I Did It, I Did it!!!!!
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Monday, April 10, 2023 7:44 AM
Hi ya';ll Well it seems I did it. Yeah, I overcame the first examples of the Parkinsons that now plague me. I built a model from start to finish and didn't mess up even once.I also found a way to paint that still gives me straight lines. Yeah There's a whole lot of shakin goin on, for sure .But, I will build models til they pry the X-Acto knife from my cold dead fingers.C'mon I dare you to try and take it! Surprisingly, I am comforted in the diagnoses.It's nice to know this wasn't an overdone version of Elder Instability we all face in varying degrees. So with all that;s said I am still gonna be here for a while yet-God Willing!
