Modern technology in the medical field has come a long way in the past 50 years. So much that it would make a person's "head spin." While I'm pretty "old school," I'm really amazed by some of the advances in medicine that have been made over the years.
Yes I started to build a replica of Jimmy Addison's Silver Bullet car, but it's on the "back burner" for now. A modeler from the GTR club Rick Hanna built a beautiful replica of this car for the Milwaukee NNL a couple of years ago.
Over the last several weeks a few of my pieces of mail that I had sent out never made their destination as the checks haven't been cashed as yet. Never have seemed to have this problem before, and since I use several post offices that I drive-by to drop off the mail, I'm unable to pinpoint the problem.
Good luck and prayers to you Vince. I've had my second total knee replacement done 7 1/2 years ago and I'm a "happy camper." I'm lucky enough to be able to crawl under my ride to do an oil change when I feel like it, and also able to do just about anything I want. No cane, no walker, no wheelchair and I thank God.
It's only money so enjoy life while you can. Sure it was great while Danbury and Franklin MInts were in business, but life goes on. I have my die-cast collection in a curio cabinet and enjoy having them. Occasionally one can find these die-casts at swap meets as I just saw a bunch for sale last month, but I wasn't in the mood to purchase any.
