A care package, eye moisture and I'm coming back........again!

Ray has been nagging me about my blogging output this year and I was bitching about him not sending my goddaughters Christmas present from last year, so slackbladder says that he would be at the other Partizan and did I want anything, I initially ( after initial paralysis) said a couple of MDF bases and some basing material if he was feeling flush ( if you knew the old Ray this was funny).

Then a couple of days ago this arrived, a little battered and bruised.........


The top box contained the unpainted 28mm Trelawney's  Dumbarton's Regiment of Foot 1685 and after noticing the little hole I'm hoping the whole amount he sent too!


Speechless........


The air was quite dusty that day and some random air blown grit caused some moisture to accumulate in my ocular region, now a lot of you fellow bloggers and people who have met Ray have said what a bollox he is but finally he is a good sweet caring bollox!

Cheers Ray!

Now back to blogging (feeling a lot better) I continue with my 15mm modern and sci-fi work when I can but may post the odd movie or book review as caravan life permits..........

  1. Hello old chap!

    Welcome back! Ray was in fine form on Sunday although perhaps the shorts went a little far....

    Certainly before lunch in any event....

    All the best,

    DC

  7. Must be another Ray as I thought for a second you were talking of the infamous Ray of Don't throw a 1 blog who doesn't have a caring bone in his whole body....wait you are talking about him....like you I'm speechless!

    Welcome back good to hear from you again! Funnily enough I was asking about you will visiting Ray, Positie and the other rejects on holiday just a little while ago.

    2. I don't like the look of that box!! Hopefully the figures all survived intact and none fell out the box!

    Ray is a good bloke, though hardly anyone would believe it if we told them.

    3. Yes mate but I was there....at the door and I understand not letting everybody in, I wouldn't let me in either!

  21. Who are you and what have you done with Fran? And while I'm at it, what have you done with Ray??? ;-)

  22. This post makes me happy, glad to see you back in blogland! And to hear that, what I suspected all along is true - Ray is a good guy despite the rumours....

  23. At last the voice of reason has returned to the Rejects. I want to hear nothing about tricorns and lace, what Ray gets up to on the weekends is best not discussed on an open line.

    Welcome back mate, I look forward to the rise of "Franonia!" Remember you have friends in Klintanistan!

  28. That Ray is a good lad. Admittedly bit odd, but a very good lad.

    Wonderful to see you putting a boot in the stirrup, Old Boy. How about joining us for the Challenge this year?
