I blame Carl Arendt ( and Ian Holmes )

Postby pyro » Fri Oct 23, 2015 12:38 am

Hi all,just retired lately and trains are calling me back. It's been decades since I last dabbled in the hobby, Ho and Hon30 then. But the eyes ain't what they used to be!! So bigger is better. Stumbled across Carl's site and was mightily intrigued. Theres been big changes in the hobby no pun intended and it looks like there's fun to be had. So I'm in and we'll see where it takes me :mrgreen:

Hi Steve,

Welcome to the Gnuthouse! There is plenty of inspiration here - look at the Virtual Exhibition and Loco Shed sections for what people have done in the past. There are plenty of people who can offer advice, too, so ask away, and do post photos of anything you are working on.

Hi Steve,

Welcome to our little spot. Plenty of fun to be had here. And we're pretty laid back too, whatever you do and however you do it that's fine with us.

And yes, there's plenty of us in here who blame Carl or Ian or both as often as possible (but nicely, of course).

cheers,

pyro

Hmmm perhaps I should have left signature unsigned but credit due where it should be.
Seasick Steve is my all time favourite blues artists and that's the title of one of his CD's. Too all the British users he's on Jools Hollands Tv show a few times check him out if u like blues. Long story short I'm not Steve but I do look like him just can't play...

Hi,

I assumed you weren't the original 'Seasick Steve' but are you Steve?

It doesn't matter terribly, but I always reckon it's good to at least know someone's first name.

cheers,

Aha, hello Phil!

You could (if you wanted) change your signature to look something like:


Phil

" I was born with nothing and I still have some of it left " Seasick Steve


And that way we don't have to remember your name but still have the enjoyment of the quote and where it came from.

Cheers,

Well put, I'll use my limited computer skills to do that. If I remember how :P :P

Belated "hello & welcome" from me, Phil.

Carl Arendt has a lot to answer for, but all of it is good!
