A Large Infusion to the Stollenian Warchest. . .
Payment for a lengthy translation, completed last summer, arrived finally mid-afternoon today. It's reasonably large as these things go, and I'm allocating it to fund future, and as yet unimagined, figure purchases for the Grand Duchy of Stollen project. Very likely more Minden and Fife&Drum stuff, which is simply too tempting to resist. For the time being, though, I'm squirreling away these funds and forgetting about them since there is already a respectably sized pile of unpainted lead in Zum Stollenkeller. Best to see to those before I go crazy ordering new stuff. However, the Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus II and Hives are enjoying clay pipes of the finest Virginia tobacco this evening, along with drams of something medicinal, in celebration of this windfall.
