Just wanted to tell you Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for sorting the Z for us. I know Dad appreciates your dedication and willingness to see things through completion not just "close enough" see the problem, find the problem, put together a plan to get the problem rectified, see it through. Love Cars, Love People and Love Life - Mr. K Last letter, First love. What comes after Z? Everything. When the Alphabet stops the Adventure begins. Enjoy the ride ;-)
