I found I was not please, and never would be, with the quality of my artwork and modeling efforts. The amount of time and effort required to come close to my friends in the hobby was more than i was willing to put in.
That, and I stopped liking trains as much for reasons I can't get into too deeply.
Meh, I read comics, play video games, play on this forum, and used to paint model trains. If that makes me a loser, so be it.
My wife still loves me, loser and all.
I had an N gauge. Great when you have limited space, a P.I.T.A. when they jump track and you have to put them back on.
Heck, I enjoy playing sports (mostly football) board games. Usually solitaire b/c I don't think there's another geek within 100 miles of me. It's fun, and keeps ya strategizin' and thinkin'. So +1 on the loser and wife still loving me, etc.
