I feel like the only straight at a gay party, but what happened to the gauge forum?:violin1: Here's my story of tragedy and woe; okay I exaggerate a bit. I've have been away from the hobby for quite some time now, a combination of surgery, hobby burnout and the fact I can't get close to the layout, its room has become a storage room (no garage or basement) and until I sift through the junk and throw most of it out, no progress on the layout. I haven't been at any forums for some time now (can you hear the guilt in my voice), so when I went to the Atlas forum, same old, same old. I come here and it sure has changed. I'm assuming it changed ownership; is that true? You won't see me for a while longer, I'm scheduled for surgery on Dec 17th to help get rid of multiple headaches I have had every day for years now - this surgery will be the best Xmas present ever. And as some of you know, I had one hip replaced and I will need the other hip replaced in the next year or so. The first hip was and is very slow to heal, surgery in May of 2006, and I still have slight pain in it. Tip to any guys needing both hips done, don't let the doctor talk you into getting both done at the same time - there's a good chance you'll regret it.
