We have company. To be exact, our child-by-late-adoption (as in he was grown and married. Also, he has parents, but he acts so much like our kids we decided he was 3rd son,) his wife and practice-grandchildren are spending time with us. This means I spent the last six hours in the kitchen, talking, which is why this is so late.
I also didn’t feel like writing a post. So I thought I’d put up from pictures from the visit to Portugal’s military museum. Keep in mind most of the pictures didn’t come out very … clearly, and though I have notes, we don’t always have the sign with the thing, so it’s not as informative (and it’s more challenging) than intended. However, I thought it might amuse you if I posted some of them.
Unfortunately NONE of the miniature pictures came out
UPDATE: Okay, I am an idiot. As I was lamenting that I hadn’t got most pictures, including the Lewis Gun, I realized that I was looking in the wrong folder. Mwahahahahahahahha!
Also, btw, the Portuguese originals were made at the Fabrica do braco de prata. (Factory of the silver arm.” THERE will be some supernatural explanation for this. (Oh, and dad got me 3 books called “legends of Porto.” (Actually “weird Porto” but…) Yes, there will be snippets of Grant goes to Portugal as soon as I’m marginally more organized. I figure house won’t be DONE till December, but I need it to the point I can CLEAN.) The first Lewis is the one I got to fondle. 🙂
The miniatures are just a few to see the extent of it. One of the miniature displays are one of the fictional battles of Conan the Barbarian. I mean, I’m sure Larry Correia could spend three days at the museum JUST looking at the miniatures 😉
