Hi everyone! I feel like I need to explain the fact that I haven't been posting a lot lately, & it seems like I haven't had much to share in the way of model building... I guess I could also use any prayers or moral support you could throw my way... 3 years ago, I was diagnosed with a genetic eye disease...without boring you with all of the gory details, suffice it to say that while I'm not going totally blind, over the last 12 months or so, my vision has deteriorated to the point where it's starting to impede my model railroading abilities, & pehaps more importantly, impede my ability to make a living. I have been making some preparations over the last couple of years in regards to retirement, & while this may not be an easy transition, it is at least doable in the near future... I am not however, a quitter! I have no plans now, or for the future, for laying down & giving up! I plan to go on with enjoyiong my life to the fullest extent I can! And that includes model railroading! I just find myself kinda down & out about it at times, & seeing as how I feel a close kinship with all you good folks, I thought I'd unburden myself a little, & ask that you simply say a prayer for me if you would. Thanks! I'll keep you posted!
