Lisa Update

Mere moments after I posted my last message. Lisa called me. As usual, before I could actually answer the call, it rolled to voice-mail. (As far as I can tell, I have about one ring to answer calls on this phone before voice-mail. Sometimes it's zero rings. From experimentation, I've also found that callers can end up hearing three or four rings on their end before my phone rings. But I digress.) She left me a message.

At her request, I'm posting Lisa's progress so far.

She continues to have problems with fuel from the starboard tank, but is otherwise making good progress. In case the starboard tank quits feeding entirely, she says she's going to buy a siphon hose so she can siphon fuel out of that tank to move over to the other one at need.

She also pointed out that she used her last quarters (cheaper than using the phone card, which she reserves for use only when coins aren't accepted) to call me instead of using them to play the Creature from the Black Lagoon pinball machine at the truck stop, and that I should be duly grateful.
