    Hi all!

    I'd been feeling a bit down the past couple months, hence my scarce appearance. Then came the heart attack. I've been out of the hospital about a week now. Anyway, all kinds of projects for my website have been delayed.

    Hopefully I'll get some new stuff posted by the end of May

    Welcome back Thor, sorry to hear of your heart attack, hope you are getting better, I know where you'r at, I had open heart surgery 5 months ago and I am just starting to feel better now, programed excercise has really helped me recover, and don't overdue anything.
    Best Regards,
    Good Luck,
    Andrew

    Glad you are on the mend, Thor. No matter how much we complain about our own ailments, it is always encouraging to hear the good news. That is good medicine for all of us.

    Many thanks, folks. I'm slowly recuperating, and hopefully can climb back into my attic train room soon. And maybe even take that trip to Allaire for a few more critter photos. Time will tell. For now I just sit tight and make the best of it. :)

    scratching

    I knew this was a great forum. I have had your web site bookmarked for years now. I only recently found this site through a new aquaintence in Meaford Ontario Canada. I have sent a couple of Emails to you about having a little trouble with a couple of your downloads, however with everything else going on with you, please ignor my requests.
    Just so you know I have built 2 of your plans and you are the reason I even tried scratch building. YOu have done great stuff for the hobbie and I hope you stick in there. thanks again

    Frank,

    We had a lot of trouble with the old Windows ME, and I had to upgrade to XP. In the interim, we lost a LOT of email and for a while, folks weren't getting through to us. I can get email now without problems.


    I'm glad you enjoyed the paper kits. I have a lot of fun designing them.

    Thor,

    I joined this forum during your absence so we haven't met, but I do wish you the best for a speedy recovery.

    I was surfing around yesterday and found a site with some pictures of the Lackawanna RR that started off "hello, my name is Thor". Can I assume that this is one of your sites? I remember the Lackawanna from my boyhood days in NJ which was, well, a while back anyway.:rolleyes:
