    I can imagine that many people miss you on here as well Craig. I check the forum each day just for my "fix" of the hobby at this point.

    Good luck on whatever you decide although I would certainly love to see what you come up with next!
    Thanks.. part of my problem was like you, I was on the boards every day..sometimes for hours.. I got over the need for the fix by quitting cold turkey.. now that itch.. I am still thinking about it..

    Come back to the light side. I for one have blatantly copied your ideas due to my lack of creativity.

    You’re an artist reaching out to touch his canvas... with... a... toe?!? OK, I don’t know where I’m going with thi...

And near as anyone has been able to tell I may be the oldest animated lighter that is still active (78). If I can do it, certainly you can do it.
    Wow.. you are 78? That is impressive! I don't know where my thoughts will take me but I am truly thinking about it..

    Your star flakes and RBL's are still shining bright in my display! Happy to sell them back to you if you want. I'm only 6 hours south of you... As long as I'm able I will have a display. I don't know how you just quit. I couldn't do it. Jump back in!

    Awesome.. I am so glad they got a good home.. I think if I step back in I might look at making all new props. Maybe more toward animatronics.. But thank you..

    It was not easy to just quit.. but due to traffic I really had no choice. If I do come back it will be for random one nighters.. I figure that I about the only way to keep the traffic manageable.
