About time I stopped complaining about the weather.

We scrapped -6 C last week and today the noon temperature was close to +14 C (very unseasonal). Have yet to see any snow. Yet the newspapers were banging on incessantly about "carnage" on the roads and the nation grinding to a halt. God knows what it would be like if we had some really severe weather.

Well, that's kind of the way of the news media. They want attention, so everything is overdone.

Meanwhile, I'm resetting my brain out of the country. I have MUCH to do when I get home.

Stick at it, Josh. Modelling can be a useful outlet as I'm discovering with work really giving me the you-know-whats since I resumed three weeks ago after the Xmas closedown. Trouble is I turn 65 soon so telling them to insert the job where the sun never shines isn't really an option.

So I'm occasionally migrating to the far end of the table, whereupon lies a Bf109F and a Dakota. ;)

Just hold on... enjoy the things you love and it will turn out allright in the end

Quit my 8.5y relation a bit more then a year ago... Haven't been building since. Only recently the pleasure comes back bit by bit, and I've restarted building. Also met somebody fabulous during that time who also encourages me to build again.

Had used my hobby as a means to escape or not to be annoyed by how things went in the time, and it backlashed in a way.

Josh,
These life events take a lot of time to process on an emotional level. Take your time, share with others, we all have had similiar bad times. Don't be brave and bottle it up, SHARE.

Remember we are a Group. We are here.

Kind regards,

David the aged.

That's why I've never left here. We're motley, but we're a group. I really do appreciate it, because here in the 'real' world, there hasn't been any support.

I sat down at the hobby table tonight, and have to say, it was kind of relaxing. Working on what is probably too much stuff in too many scales, I'm making some good progress on things. Might even post some of it.

My little military is mighty now, in numbers. Need to start getting more of it done. :)

Anyhow, maybe I'll get a few things done tonight. Once they are mounted on stands, my C-5/F-15 display is done, and I'll post some pics of that. And tomorrow, I plan to do some more work down where the stash and shelves are.

Thanks again, everyone, it really does mean a lot.

JB
