I was wondering when you were going to pop in and rattle my cage! wave

Too old to chase anymore..just sit on the park bench and watch them go by..with pink hair, rings in their noses and tattoos on the back of their calves..things are real different these days!

I hope you are doing well in these tough times, Tiny.

Good to "hear" from you, Stuart
You were/are a valued member of the "brain trust".
These days, I trust my brain but I cannot trust my dimming memory.

Tim,

Thank you for those kind words, nice to hear from you as well. I was in touch with Ken Brown (GMC) the other day and your name came up..he referred to you as 'one of the good guys' and I heartily agreed.

Turned the commutator, undercut the Mica, growled the armature and put some fiberglass tape on a suspicious brush wire, flipped the copper disc and turned the post to virgin territory.

Every one else seems to be keeping up. At first I thought your were sending us on a snipe hunt. ohwell
