A warm welcome from a recalcitrant old timer in Florida. I've been on an unexpected and hopefully soon-to-be-over hiatus from my beloved OPR job and pals. Hannie's playing of the "Home" video so reminds me of my early days in OPR. I was one of the first volunteers, and that video is what called to me. I'd only done a few restorations, and I really loved doing them, so I joined, posted my first restoration with great trepidation and was met with so much help and camaraderie that I knew I'd found home! I'm sure you'll feel the same way. There's always someone checking posts, ready to help with any questions or issues you might have with your work.
Some of our more vocal volunteers are a bit serious (a certain Dutch hun person comes to mind - no names mentioned), but others can be a lot of fun. Enjoy and learn. This is a great family.
BTW, any of you old-timers who remember Aussi Max: I've gotten a couple of e-mails from him. He's doing okay, but having a bit of a down time like me, but still has his wonderful sense of humor. May or may not be back, but I thought you'd want to know that he and Margaret are still doing well - hating getting old, just like me, but still hanging in there.
I'm hoping to be joining you on the forum before long.
