Back From Salute - A Secret Project Revealed!

Well, what a fabulous day it has been. Warm, sunny and Salute 2013.

I'm going to split up the day into a number of posts. As I know you are all shivering with anticip..............

ation, I'll start with the revelation of one of the Secret Projects. To begin with, this Secret Project is approved, endorsed and blah-di-blahed by our esteemed Brush Daimyo, Curt.

The big reveal (and presentation) was done at the bloggers' meetup at lunchtime. After folks had been given a chance for chinwagging and comparing swag, I called for quiet, made a brief speech and presented the secret project to Ray, the Universal High Imperial King of Sandbagging. Here are some pics:

Ray pretends to be pleased with his award

"Not more photos?!?!?!"

Faster than a speeding bullet, Ray rips open the package

"My word, they are full size sandbags!"

Taken last night to show the label

Yes, a pack of 5 hessian sandbags - I was pretty sure he must have run out and would need some more for next year's Challenge!

Next Post: My Swag

  5. @ Fran - yup, I got the pics downloaded and uploaded quick-smart as I knew people wanted to see the Secret Project.
    And that would be "the most Royal and Majestic Sandbagger" ;)

    @ Marzio - swag next, then blogger meetup, then pics of the games

    @ Mike - today was definitely a good laugh

    @ Ray - you love them! I knew you would! *grin*

    @ Paul - now, now, don't go giving him ideas ;)

    @ Phyllion - of course, you got to the meetup after the presentation. Shame you missed it "live"

  12. @ Lee - definitely well deserved :)

    @ Seb - you need wait no longer - my swag pics are up!

    @ Anne - I'm sure he's loving every minute of it :)

    @ Crazy Joe - you're not the first person to suggest that career option ;)

    @ Ray - you've tried them on? You mean to say you've cut holes in them? However will you be able to fill them for submission in the next Challenge? ;)

    @ Gowan - he might need a whole load more (and some sand/dirt to fill them) to build the protective bunker ;)

  13. Nice one! I suppose Ray could stitch them together to make a very fetching sarong. Steady Fran... :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I wish I could have got away too see this, alas too many customers to get away for 1/2 hour

    ReplyDelete
  15. @ Curt - a sarong? Hmmm, now there's an idea. Mind you, there's enough material to make a nice toga

    @ Andrew - well, business comes first I guess. Maybe next year or at another show?
