    Hi again fellow Gaugers. It's been awhile I know, and I see a lot of new faces and some very talented new members since I was last here on a regular basis.

    The last 4 months have been the busiest of my life. I teach, supposedly part time at the local university, but this past semester I took on a double course load - that is double the regular full-time teaching assignments. I also have a small business doing freelance graphics, and you might know it got very busy during the same time.

    Anyway, all that is to say that I had no time left for hobbies. I would come home and all I wanted to do was veg out.

    But - I got through it. It's over, my schedule is back to normal, and I am now back to the stuff that really matters: model railroading and the Gauge!

    I'm really looking forward to catching up on all the great modelling and conversations that I've missed. It's great to be back!! :) :) :)
