Perhaps due to the excessive heat, the once-a-month beloved shindig of modeling, gaming, fraternizing, eating and drinking, watching DVD war movies, and swapping "fish" stories*, meeting in the Hall of multitudinous historical, alternative history, fantasy, and scifi gaming was dried up just like a cracked farm creek bed at the height of a summer heat wave. Where did all of the cool fresh bubbling gamers and modelers go? [Hmmm...this just might become an assignment for retired Capt, Zeelow, Testudinus the mage flying turtle, Pixel Bob the 1st Class Image Eraser Detective, and a new sentient soon to receive the hand of fellowship into the madness and the mania of the JME family.

That being said, I was able to rendezvous in the Hall, after a very long long time of absentia, with an old hobby enthusiast of the tenth-power. This brother assembles military plastic models faster than I can recline into an easy chair and fall into a bottomless sleep. Yesterday he was constructing a 1/72 ACE military tank vehicle kit of post WWII, in-between telling me, with a Cheshire cat grin, how he would be present next month at the 2019 International Plastic Modelers' Society USA Nationals in Chattanooga Tennessee with some of his 1000 + collection of war vehicles. BTW, his modeling skills have won him high honors in past times at the convention.
