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. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

T is for Two - Schleich Cats

As we are in the middle of the Schleich show reports we might as well get these two out of the Laptop's doldrums and off to their permanent home in the 'S' dongle!

This chap (or chapess) has been waiting for a while now, bought on a whim and I thought I'd already blogged him (or her), but I don't seem to have, apologies if IT looks familiar, while the photo's are here, the cat has long-since been buried in the box with the other felines!

Bog-standard grey tabby, and while the stripes are not terribly realistic for a tabby, you get those mackerel-striped grey ones from time to time and it passes muster as one of those, if anything the tail markings should be darker, while the face is very well-done and quite expressive.

This one on the other hand is a recent purchase for my mother, who has a thing for ginger tabbies. Last time I looked it was standing guard in the kitchen on top of a wooden coffee barrel.

That's it - couple of cats - both current - from Schleich
