    Hi folks! Just wanted to post a little explanation of where I've been and why you haven't seen much of me lately. Basically it's this: I've started teaching a new course and there's a lot of prep time and day to day assignment marking. Add to that gardening season, an ongoing freelance project and the odd evening of modeling and that about sums up my life these days.

    I have of course been fairly active in the chat room during the evening, having figured out how to trim sprues and talk at the same time!

    Anyway, the 2 main projects (teaching and freelance gig) will be wrapping up at the end of June, so expect to see a lot more of me (and hopefully some layout pix) when that happy day rolls around.

    Miss you all, and looking forward to getting back into the thick of things!

    cheers
    Val

    Don`t get around much anymore

    : When I'm not playing solitaire
    I take a book down from the shelf
    And what with programs on the air
    I keep pretty much to myself.
    Missed the Saturday dance
    Hear they crowded the floor
    Couldn't bear it without you
    Don't Get Around Much Anymore
    Though i'd visit the club
    Got as far as the door
    They'd have asked about you
    Don't Get Around Much Anymore
    Darling I guess my mind's more at case
    But nevertheless
    Why stir up memories
    Been invited on dates
    Might have gone but what for
    Awf'lly diff'rent without you
    Don't Get Around Much Anymore.

    Too bad so many of us still have to work for a living. Now I must admit as a retiree I don't know how I found time to go to work.
    Life is busy so will look forward to the summer when gardens are established and teaching is done and you will have more time to show us how your layout is developing Val.

    Val,
    Only those who have ever taught, can truly appreciate the amount of work, and, the personal satisfaction teaching can bring. Hope all goes well.
