I’ve got some serious barbequing to do today with my wee ones, so I’ll spare you my typical long-winded blathering. I don’t have any fond childhood memories to share of playing Legos with my dad, he wasn’t too into toys or fun for that matter. I do greatly enjoy building with my kids, and we’ll probably do some of that today, in between water-balloon fights, ice cream and episodes of Samurai Jack. Thanks to my 9yr old there is some action going on in the Legoratory and I am more than willing to share that with you. She’s very creative and a great deal of fun to collaborate with, although I may come to regret introducing her to Bricklink. This is just the beginning of a sprawling equine-themed diorama that should keep us busy all summer long. My little one is more into destroying projects than creating them, but that’s fun too. Life is good in Casa de Goldman, and I hope you guys are knee-deep in some quality Lego time with your kids.
I looked around briefly for a fatherhood-themed model to spotlight, but all I could find were some low-res dioramas from The Empire Strikes Back, you know, the whole: “Luke, I am your father” thing. That’s not going to fly today because to quote the late, great Freddy Mercury: “Jaws was never my scene and I don’t like Star Wars.” Since I have a strict policy of not posting Star Wars creations, I decided to simply go with something cool. Thank you F@bz, your work is always entertaining.
I’ll leave you with a movie clip that sum up my feelings about Father’s Day better than anything I could write. For all you dads out there, enjoy your day!
