I live in South Asheville. We used to have a nice club when Model Mania was here. Since he moved up north,HobbyTown tried to start one,I believe. We just got a Hobby Lobby here and it is nice. Wish we could start a club here.
No smart phone for me,I'm to dumb to use one. We have a flip phone with pay as you go for my wife to have for emergencies. There are about 1200 minutes on it.Keeps rolling over. No tats either, just old !!!
As far as to the violence, I spoke with a retired high school teacher yesterday. She said that the kids now do not respect authority. This begins at home growing up.If you start young teaching respect hopefully it will carry over to later years. One of the problems is that the parents don't have that and there are too many parents addicted to too many things to list here,some legal,many not. You must teach respect for authority,whether they are police,teachers,their parents and older people,etc... She said that she had a boy come up to her and say," My mama said I don't have to take (poop) off of you" If this is too political or against forum rules,please delete it,Harry
Doug, I enjoy our hobby as well as Photography. I don't have an expensive camera,but I try. The ones that complain about your pictures are most likely jealous. they try to bash anothers work to make themselves feel better. I think your models and pics are GREAT and PLEASE don't delete any of your pics.As someone else said,delete the messages instead and ignore the crybabies that sent them.
They say that if your mattress is 8 years old it is time to replace it.Also,the idea of a pillow between your knees works!!! It does help me. I have a terrible back and leg issues. Hang in there and you will be back to your old self Or better and you won't be so grumpy!!! Just kidding,it is no fun not feeling good.
