As you all may know i have beenAOL fom the site for a wee while now ,so an explanation is due,last year i had a series of small strokes which left me with some damage to the left side of my body,unfortunately this included my eyesight,and i find great difficulty in focusing,last week i had a more serious one which put me in hospital,so no more red wine and cigars for me but as we Highlanders say sod em! and march on.It may take a wee while to find a solution but it is there somewhere,meanwhile i will be around in the background.
all the best to you all

I've always enjoyed seeing your figures and I really hope this situation can be overcome with time. And you can always count on the support of all us "Armorama veterans".

Hi Arthur,
Here's hoping for a speedy recovery for you.
It's said that you can't keep a good man down.
Well..you're a good man. I know because shortly after I joined this site, I got a very, very nice PM from you welcoming me on board.
Just know that you're in our thoughts.

Hey Arthur! Best wishes on a speedy recovery. Apply your Scot Will to the task and good things will happen. Also, you won't believe how good you will feel after the ciggys are gone from your bod. Besides, you'll have LOTS more moola to spend on your hobby!
Keep faith in yourself,
Rick
