Subject: ADMIN: I'm back

Hi gang. Peggy and I are back from her grandfather's funeral.
We decided that there wasn't much point in staying the entire
weekend and left a couple of hours after the funeral. He was
a very good man who's been suffering with cancer for months.

If you'll indulge me for a few sentences....

I hold in high regard anyone, regardless of their faith (ie,
Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, etc) who can follow that
faith 100%. Its something I have a very difficult time doing.
Peggy's grandfather, "Doc", was one such man who, as a country
physician, had helped countless individuals and practiced
medicine in his retirement home to the very end. Very well
loved man who had a sincere belief in his God and did his
best to help others, even to the point of being taken
advantage of. I didn't know him very long, but his death
touched me deeply. I think his dying words said it all...

"For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure
is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my
course, I have kept the faith" 2 Timothy, 4:6-7

Can you imagine going out with those words? Hearing it left me
speechless.

Anyway, I have received numerous messages of condolence from
fellow FTE'rs, and rather than attempt to answer them all I'll
say here to everyone.... "thank you." I mean it sincerely and
it was nice coming home to it. I'll be taking care of FTE
administrative items and will catch up by the end of the
weekend.

Thanks,
Ken Payne

i have a 99 f150 4x2. it has the sport package. it has the p275 something
tires. when i go over railroad tracks or a bump in the road, the a$$ end
kicks sideways on me. this doesn't happen with a load in the bed though. is
this because the a$$ end is so light, or is my truck just messed up?

Heres a little blurp from the Yblock mag., nov. -dec. '99 :
"A super charged 480 cu. in. 1958 Lincoln powered dragster would be top
eliminator at the 1959 N.H.R.A. all gas nationals in Detroit. The first
supercharged dragster to win the Nationals and the last Ford to win."

So Ford guys, we ought to be glad we got at least one in there! and that one
was a MEL.
