Since I started blogging, I feel I have made some On-line friends, which is good and fun and something I enjoy very much. Leaving comments on people's blogs, reading the replies, and receiving comments in return is especially gratifying. And more to the point, one of the main reasons for doing this in the first place was to build something of a community around this fun hobby we share, and to interact with other fun people. A quick Thank You to everyone who makes this possible.
"My Captain My Captain"But on a special note: As I've said in previous posts, BrianW is my Age of Sail mentor and runs a blog about sailing ships. I have received a very nice package from him the other day that brought a smile and a laugh to me and my family.
I was going to wait until I had somewhere nice to put it so I can post a picture, but I'm very distracted with other family stuff right now (nothing bad) and don't know when I'll be able to do so; But I didn't want to go too long without acknowledging this fun (and touching) gift.
Thank you My Captain!
I'm enjoying our On-line friendship.
Congratulations on your well-deserved award. Calmness under friendly fire is an admirable trait.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jon, friendly fire is a good term for it. Repairs are underway. 😀Delete
Well done indeed Stew and I couldn't agree more with your comments about the community of blogging wargamers and the gratitude that comments on posts really do generate for those who take the time to post. I know that I really enjoy them and love to always reply to their compliments.ReplyDelete

Well deserved under the circumstances. Lovely & thoughtful effort.ReplyDelete
And very thematic! 😀Delete
Nice gesture, how's the refit going? Almost done I guess, in national specific rat lines, I'm sure!ReplyDelete
It was pretty cool.ReplyDelete
Refit is Underway and I am taking the opportunity to do the French rigging correctly, 😀. As well as adding a pennant to all the ships just to be extra snazzy.
Remaining calm and collected under fire is the sign of a good commander. I had young girls once too. Love the blog.ReplyDelete
