My recent lapse in posting....update
« on: April 19, 2019, 12:54:05 pm »
Just a quick update re my slow down in participation here.
I have been overwhelmed time wise between my work, preparing our home to sell and now we are in Massachusetts for a funeral. A lifelong friend has lost his wife of 40 years plus, also a friend.

As time allows I will be here and checking in a lot.

Sorry to hear Gil, but life comes before the forum.

By the way, did not know you were moving... is the entire collection coming with or will you have to let some go?

Hope you get through these trying times in good shape Gil - nasty when everything piles up at once. Good friends are a blessing for life and very hard to lose.
Regards,
Larry

The collection stays other than usual rotation/evolution.

Best of luck, a collection move is no fun  ;) Took me about 3 years to get all the engines out of my parent's house... they were happy to see them go  :D
