I have decided that time is not of the essence here. A couple of days after arriving here in Montana, I went to the post office to get the key to my mail box. I was told that "Phil" had taken off early for the week, and wouldn't be back until Monday. ( WE ARE TALKING THE U.S. POST OFFICE HERE!!!) So, I had to be patient in getting my mail.
A couple of weeks ago I needed a plumber. So, THE plumber said he could come out to fix some of my pipes. ( Woo hooo, that's great... oh not so fast) He isn't taking any more jobs until after hunting vacation.
