SEMCA was a nice get together...My Dad and my son, displayed single shots, pictured above, I displayed Trench 'Arty' Souvenirs..Type-14 displayed Prototype Type 14s, and had some 'work' done...In the midst of the 'work' he discovered a visit from some 'friends'...

by the way, there are no markings on that 'pedestal' under the livestock...


In addition to growing Rice, Corn, and Beans, it also appears that Riceone is also growing cats...Be very cautious if he invites you to a restaurant that serves food supplied by him...I saw a bumper sticker in Riceone, MS that said, 'Eat More Rice, Potatoes make your butt big!' No ma'am I'm sure I ordered CHICKEN and Rice not KITTENZ and Rice...

Seriously, he had a great display, however the 'hired help' should probably run 'Spell Check' before finishing the signs...Voila...The magic of the internets...Never mind, 'spell check' completed, no postage due...Nothing to see here, move along, these are not the misspellings you are looking for...'




I had some work done, 6 years in the making. Here are before, during, and after pics, my thanks to KeithReid, Vic Soto, Don Schilckman, my Dad, the Olde One, and Riceone...Kokura #779...




The Olde One had a couple interesting displays...Cut Aways, and Novelty Weapons...Did you hear about the Elite IJA
Cavalry Unit in East Outer Mongolia, trained by Scottish Midget Mercenaries on 3 Legged Shetland Ponies....You will...

Stopped by the print shop today and that little spelling error on the poster has been taken care.
