This weekend was my birthday, and despite the lingo the kids uses theses days, it was not off the hook. It was a nice relaxing weekend, however.
My kids were insistent on getting me a "monster" cake and my wife decided to use a bakery and may not be in the middle of nowhere, but it was close. We loaded up the family unit and took a nice leisurely drive, resulting in a birthday cake, two sleeping children, and the weekly trip to the grocery store completed.
After a delicious dinner with components of chicken, potatoes, hot sauce, and bacon, the monster cake was unveiled and I got an accompanying monster card to go with it.
My wife, ever doubtful of her ability to get me anything sort of gift, scored on two fronts. First was a rhubarb pie... no strawberry. The overpowering tartness will keep me going all week long. She also got me a gift card to Michael's which will allow me to restock my paints and brushes to prepare for the paintapalooza which will occur shortly.
Sunday was a "single dad" game, and after a marginal breakfast at our local stop, I simply let the kids run wild in the front yard as I perused miniatures on the iPad, and finally got through episode 5 of Masks on Cthulhu on Parade. Can't wait to get time for episode 6. but somebody should have died a horrible death in that episode.
In the evening I finally began to reorganize my minis closet at the end of the hall and had a little helper in her Cold Wars night shirt. I now know just how many figures (and chickens) can fit on one of my ships.

There are plenty of people who went to Salute and posted plenty of cool pics and beautiful set-ups. Only two pics thus far have elicited a serious level of excitement, both coming from www.shedwars.blogspot.com .
