Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Here is an old picture from the time that I was about ten. These are fox pelts where I held the fox by the hind legs as my dad skinned them - everyone. One of those was cornered and as it ran by me, I tried to grab it behind the neck and missed, and it bit me on the hand. It made the mistake of holding onto my hand rather than running - its pelt is one of those hanging.

Neat picture! My brother and I always loved red foxes (eastern Tennessee) and I remember their pelts hanging for sale at roadside vendors on old US Hwy 11 when we went on trips in the 1950's. Our parents never bought us one, despite our begging! Now I live in southeastern AZ, and while we have plenty of 'yotes and grey foxes, no beautiful reds--
