I knew you had a future here, but I never would have guessed how it turned out!
Ever forward, eh?
PS: THANK YOU SO MUCH for the NC effort - I think I see some plans forming, it ought to be something very special.

IF MY BODY WERE A truck...
If my body were a truck, this is the time I would be thinking about
trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in
my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull ... but that's not the
worst of it. My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to
see things up close. My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I
slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of
weather. My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins. It takes me
hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently. But,
here's the worst of it --
Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter.....either my radiator
leaks or my exhaust backfires!!!!
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body,but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out shouting"Holy Crap, What a Ride" R.I.P.Marty, Jason
I race it on side roads with a smaller engine than many. My thought is that handling matters most - not high speed. It dances on the two laners, and grips well so I can stay in my lane no matter how fast I go. Times are tuff, so fuel is not a thing to throw away. I use every bit of it as if it was going to be the last....
BUT I CAN STILL RUN!
I won't break down if I can help it, but if I do I can be fixed and NOT by a stranger. I will fix myself....
And both paint and clothes are my own choices, I can put on whatever I want to.
