I can be seen operating the crane by remote control lifting the gangway just in front of the casing on deck, probably smoking to calm my nerves lol

Aye, not too bad willie, Know how you feel about the back problem.........had to give up Driving for a living some years ago, and yet people still think you are faking it when you say you have back problems.............Put it down to all the years I spent getting in and out of bloody MG's lol.

got divorced since you were last on, and my two kids have both left high school, one onto sixth form with her 13 gcse's and the other has taken up a sponsorship with a company and now at Fleetwood Nautical College training to become a deck officer with the Merchant Navy.

and me..........still slogging on with the Calmac Jupiter as you can see and looking for a nice blonde or red head.............or any colour hair for that matter to have some fun with in my old age, lol.

and contemplating giving up model ship building from scratch after the completion of the Jupiter and moulding a steam lifeboat for a mate, as my hands are so painful with arthritis that I plan on selling all my tools that I have collected over a lifetime, and buying either or both, another MG and a bike............had a ride on a Harley for the first time in 35 years a few weeks back................and the thrill just hasn't gone away even in all those years.................so fancy an old classic or a modern touring Beamer ( two wheels of course)................that'll, either kill or cure the back probs.........the only problem was that after I had had my ride on the Harley...........I suffered whip lash for a week,.....lol.

Aye, I have been affected with arthritis in my spine for twenty odd years but was told by doctor when I was medical discharged from army I would probably not be walking by the time I reached forty, well hit that milestone earlier this year and still using my pins, although the morphine helps, but twenty years of throwing fish boxes between 40+60 kgs and bags of scallops weighing 70-80 kgs about has done a lot of damage so no more fishing for me and probably work at I have thre that have left school,one works full time one is in Zimbabwe volunteering at Victoria falls with orphans and the like, another just started training as a chef in college, then youngest two are only in P2 and P4 so still hard work lol, sorry to hear about divorce, if you are on facebook whats your username and I will add you,

Busted Backs seems a common problem I was put on disability benefits in the mid '80's after crush fracturing L4, T11 & 12 and C6 
and told if they operate I'd probably die or be wheelchair bound it wasn't until "94 they found a Pituitary Tumor had caused severe Osteoporosis 
and was told in November '94 i'd be more comfortable at home as I wouldn't live until christmas please to say I've proved them wrong 
All we can do is our best to overcome adversity and no matter what not lose sight of what makes us happy family and hobbies first.
Good to see you back and Posting Willie.

Can I join the bad back club please, I have arthritis in multiple joints the piece of paper says, but it is primarily lower spine and both knees, I have 

been offered a new right knee but what's the point when you can't kneel on it, I can still kneel on the old one but struggle getting back up Lol

Hi Damien, just been awarded PIP, never realised I could have done that years ago, but its all lower spine thats knackered on me , plus the arthritis has caused the bone to malform and putting pressure on my nerves for legs , it now seems a requisite for becoming a modeller, welcome aboard Troutrunner, just a pity you have to join our club, those that dont have the problems see a lot of us as malingerers yet wouldnt want the pain we are in esp first thing in the mornings when everything has tightened up and to repeat that process,my last few years have been popping opiate based pain killers and carrying on working as ESA itself was never an option, when I signed on the person I was dealing with was kind of skeptical that I iwas previously paid 4 figures a week and I was just working my ticket to get the grand total of £12 a week from DWP, (I get a war pension and war disability pension from military which lowers the payments) , will be back posting here more often and certainly more than I have been but pictures for the falcon will just be added every 4,8 or 12 weeks once I have enough to build something thats worthwhile posting lol

At least it has never stopped you modelling, (Well only in front of a camera lol), Well a nice trip to Inverness tomorrow to see the rheumatologist, first appointment, so know it will be a sorer one for next few days, was at a chronic pain clinic a few months ago, was asked if I would travel 130 miles to physio, No probs I said, as long as am not expected to participate as will be in agony from the drive, oh said the nurse, will try and get you physio at home, to which I  went to 4 years ago to be told by the physio that she couldnt do nothing so will see when next one comes through the door
