Mike,

Your cylinder has been honed and it cleaned up nicely. Will give it a bath in nice hot soapy water and oil it down. Just waiting for the head parts now.

That's good for me. I live right there in the neighborhood behind the Brewster's. I have a feeling Michhub won't be joining us. He isn't a morning person.

I hope VCU's Board of Directors feels like they are getting their $1.75 MILLION/yr out of Mr. Smart! Too bad they didn't make it as exciting as last year.

Be safe today guys, I wish I could go...I will be able to go soon!

Guy, how's your father in law doing? I'll keep him and your wife in my prayers.

Eddy, thanks for asking.

He did make it through Friday night, and my wife went back up there yesterday morning at 6:30. Of course, she's now dealing with the w/e staff at the hospital and having to work through all of that. They think his kidneys and other organs are shutting down and talking about hospice care at this point. She's looking into that now.

She's staying at my older daughter's again and will be back at the hospital tomorrow morning to consider their next move. She'll stay up there until whatever happens, or until she feels that her presence isn't immediately needed.
