Excitement thread!

Postby prideofengland » Mon Jul 21, 2014 2:41 pm

Too early for an Excitement thread? Nah. I have to say I am coming to the boil nicely. 2 lots off kit to prepare as well as 2 lots of guns to sort out and charge batteries for. So much to do, so little time cant wait. 6/10 and growing steadily :D

Excited? Maybe too strong a word for me, I'm not exactly shivering with antici.......pation. But I am looking forward to it.

First event excitement currently in-check - too busy sewing things to other things (hopefully in the right place) also learning to sew.
Wake up there, Muttley, you're dreaming again!
You're not Robin Hood and you're not Gunga Din.
You're not a brave knight or a king who's been crowned;
You're just plain old Muttley, the snickering hound!

Important kit polished and pulled-through. All the rest will have to wait until the weekend. :D

Waiting for a new spring to downgrade my Thompson. Bought a new set of webbing that I can happily Blanco to my hearts content; God-daughters are helping me with that on Friday when they come to stay. :good:

6/10.

Having watched a few videos online, really looking forward to having a look round the site.

I've read there's a memorial for those that served at RAF Grafton Underwood. Are we able to access it at all at any stage?

Probably only a 3 at the mo. Still seems a long way away & I've badges to stitch & blanco to reapply. Will rise rapidly next week though!

It's not on site but just up the road.

Excited, but a little worried as my car's starter motor packed up this morning - hope to be able to acquire a replacement and fit it before Friday.

Solid 8 now, though I was thinking how hot its going to be in BD, then I checked the weather and it seems were going to have authentic weather like June 7th 1944! :lol:
