Thanks for your responses! I'm slightly embarrassed at my less than subtle attempt to garner encouragement. Can you tell I hit the bottle after my botched engine repair?
Blt: I love your optimism! My husband feels the same way. Of course the life insurance policy he took on me makes him hopeful
Mike you are absolutely right! Can't engage the engine on the Transpac. Mimsy: I feel the same way about manuals and I love your use of the word flummox. I'm stealing it for future use. I also like your little blog and your little angels. Now, that is an accomplishment! Congrats!
