourite and the audio books of the series so far have been awesome.

Then there is the never ending stack of possible board games, miniatures and additions to all the other games I play, oh yeah and of course I cant forget the liquid of life …. Scotch , there is always room for more scotch in my life.  Roll on Christmas I say.
Now the other thing I’m currently trying to get working is the lighbox feature of blogger working with Live Writer which I use to do my posts. So here's a monkey test #2

Mixed Bag

So today's post is a complete mixed bag, starting with a couple of shots of a helicopter doing aerial crop dusting (from what I could tell) over the hill next my my house when I got home tonight It looked like the guys who was doing it was having fun with all the sharp turns, and he wasn't mucking about on the speed front either.

Then here is my last set of shots from Sunday at Ardmore. I couldn't resists playing around with Photoshop filters on a few of them.
