The Armorers Domain

SWWBO, She Who Will Be Obeyed and who is also my wife, is a saint. She's not a neatnik, thank heaven!

She indulges me. In ways that make most of the male readers here green with envy.


Just as an example, lets take a look at the space just above my head in the Inner Sanctum of Castle Argghhh! The Server Room, wherein rests most of the computational power of the Castle, and from where most of the drivel currently inhabiting your screen in generated.

This is *just* the area above the cat perch which straddles the monitor. There are 8 shelves in this room...

...and they all look like this, differing only in details.

No wonder she blogs from her laptop in the bedroom!

The book titles you can puzzle out for yourself. The stuff in front, from left to right are... handmade glass egg paperweight, gift from an excellent friend, the Gerlach sqeezebore round featured here, a shootable scale model 1841 12 pounder Moutain Howitzer awaiting a carriage, a bunker with a PAK 40 on it, the french Modele 1915 time fuze featured here, the pin fire and 6mm Longue rounds I discussed yesterday arrayed in front of the round for a french WWI pneumatic mortar, a toy german WWI 75mm gun, a sectioned 12 pdr Parrot shrapnel shell (seen many times on these pages), which resides in front of a Boer War-era painting of British Mounted Infantry charging - painted on a piece of wood from a period ammo crate, ending with another toy WWI howitzer. The painting will eventually find itself near the Boer Mauser decorating the Bar of Argghhh!

I knew you wanted to know. All the shelves in that room are like that, filled with whatever has recently caught my interest or is not on display in the Armory.
