Was thinking of you, Sniper, VV, Snohare the other day....heard a really sneaky pun and missed those old days here.
Sorry to hear you are stuck in second gear. Always looking on the bright side of life I see. Yup...nasty little buggers, but at least they are cheap and I know what they are going to do! That was always my feeling on pred. I stop in sporadically...hope you keep an update so we know how you are doing.
