I painted my 2,500th 6mm musket yesterday and finally snapped. In a fit of rage, I threw the entire unit against the basement wall. I said to myself, “Self, THAT felt REALLY good.” I then sought out the storage bins where I keep the finished figures, dumped them on the floor and proceeded to jump up and down on them. I felt very relieved, an obsession finished.

I think I’m going to watch more TV and maybe take up a less demanding hobby. I think I’ll knit with my wife.

Copy anything you want from the blog as I will take it down in a week to remove all traces of this hobby from my life.

Thanks for all the fish!

  1. I thikn the date on this one sort of gives it away?

    1. Thanks Alan, you’re the only one to comment. I guess after I put up the next post it should be obvious.

  2. Whew! For a second there I was going to suggest anger management or pot holder making. 2,500 figures sure makes for quite an accomplishment. ~Gary

    1. Actually, I just came up with that number out of the blue. I actually just passed 2000 this week. Just trying to have a little April Fools fun.
