Hmmm it's a dish best served cold.

Scenario;

A flooded field somewhere in Italy - night is falling and so is the horizontal rain and the gale. A poor bedraggled creature taps on the the door of the the officer's mess and squeaks a request to be given entry and shelter from the miserable elements. There is the sounds of clinking glasses, witty banter ( yeah right) and the aroma of fine cigars emanating from within. The request caused a pause in the proceedings, to consider the request and it is shortly answered in a manner that Bacon and Shakespeare would have approved of.

'Sod off and drown soggy!'

So excitometer now 6!

I'm currently running at about 6-7. still got a few props to complete and paint but should have everything ready to go by Wednesday. Sorted my personal kit last night so the exitement is definitely rising.

I think I will throw the EZ-up gazebo into the van, just in case

We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."

Mostly packed, just some last minute bits to do. We are planning on taking the whole of Friday to drive down but calling into at Bovington on the way. Discovered I've only got two mags which work in my rifle, better to find out now I suppose.

Call it a 6, it will increase once I've got through the next couple of miserable days at work.

Fingers crossed about the weather.

Currently not registering anything, but I am now starting to sort my kit (and the whole of the bloomin' kit room, it feels like). I predict that the Excitometer will be automatically start once I get going.

Probably about a 5 as I'm looking forward to this but haven't really started packing yet.

I might be tempted to do the same actually since I've never been. I'm staying in Southampton Thursday night so will have plenty of time to spare.

EEEEEEEP!!! Now where's that bottle of Kaolin and Morphine!

Tied to a gun carriage ? One normally has to pay good money for that! Nerdely i looked it up to refresh my memory - it was abolished in 1923! More likely I'd get 'The Hill'.
