his house in my little white truck but he was washing off his
beautiful 196? Buick Wildcat for me to follow him to the mechanic in.
The thing is a giant, 18 feet long & 6 feet wide, with some kind

hands, and deep breathy motor in front of me, I must admit to feeling

It was Val's 50'th birthday (though I have a hard time believing it)

and all we have to do is set the electric motor so it knows when to
stop rolling out and in.
We only do this kind of installation a few times a year, and I always

take apart the switch. Of course we have no idea about electrical
work, my feeling is that anything invisible that can kill me is better
left to sweaty guys with low waistbands and their proteges.
