    I forgot to put the picture in for the last post. It's a bit blurry, but like I said shakey hands... now if I can get over this surgery and maybe get rid of the shakes I can finish both of them.

    I'm here but don't feel good at all. My neck hurts and my throat feels weird. Feels kinda like breathing through a tube. Hands shaking. i think it could be the steroids but don't know for sure. The pain pills take the edge off but not doing what it should. Hope this gets better soon.

    Another thing is "if..you bought it on-line at places like Ebay or Amazon, they will void the warrant. I ran in to that just with the latest loco i bought on Ebay!! Cost me 60 bucks for them to fix or replace it... My understanding is that on-line places like Fifer Hobby and regular stores, the...
