Toy soldier blogs come, and toy soldiers blogs go, but the GD of S blog celebrates its eleventh year in 2017! The Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus II invites you to drop by his realm. . . somewhere just to the northeast of Frederick's Prussia. . . sometime during the mid-18th Century.
Well, darn it! There is a much anticipated lull in the reading and course prep this weekend, and I was so looking forward to some uninterrupted soldier painting. And what do you think happened? Yep, I woke up with a cold and slight fever this morning and had to miss not one, but two Friday events, a meeting and a professional development seminar. Not deathly ill, mind you, but I don't feel like doing a darn thing. Even picking up a paintbrush seems less that exciting at the moment. Blah. -- Stokes
