Coming out - sort of . . . .
Lee Hadley raised a point on his blog (he raised a few actually) about the anonymity of blog authors/owners. As I said at the time, I adopted a pseudonym when I began this blog because it appeared to be the thing to do. I'm not ashamed of my hobby or embarrassed about it, but I readily accept that some gamers/painters feel more comfortable with a degree of confidentiality because of other constraints.
So, I've dropped the Crazy Joe title and 'come out'. Yes Mum, it's me! (Actually my mother died 33 years ago, so that was just for comic effect.) I'm Gary Amos and I live in Stretford, Manchester. I'm afraid that's as interesting as it gets. I don't have a criminal record or anything, but there's a Maltese policeman who won't forget New Year's Eve 1974 in a hurry!
Strangely, my name has disappeared from the front page of the blog, but it is proudly displayed on the profile. Why? I have no idea. Anyway, nice to meet you.
