I'm not new here ... but have been absent lately 09 Sep 2016 09:48 #1

I turn the computer on it goes to MA automatically ... so You may think I'm on-line but Life has been very hard for me lately ...

You see my Mother will turn 90 years old on Sept 20, about 8 weeks ago she was put in the ICU because she had serval Blood clots in Her lungs and legs. On top of that she got Cellulitis in her feet and couldn't walk, plus she probably at Stage 6 of Dementia ... So I've been very busy taking care of her. Along with my 3 brothers we've been taking turns going to the rehab center and feeding her meals, she doesn't know how close she came to She came to leaving this earth, or does she know where she is. She gets to go back home next Wednesday, we will still be busy taking turns helping Her. Anyway I know there are lots of builds I have entered, but I can't find the time to sit down at the bench, so for not finishing them I'm sorry, I also just lost the modeling fever after the Eagle Quest Fiasco, I got there at the entry desk 4 minutes late, so my entry, My 1st one didn't get in ... I did get to sit it on the table, but it wasn't judged.

So every night I wait until the sleeping pill takes effect, so I can go home, I have been modeling on my Commission build ... and it is almost finished. On my Christine build I painted the top red, so after looking at Her the top was white in fixing that the Tamiya red lacquer paint crackled so that need fixed. add on top of that our Downtown push to get people back, in out stores, Rally around Greenville, Halloween, The Bob wills fiddle festival, Downtown stroll coming up. I have managed to install 4 Tsunami Sound chips and my rail truck is working, I fixed the back light on my Shay Logging engine ...

Sorry for the rant ... I just thought you should know why I'm in the shape I'm in ....

Still needs more work ... But I'm very happy with this little Critter ... plus the trailer is looking good also .... just hang in there I'll be back soon ... The train show is Oct 1 also so the two modules at the shop are being completed ... so lots to do not much time.

I'm just very thankful Momma's Ok for now ... just I'm wore out and have no spare time .... :salute

We understand Gerry! Thanks for the heads up. I was beginning to wonder wher you had gone off to. As to your Mom, congratulations on her reaching 90.

My Mom will be 90 in March and she just reached a point where she gets dizzy and can faint unexpectedly. Docs aren't sure exacty why but she can't drive anymore because of it. I guess it is one of those things. :(

Thanks Dave .... Some of my Brothers want to put Her in a rest Home permanently, but that's not living really ... I think I get real sad when I go out there ... I feel sorry for what I see ... Momma got 13 out of 15 Questions right this morning so she's getting much better ... :woohoo: :thumbsup
