On the brightish side, last week's blue funk has dissipated a bit. Now it's more of a teal funk, maybe aquamarine..
And thanks to David, who knows a lot more than me (doesn't everyone? Just ask them......), for his input on the motor problem. I had considered metal bolted to the handle but decided to stay away from the front of the motors because they had to tilt and they had to clear the fuel lines and control cables, which have to move with the motor. It was the tilt that put the kibosh on most of my attempted solutions. That's why many considerations never made it to the experimentation stage.
So enough drivel, I am sure you want to know if I was successful on last week's problem. Oh never mind, you probably don't even remember what it was.
1.) I have a headache.
2.) I need a beer.
