picked up the 550 from FoNE storage. they did some fluid services and cleaned her up purty, and she's ready to roll for another 9-10 months --- hopefully, fingers crossed, knock-wood, please pretty please! --- until the snows encroach once again. my left foot is confused. it spent the winter doing no work. i think it's trying to organize the toes to go out on strike - it apparently liked vacation. i'll have to call in those grocery store guys to negotiate for me.... doody.
