Certainly not Yer Kindly ol' Unka Bart's main concern at least...
Now, for a little list relevance, I got 7 inches of snow in the driveway
this past weekend, but the Syncro had no problem with the 700 feet, up and down
hills, to get from my garage to the street. On the other hand, when we got the
two back-to-back snows of the "Blizzard of '96" (tm), it was defeated by the
first 20 inches. The next 16 inches were also too much, and my fair Frau missed
two radiation treatments while we were snowed in.
Oh yes, several of you nice folks have asked how the Faire Dora is progressing
in her battle against cancer. Thanks, she is suffering (the treatment of chemo
and radiation is, quite simply, brutal) but improving. The treatment *is*
working, and her spirits are very high. She has enjoyed the cards you terrific
folks have sent; and I am forever in your debt. You are an incredible group,
and Yer Kindly ol' Unka Bart loves every one of you!
I'd truly rather give up my right arm, or even my car-toys (yep, including the
"Other" one) if I could spare her what she's going through, but that's just not
in the cards.
Take a moment now and just *appreciate* the fact that there *is* a Quattro list
(thanks, Dan), and *enjoy* the bloody thing in all its diverse glory. Afterall,
there's no escaping meaningless drivel in the rest of life, why would you want
the Q-list to be any different...? Yer Kindly ol' Unka Bart enjoys, nay,
*rejoices* in the diversity (but we all know what a wierd old dude he is...)
