Sorry bout the time in responding, seems like theres never enough time for
all of lifes needs! :0)
Summer, but one class ONLY. Granted, it's a year's worth of French in eight
weeks, but... <G>

They go up against the standing wing. You'd only need to have a couple of

Should I have two holes on that same angle?, one set on either side of the

COOL !! I will begin searching for some appropriate shoelace asap.

Powder coating would be greatly preferable. Most people just don't have
