April Shenanigans

Theo wanted a poppy to "Remember the soldiers"
on this special centennial ANZAC Day.
April is nearly over and I've been remiss about posting things to the blog. This is mostly due to the fact that I'm still sorting out a new hobby schedule around the new job and a slightly more active 3yr old...

At any rate, I thought I didn't have much to report, but when I flicked through my phone's pictures for hobby-related stuff, I was surprised there was actually quite a lot. Over the past few weeks I've had some FoW games, several Saga matches, tried out Netrunner, bought a new Warmachine army, expanded my X-Wing collection, and even got a neato Lego set for my birthday.

Also, before we get started, I just wanted to mark the passing of the 100-year anniversary of the landings at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. Here in New Zealand and Australia we hold annual memorial services on that day commemorating ANZAC Day. Like Veteran's and Memorial Days in the US, it's meant to be a time to acknowledge the sacrifices of those who have gone before us. It has been very moving to see NZ remember, and I am honored to have witnessed it.

Lest we forget.
