Jay, it is with great joy to see you alife and kicking here!
I am doing fine. A bit older, married, and still happily collecting Lili Ledy, and since a few years also PBP/Poch variants. Not so active on TIG anymore - despite the great content and community - and mostly on board of another ship.
Facebook is a challenge nowadays, but let's belief in the strengths of fora as TIG, RS, SWFUK, and TXI, being strongholds of valuable and searchable knowledge and homes of warm communities. There will be a place for them, always.
Black Wampa is doing fine as well but he has become out of control and unstoppable nowadays, living its own myth. Lately he was spotted during a Lili Ledy book presentation at a Mexican convention. It was a pity though that the authors had based part of their book on pictures and info from the TIG guide (w/o permission, I might add), instead of doing their own research. Luckily Black Wampa ("Wampa Negro") chimed in during the book presentation (around 13:00) and provided instant Karma with the story of the Lili Ledy intern who made a mistake with the Lucasfilm negatives and then communicated the wrong paint colour.

Your departure obviously predates my joining, but just wanted to chime in a big "thank you" for getting the ball rolling on this great reference site! I can't tell you (and everyone else involved since then) just how valuable a resource this site has become for us folks who got into the vintage collecting a little late to be able to do extensive MOC research ourselves! Hope you and your family are doing well!
