Am I back already?

Gee, it looks like I finally got the bugs out of my home computer, so
I'm back with you guys.

I was a little concerned leaving work for the last time Friday (I just
retired), knowing I did not have my new desktop working right (as far as
comm functions).  I had a laptop, which was okay for email but not for
reading large newsgroups like this one.  But retirement wouldn't be very
much fun if I couldn't hang out with my buddies here!

Welcome to the leisure set.  I retired 2 May 97 and have never looked back.
About three months into it, all the stress left me in 15 seconds on my
couch.  Life is good when you're no longer a wage slave.

Congrats, Don
Have you finished any kits yet?  Why not?  
I figure you'll have the TQ up and running better than ever now.
Good luck, have FUN!

Thanks, Mike.  Since this is an earlier retirement than I planned.  So I
intend to keep supplementing my income with writing income.  Since my main
target for writing is model magazines, you'll be able to see if I increase the
volume.  What I intend to do is some FLYING model stuff, so the number of
articles in FSM and SAE will probably be about the same, but more freeflight
and RC stuff will hopefully start appearing also.  Back to my *** years when
I used to design my own flying models.

I suppose one of these days I should model the TQ, since I only need to walk
into the garage to check details and dimensions.  I do intend to head down to
a speedshop down south to pick up a new water temp gauge for it.  The
exhibition schedule starts mid June.  I will be missing a big NNL event here
do to a conflict with a race date.  Okay, so it does show my priorities, but
running that thing is SO much fun!

In the meantime my 1/8 sprint car is nearing completion.  Sticking point now
is rollbar.  The bend radiuses are such that no tubing bender I have allows
really good curves, so I am looking for some 5/32 brazing rods.

I agree completely! I got in a little ahead of you, 9-1-93, and now wonder when
I had time to work! Now if I could just shed a few pounds that the lack of
stress put on me...
