It has been hard to think about wargaming and hobbies at a time when the country is mourning so many people in Christchurch.
However, it is heart-warming to know that humour can still shine through in such adversity, much like that old WW2 London blitz humour.
A guy whose house was destroyed by a monstrous rock during the earthquake is now selling that rock on New Zealand’s online auction site. The long string of questions and answers on the auction are incredibly funny.
Here’s the auction description:
For sale 1 owner 25 – 30 tonne landscape feature (answers to the name Rocky) …
He is in pristine condition (just a little bit of concrete dust). Suitable for garden feature, or as in our case a magnificent addition to your living area.
Rocky will enhance your “indoor outdoor” flow considerably, especially if you load him in through the garage roof like we did.
Sorry, but we are unable to deliver Rocky but would be happy for you to pick him up and roll him away (please mind our neighbours when you do)
ALL proceeds from Rocky’s sale will go to the Christchurch Earthquake Relief Fund.
The stats graph for this blog looks like it has been hit by an earthquake itself!
The overall earthquake damage in Christchurch and the surrounding areas in Canterbury is horrendous. I wish all wargamers in that area well.
