Thursday Minion reporting in

It seems that I'm not the only one for whom February is dragging. Hopefully all will kick out of the hump doldrums soon! I am not suffering so much from the doldrums as Real World responsibilities. Embarrassingly it wasn't just the Flu, but also full blown shingles that laid me up for a week and half. I'm still itchy, but the body aches and pain have devolved to tolerable levels. The Contagion passed last week just in time for military training. I thought I could catch up on comments, but my new rank has new responsibilities and more commitment.
I assure all I did review all the excellent eyecandy (my favorite part of the AHPC)
I'm also mostly over the crushing of my ego too. Shingles is for older guys, not young at heart and active infantry dudes who are.... (sigh) close to 50.
The only hobby I've been active in is "whack-a-mole" research on Pinterest for 7YW uniforms. Thankfully I've been at the brushes since work ended Tuesday!
I will hope that the rest of the crew perks up as we do have a way to go!
Let's see what the Thursday crew can whip up, as my mailbox is being pinged with waiting posts!
For starters we have a few posts from Simon that I missed last week while traveling. We also have a wonderful post from Mark with a tutorial. I'm pretty certain that Peter, Padre, and a few others will chime in before too long as well. 
I'll be at the brushes till then! ;)

    1. Thanks, Tamsin. I told my wife I suspect the blankets were tainted by Anglos, but she didn't find that theory as funny as I do! ;)

  2. Bummer on the shingles David, hope you're doing better. Getting older sucks but it sure beats the alternatives.

    I'll have another SYW post later today.
