It's My Birthday

Yes, strange as it may seem, I was actually born at 6:48 am PWT on June 19, 1948 in Carmel, California . . . so anyone who wants to draw my natal chart can now do so (although I've no idea of why you'd want to do so).

My dear wife did gift me with a few wargaming related items (okay, she asked me to order a few for myself and have them sent to her -- which I do much earlier in the year so that I don't remember everything and they can come as a surprise).

I got four DVD titles of note -- the first three of which are "Colonial" in nature:
  • "Khartoum"
  • "The Man Who Would Be King"
  • "Zulu Dawn" (yes, I already have "Zulu")
  • "The Civil War", a film by Ken Burns (actually 6 DVDs)
I also got a number of non-wargaming books and "Flames in the Punjab", a radical variant of "The Sword and the Flame" covering the Sikh Wars of the 1840s.

And tonight we will be going out to dinner . . . so turning 63 isn't all that bad.

  1. Happy birthday! Probably should have a glass of port to celebrate!

  2. Happy Happy Joy Joy!

    The Ken Burns series is magnificent!

    I have a Civil War in photographs book around here somewhere...

    Have a great birdthay Jeff!

    We will sent you happy energy from the beach today.

  3. Happy Birthday Jeff! and many more to come. Zulu Dawn is just the stuff for campaign inspiration as in the Man Who would be King.

  4. Happy birthday, Jeff! And many more, with lots of wargaming goodness.

  5. Belated happy returns.

    The man who would be king - that is indeed a fine movie :-)
