Who was the guy in "Lil Abner"...

>who always went around with a cloud over his head?

I'm beginning to feel like I'm carrying a jinx when it comes to cars and woodturning events.

The engine in my son's truck blew a head gasket a few months ago, just in time to force me to miss TD's gathering and the Southern States Symposium.

Yesterday, I brought my Trooper home from Dick Parr's on the back of a AAA wrecker. You've probably already guessed that it too has a blown headgasket, and me with plans to drive to Louisville on Thursday. The Trooper only has 290,000 miles on it, so I'm more than a little disappointed in the service I've gotten from it. 8^]

Well, doggone it, I'm going anyway. If I have to, I'll drive the S10 pickup with the broken windshield and the window knocked out, but I'm hoping to sweet talk my darlin' into letting me borrow her jeep.

Still planning on seeing you in Louisville,
