Thanks, Patrick.  Yup.  Plusses and minuses.

You are right, Smiling.  Breakfast first!  Actually I was the breakfast preparer this morning.  Toasted Everything bagels with butter and sliced avocado.  Purty good.

Thanks again, Dave.  I

Thanks Jason.  Yup.  100 miles closer.  I will expect you to putt on down.  Bring as many of those Driftwood gits as you can bungee on your bike.
