Dear Folks,

     I was ready to go at 4:05am and the truck would not start!  Very annoying!  Oliver tried several things, but no go.  So I will not be able to be at the DOT market today nor will I be able to get the CSA boxes to the folks at Gangplank and DOT.  I am so sorry for the inconvenience.

We will make it up as we go.  Let me know if you would like to pick up later in the week.  We are in Columbia, MD on Thursday and Alexandria, VA on Thursday and Saturday.  And also in Fairfax, VA  on Saturday.

 

Otherwise I will see everyone next week.

Oliver thinks it may be the starter.
