    Frank, still owns the Ferrari? I thought he worked something out with Ferrari and dealer to get rid of it.Smiley

    No we still have it unfortunately. The offer the dealer made was unacceptable, it's for sale currently.

    CGX car nut:

    Watt, Our neighbor still has his King Air after adding a Falcon 900 LX to his stable to replace his Learjet. He said that plane is a longterm keeper.

    He’s right about the King Air.  I mostly travel regionally so I don’t need a jet w low head room, expense, maintenance etc. The King Air is a perfect mix of safety, reliability space and speed.

    We did PT6A-42 engines producing 850 HP each. If you really want to hot rod, you can get 1000 HP each from a Black Hawk upgrade , essentially the engines from a Black Hawk helicopter. $$$$$!

    Eric,

    Please have ChairMan on your side meet ChairMan on my side, who tends to slouch and snooze a bit more than your guy.  Maybe they can meet atop the headwall with uswink

    Your ChairMan looks so content. He surely deserves his rest indecision

    It will be very hard to get them to the top of the headwall. 3 feet of fresh snow and temperature of 5 F is no t-shirt easy walk weather .

    Trying to reach the ridge through a new route at 8500 ft. With 3 ℉, nice crisp carpet. 

     I can see where it overtips to your side. Still some way to go.

    The Crewe is Nordic with Madame, whilst DaDa is grounded - first for another amputation to cut away another bone infection, and then a hip replacement.

    Enjoying the book inflow regardless.  A wonderful FIRST EDITION of Satyrical Works of Titus Petronius Arbiter, printed in 1708, and bound by The French Binders. Just lovely.

    Gaius Petronius Arbiter, AD 27-66 was ARBITER ELEGANTIARUM - the arbiter of elegance for Nero - both of whom were pungent symbols of the seedy downside years of the Roman Empire.

    The Crewe though we had an intruder, they are good watch dogs, but listen and obey and won't harass.

    What wonderful books Watt! Are these difficult to read?
    When I was in my teens, I read some of the original Dutch translations of Conan Doyle's Holmes stories (around 1910). The language was a bit archaic, but still understandable. Reading books from the 1700s might be quite tough!

    On a sidenote, wishing you all the best with the operations mate! May you recover swiftly and be able to go out into the wonderful wilderness again soon!

    Haha!!

    Thanks to all for the good wishes! Not difficult to read - just as your brain clicks after a while when you move from, say, USA to Eire it take a while to comprehend the English spoken - same with getting the rhythm of older written English.

    And body wise:  We're just moving along the bionic spectrum, removing odd bits and adding more Titanium, my favourite metal!!

    My dear friend and role model just arrived in fancy garb - A Zaehnsdorf binding, with illustrations by the famous George  Cruikshank:

    Those illustrations are just fabulous.  One forgets how much work was involved is creating visuals for books in days gone by.

    Design wise, they're optimised to look groovy, as opposed to cut fog, but maybe they'll cut dealer BSangry
    BTW, I can just envision filling those 3 cooler openings in the bumper completely with snow... hey, they should offer a snow blower attachment!smiley
