    no worries now Tom. Β I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t be driving this rig in a matter of months now!!! Β No more years waiting.

    I hope to see Doug today…Β  Notice I didn’t say I knew I would see Doug…. I hope….Β  😎 😎  Come on Doug. Get us through this last one.. I don’t have any complicated interior stuff on the plate after this…… so that’s good…. 😎  Β I don’t see anyone out there that could replace him, right now, today…Β  But, I guess you could say the same about Franz and Pat too…. 😎  I don’t see anyone dying to take our places….
