Congratulations, meadbelly!  I wish you best of luck in your new job/endeavor!

Yes.  Yes you should have.  :P

When I was growing up it was common to see gun racks in the back of a pickup window. It wasn't a problem until the crooks got the bright ideal to steal the guns. It's a shame when you can't leave your gun in the rack in the truck and go shopping at the mall for fear it will be stolen.

gun racks i can picture, but if someone told me jarhead had parked in the car park id expect to see some Big Wheels 4x4 motherbitch with bazookas on the roof, a random number of Predator style miniguns around the body, and hanging from the rear view mirror just a cord with a red button that simply said, self destruct

Thanks again, all.

Some quick responses:

Bayonet, if I could do things over again, I'd be thrilled to be doing what you're doing.

Jarhead, I had forgotten how precisely sweet a ride that is.

Gus, LB, others -- I am primarily a business writer and aspiring novelist. Unfortunately, the latter has paid the bills.  :o I use business writer somewhat to differentiate from technical writers (very common around here), but also to capture the breadth of stuff I do.

As far as reviews go, that has definitely been on my mind. Not being paid is the only way to go. I'm under a strict moonlighting clause.  ;D

However, I want to ease myself in. I'm going to start with an aar, but I'm not sure of what yet.

Wow.  That's a damn good question.  I haven't had to try yet.

On the test drive you should have swung by the safe and worked out this issue!

Roger. PM me if you want to chat about some ideas. I'll be glad to give you my email, too.

Congrats, MeadBelly!  Not too much better in this world than someone you know (ok, from the internet, but, still) having something go well for them.
