Some Good Bedtime Reading!

Nothing much earth shattering happening in the Grand Duchy of Stollen today. The Grand Duchess Sonja has choral practice this evening, so. . . . I have four last horses to finish this evening before setting the 4th (Trakehner) Dragoons to one side for a couple of days. I'll probably fix the first batch of 24 RSM grenadiers to temporary painting bases afterwards. These little gems have absolutely NO flash to remove. Can't remember that I've ever had figures like that before!

On the literature front, I've got quite a bit to keep me busy -- Used copies of Donald Featherstone's War Game Campaigns (1970) and Advanced War Games (1969) arrived in the mail today from AbeBooks.Com. Terribly interesting they look too! Combined with the paperback anthology of Robert Louis Stevenson short stories (including "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde") that I picked up at the bookstore yesterday afternoon, well, I don't know how I'll get any sleep at all tonight!

RLS is a much under appreciated author I feel. His works capture emotions very well and have a dark side that you don't alays expect. He led an interesting life too and his biography makes interesting reading.
good luck with the Featherstone books as well.
