After my look at the great free Wargame title Irregular Magazine I struck up a conversation with Dave Barker from the mag and after a chat I offered to write an article for the summer edition (yes, I talk myself into all kinds of things!). But to my credit when I learned the theme of the issue was to be ‘Mysteries of the East’ it gave me a chance to make use of my knowledge of Japan and Japanese culture. So I put forward an idea and it was accepted!
More on this when its time but my good friend Sam Croes has agreed to create a piece of art for use with the article. And what is the article…well did you know that in the 23rd century all disputes in Japan are settled by the use of giant robotic sumo? I shall say no more.
Ten Good Deeds
Good deeds are their own reward and that is the case for my good lady wife. But I feel the need for more, the need to sing her praises. For you see she cares greatly for not only her own family but for the welfare of others too. This care is shown many ways with her volunteering at the local school and nursery and playgroup whenever help is needed and also raising funds for charity but what impresses me most is her insistence in giving blood.
The Scottish Blood Transfusion Service comes to Girvan every now and again and my good lady is always near the front of the que. This is despite not being able to donate for several years due to being pregnant and being a new mother too three times in the last decade. She donated last night and came home with a little certificate and badge that you can see above. She did not want a fuss to be made but I insisted and here we are.
Love you! :-)
