Stormtrooper Beer — Fan Of… #85

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is Stormtrooper Beer ๐Ÿ˜‹

I have always been a huge fan of Star Wars since the originals back in the late 70s. Of all the characters, the much maligned Stormtroopers have always been my favourite, so, when I saw this beer on sale, with pint glass, I had to have it.

Had a bit of help from my lego guys to get in to it ๐Ÿ˜‚

First, they had to get into the box!

Next was getting the bottle open.

The guys weren’t strong enough, so had to call in a Scout Walker.

Success, cheerz ๐Ÿ˜‹ (One guy did get stuck in the bottle whilst checking there wasn’t any left ๐Ÿคฃ)

A Huge Thank You ๐Ÿ™

As I continue to recover from my appendectomy, & dip my toes back into WordPress, I’d just like to say a huge thank you to all you awesome folk out there sending their best wishes my way.

I had hoped to be back up & running on WordPress earlier. However, my body had a different idea; it would seem that recovering from an operation takes a lot more brain power than I had anticipated & quelled the creative spirit.

I must be getting back to normalcy now & I have my weekly Fan Of… & Water Water Eveywhere challenges back up & running. I look forward to getting back into photo taking & taking part in all your inspirational challenges. I will get round to all your great comments that have come in over the last few weeks.

Again, a huge thank you & have a great week ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Flowering Cacti — Fan Of… #84

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is flowering cacti.

These two cacti featured last year (Fan Of… #45). They had lots of flowers on them when my wife bought them for me; the blooms lasted a long time, but as with all flowers eventually wilted & died. For a long time nothing much happened, although a couple of flowers did materialise on the pinky-orange one in Aug. Through all this time, new leafs continued to sprout & finally, almost a year after they were in bloom, pretty much over night, they went crazy with flowers.
