Happy Holidays and Thanks!

Hi everyone,

First, I want to wish everyone here a wonderful holiday. I hope we all get visited by the hobby elves. :)

Second, I want to say thank you to everyone who signed a get well card for me at BBB. I got the card while in the hospital and I can't tell you all how much it meant to me. I'm completely amazed at all of your kindness. I feel very lucky to be involved in a hobby with so many great people. So thank you, even though words can never express my true feelings.

Finally, I decided to see how my painting skills stood post-stroke so I painted a few models to compare with early ones. I actually painted a number of Harad models (I felt very inspired) and posted some pics on my blog. http://fivearmies.blogspot.com/2011/12/im-back.html

I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday.

Thanks,

Jamie

Definitely looking forward to some games, hopefully soon. I told Chris that I'll likely be as bad a player as I used to be (luckly no cognitive damage from the stroke) but of course, now I'll blame all my losses on the stroke when the truth is that I suck at winning. :twisted:

Jamie!

I'd like to pile on the welcome backs and well wishes of others here. I had no idea what had happened! Work and home life suddenly kept me away from here these past few months but it was nothing compared to what you have gone through. I am finally reading/painting/playing again and I wanted this to be my first reply back. Glad you are getting well!

Take care
fyedaddy
