Last Tuesday would have been Andy’s birthday. I didn’t get to release any Bots or GIs for it, but I did get out on my bike the following day with a couple of robots and a Hummer full of GIs, all of which ended up in the snow in Platt Fields. Annoyingly, it’s taken me until today to upload the pictures.
After giving the robots and soldiers their chilly freedom I headed on into town to shop, write and get this shot of the town hall complete with Santa and Christmas trees.
The plan was to get up early(ish) and release a bunch of Transformers whilst other people had a lie in. The problem is it’s Sunday, so I had a lie in. On the plus side, this way I got to see some of the responses to the robots, and I found out that teh South Manchester Model Boat Club sails on the boating lake on Sunday mornings.
I’ve been releasing GIs and Transformers almost everywhere I’ve travelled for the last three and a half years, an ongoing memorial to Andy. Now I want to step things up, and I’d like to enlist your help.
I want to send GIs and Transformers all over the world. So, if you would like your own numbered memorial soldier or robot all that’s needed is a small donation to postage and I will send you one. All I ask in return is that you send back a picture of them in an interesting location for me to publish. Any profit after sending out the troops will be donated to the JustGiving page set up in Andy’s memory.
