New From Texas

Hi everyone.  I was first introduced to Lego in the early 70s as a young child.  I remember having some great sets, including most of the original Space stuff.  Unfortunately, I stopped collecting/playing with Lego when I hit 13 or so.  My mom sold all my stuff when I left for college.  That was my dark period with no Lego and no interest. 

I started collecting again in college in the early 90s.  It was the Western theme that drew me back in.  It's been a bit up a down since, with a prolonged grey period when I was married.  It wasn't so much a lack of interest than a lack of funds/time.  Four kids will do that to you.  My ex wanted out in 2011 and I threw myself back into my collection.  Thank God I had it!  I found peace and satisfaction through Lego that I was sorely lacking in my life at the time.  I'm in a much better place now and have fully embraced my love for Lego. 

My main focus these days is City/Town.  I'll buy other themes if I see a way to make them work in my city.  The only bad thing is that I live in an apartment and just don't have a lot of room.  Most of my collection sits in boxes.  One day I will have enough space to put my vision together.  Til then, I'm building modular landscapes and buying used parts to make older sets that aren't available anymore.

    Apparently we may be facing flooding all through next week - I hope it doesn't ruin my three day weekend:(

    The correlations in your story and mine are very similar, not my intro but the last year or 2.
