I have been busy on eBay again.
Last week, my orders arrived, so I spent the weekend unpacking the crates and constructing my purchases.
I believe in being prepared for Christmas. I like to give Head Rambles Manor a welcoming ambience for my visitors, so I have decorated the estate and the house.
One of my orders was a bit of a gimmick, I must admit. It’s not often you will find razor wire decorated with beautiful blue LED bulbs, but it’s worth the money. I have decorated the chimney with that.
My main purchase though was one I was a bit concerned about. It isn’t a very common item either, but good old eBay came up trumps once more.
I found a pre-Christmas Recession sale and bought six of them from Vladimir in Uzbekistan. Good old Vladimir. I’m going to leave him a very high score on the web site, as he was very efficient, and I will certainly be dealing with him again.
As I said, the crates arrived and the construction is complete.
They look fantastic.
I can’t wait to see Santa’s face when he arrives in the area and sees the lovely welcome I have prepared.
That’s a lot of ammo for one bearded man. I’m talking about Santa, by the way.
Radge – He’s a slippery bugger. I like to be sure. And it will do for next year too, in case he has a deputy?
Everyone focuses on the missile.
What radar do you have to guide them? Claus one is using stealth this year. His Radar cross section will be very low. IR won’t work as the 8 propulsion units run very cool. A methane detector maybe, but they are not very common.
Flying through the air. On a surface to air jet propelled missile.
It just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
Jim C – I’m using one of the new X-band Pulse radars. They use phase shift modulated laser, and are quite something. They can spot a gnat fornicating at fifty miles. Don’t tell the American Military though – they don’t know I ‘borrowed’ the plans.
Lottie – It won’t have any ring to it after Christmas Eve. Heh!!
Scud enough for me.
You’d want to be careful about having missiles AND a beard, you never know who might invade.
Visit, I mean visit.
Maxi – If you’re worried about them Merikans invading me, then you can relax. We all know they can’t catch beardy fellas even if they were hiding in the Oval Office.
Brings new meaning to the term “missle-toe”.
DAMMIT!! That was YOU I was bidding against?? Why didn’t you tell me? We could have combined our forces and perhaps negotiated a 2 for 1 deal.
Vlads Emporium of Explosions is one of the best places to buy from in my humble opinion.
Cranky – Sorry about that. I think that was the last of his old stock. If I have any left in the New Year I’ll send them over to you? A wee present?
Can I borrow a couple to arm around here? I’d use my G3, but I don’t think I can lead a target going that fast 🙁
TheChrisD – eBay is your friend.
