Ouch! It is the Big Six Oh --

That's right, today (June 19) makes me 60 years old. Boy, how time flies. It barely seems like yesterday that I was a child . . . now I'm only childish (well, at least sometimes).

I've got a present or two to open later . . . clothes, I suspect, since my dear bride doesn't really know what sort of toy soldiers I need (well, okay, want rather than need). So I'll have to order those on my own. I should have done it earlier, but I've been busy.

Maybe today I'll order something . . . hmmm . . . what to get?

A belated Happy Birthday Jeff. May there be many more to come. Enjoy yourself.

I'm with Groucho Marx on this - "Age is not a particularly intresting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough."

So enjoy your day and treat yourself.

Happy birthday, hope you find just the right thing to buy for yourself.

I have the big 5-0 coming up soon; so I must also think of a suitable pile of metal to order.

Hi Jeff,

With regards to your "what to get?" question, how about some more 18th century RSM troops? Greg Horne features some nice looking figures fresh from the painting table at his Duchy of Alzheim blog.

Best Regards,

Gen Coors was briefly comment upon on the emperor vs elector site. Gen Coors was so dispondent that his Grenadier Brigade failed to advance for more than three hours, he offered his resignation. The Reich Duke would have none of it!
Although the greanadiers played no active part in the battle, their mere presence scared the Prussians. We expect valiant service from Grenarla Coors and his grenadiers as the campaign progresses,
Best regards, Wilhelm
