I would like to just give you all some news regarding me - as it's always better to hear it "from the source" rather than idle gossip.
I am well, I am fine. However, I do need to have prostate surgery to correct an enlarged prostate, which, as almost all you guys know, an enlarged prostate is a very common problem for fellows of, uh, "our age".
Thankfully, there is no cancer, but the surgery is necessary to get me back to a normal routine. It's an out-patient procedure, called 'Green Light Laser' with recovery time being minimal. I'm told I will be able to return to work within a week following the procedure. The procedure will be done in a surgical center, not a hospital, to avoid contact with COVID-19 patients. Because of this,I've been sidelined for a bit from working, so orders are backing up.
Have no fear- all orders will be delivered. I've also taken the opportunity to post this here, because, of all things, my Web Master has told me my website has been hacked! Last thing in the world I need right now. So if you try to visit "L & L Restoration" you're gonna get a screen that says "Account Suspended". It's not. It's just temporarily taken down until the web host can get the bugs out of it. Since it's the weekend, he can't get any info out of anyone till Monday. Hopefully it'll be back up sooner rather than later.
Please- don't listen to any rumors you may have heard. I'm NOT going out of business; I'm NOT on my "last legs;" I can't WAIT to get back to work, and my doctor says I'm an extremely healthy man and will live a good long life once this problem has been remedied; and after that I intend to spend most of my waking hours working on trains! - Particularly since I won't have to spend so much time going to the bathroom! LOL!
I thank all my clients and friends for their kindness and patience. Once my website is back up and running I'll post more updates and info there.
Thanks once again to all my train buddies, and also, to the "O" Gauge forum for giving us all this great platform to communicate with our fellow train pals!
Be well and stay safe, all.
