I'm going to be in Olive Branch on Wednesday afternoon, 9/26, doing a vehicle inspection. Want to meet for coffee somewhere?

Jerry yes, what time will you be here? I could perhaps leave work a little early.

I have a Better Business Bureau arbitration inspection scheduled for 2:00 PM. It should take about an hour. This one could be one of those problems caused by "friction"- - - - -a car payment rubbing up against a warranty. Some folks get tired of paying for a vehicle they can't afford and start dreaming up imaginary problems so they can undo the deal. There's nothing on the agenda but a trip home after that, so my schedule is very flexible. I'll PM my cell phone number if you don't have it already.

He's definitely a brave soul- - - -met face to face with the forum pot-stirrer and lived to tell the tale! Once his stovebolt is a little closer to home, I'll probably volunteer a little time to give it a good tune-up. On the other hand, the guy with the brand new Chevy pickup with the imaginary problems was a no-show. He didn't really want anybody trying to confirm his complaints, I think.

Patrick grew up not far from us and we will meet up someday when he is back to visit.
I'll look like a saint next to you.

Somehow I survived and live to tell the story! We had a great talk and thoroughly enjoyed picking the expert's brain; I have so many more questions.
I find myself occasionally thinking that I actually know something about something, and then I run into the man who really knows something, and it reminds me of just how much there is to learn.

I hope to have my truck up here in Memphis soon, it sits under a cotton cover, patiently waiting, in my parents garage 90 miles away. I wish I could post a picture on here, but have no clue how to upload a simple picture to a thread.
