No, David, that's not "being silly"...
...we are ALL getting older - so that cannot be said as having anything to do with it.

It is being human, and we each understand - in our own way.
There are certain plans that do just the same for me...

If that sentiment is "silly," then I for one, am long gone. I know that much of my 'attraction' to this and the other sites are for "do overs" of those models I know I could build better now, or to re-live some of the glorious flights of the past, and this time be able to steer the model back home instead of soaring out of sight, or to finally be able to have one of those planes that I could not afford as a youth. And succeeding in any of those areas, including just having a plan for a Ben Shereshaw or Goldberg or that long lost Musciano design produces as many, if not more, endorphins than alcohol or a sugar high.

Perhaps that makes me an addict, but at least with far fewer adverse health effects.

Older, wiser, and perhaps 'sillier,'

Kevin asks "how are you all fixed for World Peace?" Can't make that happen Kevin. Would you settle for Whirled Peas instead?

What "long lost Musciano design" are you referring to?

Heh! Heh! If every one was busy buldling their hearts desire from these pages, no one would have time for hate and discontent! They'd be too busy, working on the next contest winner!
