I'm just waiting on some pics from John and then I'll put them straight up.  He's almost back to work properly after the heart attack and was making some progress on them when I spoke to him last week, so hopefully we should have something soon.

Here's me doing all the things that I'm supposed to do to avoid being the one that is recovering after a heart attack, making little sacrifices here and there and what happens?

Well I'll tell you.

I put my back out this morning and have been on Voltarol and Paracetamol ever since.

Sorry to hear that Jim, I hope you're feeling better soon.

I think John's been similar, he said how drained and lethargic he feels since the operation and it's taking him some time to get back to just 80-90% of his previous capacity.  He's exercising a lot more and he's getting there slowly.

Hope you feel better soon Jim. I've had perennial back problems since secondary school, especially after half slipping a disc. Putting socks on in the morning is now a constant challenge!

And cutting your toenails !  Cry Cry Cry.......Thank goodness that's not a daily task.

Hope it feels better soon, Jim !!......There are a lot of us here who have a very good idea of what you're going through.

Cheers - Phil

Add in sciatica and the mesh from the hernia repair, and one side is almost impossible to do if I've slept in a bad position, unless I spend around 15 minutes moving about to warm up Sad. Oh the joys of getting old and I'm only just 57 Cry

Jim, hope you recover swiftly! I get times when my back locks up for a few hours and that's bad enough, wouldn't wish it on my enemies, let alone my friends.

Steve, I have a plastic widget you position your socks on then plonk it on the floor and push your foot in. Only needed it for my left foot but it made a huge difference.

These days, as a 67 year old retiree, I have just abandoned sock wearing on all but the most formal of occasions!

yes, but scissors or nail clippers are more effective.

Apologies for the delay on things, 2020 hasn't been a great year so far...  The good news is that Tony's started sculpting again and is working on the first batch now.  I think he's going to do the civvies, mule trains, etc first as a bit of an easier job, before jumping into the British.  We'll be moulding the sculpts as soon as they land with us and then we can look at sending your pledges out in batches rather than one big box.



I'll also go with the flow but would prefer to wait for the big batch.  Health of your team more important. And I'm planning a New Years Resolution not to have a painting backlog of more than 4 orders at a time.   Cheesy 

Seasons Greetings.

Or was that a backlog of no more than four orders from any one manufacturer? Smiley

I to am happy to wait until my entire order is complete. Of for you to put them in with other orders I may occasionally make.
