For Father’s Day this year my wife gifted me a “Day of Lard”. We rented the clubhouse in our community and several friends and myself played some Too Fat Lardies games, ate great chow and drank great beer. We then headed to our house for dinner and some late evening What a Tanker.

Back in ’04 I stopped at the Army Ordnance Museum in Aberdeen, now relocating to Fort Lee. I’ve been migrating my photos to the cloud and stumbled on these today. The image should link to an album…should…
I’m going to try some giant monster gaming with my son and have started to gather a few of the combatants. The owner of my FLGS was kind enough to part with this collectible Godzilla. I glued some sand and scale railroad ballast to the base, then dry brushed it with some grays. More to come…
