Thanks, fellas. Kind of a big one at 75. But my Dad made it to 101, so I have a record to beat.
I like the line from the movie Galaxy Quest: Never give up. Never surrender.

Carter-Davis is the only place Duck and I have used for years. It too is a one man shop, but Bert is very knowledgeable (Gene Carter trained) and will treat you right. I've never heard a complaint.
