a 'pause' for the blog...

For all three of you who follow my blog, I will have a bit of a break for a month or so as vacation preparations, and events out of town have or will limit any blog entries.

I will note, however, my disappointment at the ill-timed closure of the National Army Museum in Chelsea, London, England as of the end of this month and exactly one week before arrival in London on my vacation! For a military buff as myself that is a major disappointment and much akin to the mournful despair of the devout Roman Catholic priest finding out St Peter's will be closed during his only possible visit to the Vatican!
My wife however is in quiet glee no doubt knowing it is one less boring museum she must endure.....

Anyway, I will hopefully return with a full report on the "Enfilade" convention in Washington State for the end of May.



  1. Hi,
    I found the Army museum in Chelsea to be more interesting than the Imperial War museum to be honest. This was 16 odd years ago though but shame to hear it is closing.

    Enjoy your holiday !


    1. Thanks. I was hoping to reprise my visit before my marriage some 25 years ago. (Really?!! THAT long ago?!! ) I seem to remember enjoying it.

  2. Been years since I was at the Imperial War Museum but it keeps changing the themed area so it could well be worth the visit. I enjoyed my visit

    Enjoy your break


    1. Thanks for the suggestion. With only a few days in London, I picked my one spot and all the other sites with the wife [ Buckingham Palace, The Tower, Kensington, Harrods (!) have the plate full with interesting history nonetheless for such Queen-bearing money 'colonials' as ourselves.

  3. Oops, Sorry I missed this post, Doug. I'm the THIRD guy! :) Dean
