    No issue. My inner grammar nazi took over the keyboard for a minute. Just trying to edjumacate my bretheren a bit.

    Other than stuck on the slope for an unscheduled double hitch, I'm well. Looking forward to my 5 days off....

    Know what you mean. Though no where near the best speller in AK, there are others that just make me want to cry. IE: a "stock" is another name for livestock, a soup additive or a handle for your gun. It has nothing to do with sneaking up on a critter. The word you want is "stalk".

    Maybe in the intrest of education, this thread should be a sticky.

    ps - Erik - skipping the meds for one day won't hurt you, just don't make a habit of it.
