What Gives me determination.
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Tuesday, April 11, 2023 10:51 AM

Hi Ya'll;

         I want to thank all of you for the support and best wishes. Tis funny you know. Just when I was thinking about things then all this happens. Then what? I find that there  are many folks out there who do care. This is my Power! This is my Engine to surge forward! Why? Think about this. We all love the hobby right? We all pursue it in the best way we know, Right?

        We all have our favorite subject within it right? Many have more fun researching than building! That's hard to believe, but it is true. Having this chance, I researched this problem. I found that besides Therapy a positive attitude CAN help. I will accept all support in the good graces it was given and try to let ya'll know I will do my best. You are my inspiration and my friends, Could I do less than respond positively to your Encouragement? No! For that I thank All of you!

A positive attitude has long been recognized by medical professionals as an aid to recovery. And encouragement whether it is from friends and family,or from a scriptural or spiritual source is very helpful in improving our outlook.

So feel better soon.

My favorites change day by day. If I see a neat vehicle on TV or in a movie, or at an airport or auto race, it becomes my favorite.  I'll see if a can find a kit  or scale drawings, and start my research.

We're here for you, TB!  I'm curious to talk about your path/journey sometime, if you're open to it.  I have a tremor in my primary hand that makes things interesting at times, especially with my tendency to work on 1/72 and 1/144 aircraft.  As much as my perfectionism can be a thorn in my side in this hobby, lately I've come to focus more on the fun part and be grateful that I have the time and resources to do what I enjoy,'re an inspiration!
