Hello All,

The wife of Jeff Orcutt (Hawkman67 is his screen name) dropped me a line to let me know that Jeff suffered a heart attack yesterday. He's recovering well after having some arterial blockages cleared, and is expected to be released to go home sometime during the week. As anyone knows who has had a cardiac event, or is close to someone who has, getting over it is a process, not an event, so Jeff is facing some challenges ahead. Compounding this is the fact that he has just started a new job, so that leaves additional question marks for the future.

Jeff is well known here on pm.com, and his Modelworx repaints are well represented on Ecardmodels.com and on FG. Please keep the Orcutts in your prayers as we head into the holiday season here in the U.S. He passed on a message via his wife that he'd be back online here as soon as possible!

Thanks everyone. Jeff- get well, bud.

Wyvern

Oh, that would be a stress.
And speaking of stress, probably is best to not even think about shoveling snow this winter.

You will be back making models in no time. Just remember that the changes in your daily routine aren't bad..... just different!

As someone who's been to death's door and back here's wishing you the best. Will pray for you and yours. What Doug J said is absolutely true, hang in there and don't stress.
