Surfin' USA...

Well we are finally having a summer here in England!  Better weather this week that most of the summer was, so this weekend will see barbeques and beer!  Oooooh Yeah!  Real Beach Boys weather!

A feature of the barbeque will be chili dogs, thanks to wReggie's inspiration.  I am going to look for some good German sausages for this and will probably make my own rolls.  Looking forward to it!

Had an extreme guitar dream last night - must get into a band once the dissertation is done.  I had a bass guitar that had built in synthesiser stuff, including a joy-stick that did all sorts of stuff to the sound and pitch of the notes I was playing.  I want that guitar!  Not that it exists.  Unless I just invented it.  In which case, maybe I should look into building the damn thing!

Meanwhile, I still have more figures to paint for the Robin Hood game as well as the next part of my Persian army - next in line are Indian chariots.  These are real monstrosities with 4 horses and 6 crew each!  Will post photos of these when they are done as they are really something.

So, have a great weekend - hope you get to relax with some beer and a chili dog or something - more next week!

We're finally having a Fall here... Leaves turning and temps dropping.

Very interesting guitar dream. Gibson has a new totally digital guitar, maybe you saw that one, invented a bass version in your dream, and added the joystick?

We'll be relaxing with no grains this weekend, but we'll be having PIZZA!

James - I wasn't aware of the Gibson, although I do remember varios Rolland and Korg guitar synths back in the 80s. Enjoy your weekend!

Nothing more American than a good Hot Dog. Enjoy.

Sounds like you will be having a very full, very enjoyable weekend. Have fun! We are going to have a warm weekend here too. I plan to spend some of it outside at a soccer game taking photos.

You had me at hot dogs and beer. Glad you are finally able to enjoy some decent weather for a bar-be-que and a cold beer.

The forecast on Thursday went, "Everywhere is going to have a brilliantly hot and sunny few days.. with the exception of The Isle of Man."

For once they got it right. Bummer.

wReggie - It was superb - thanks!

Terri - It was a great weekend - hope your photo shoot went well!

Agg79 - Can't beat the simple things...

Mandy - Hi! We did enjoy, thanks!

Shrinky - We often get that sort of thing inour little corner if England, where we often get the weather from France - everywhere else is hot and sunny, everywhere else get snow, etc, etc.
