About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.

6 is for Christmas; Day six - Snowman . . .



. . . Number six!

Bit of a struggle getting it off the truck and finding room for it on the lawn. Gina stopped for coffee again; they were getting quite friendly . . .

===============================================================

A hollow styrene moulding in two parts, he needed a little mend to his broom, he looks cheap and was probably sold loose from the little bins in catering equipment shops as a generic? Just to prove me wrong he'll turn-up in a bag or blister now, you'll see! Seems to be a reversed copy of an old Gem or Festival moulding?
