My brother Noodles is getting into Phoenix tonight. Hopefully, the air conditioning will be working and he won't melt when he gets into our house.
On the other hand, he claims he wants to live in the desert, so this'll be a good trial run for him.
Regarding the totally decent people I've never met, one of the UTMCers (Gumby) took it upon himself to call around to junkyards looking for the part I need. He may have found one for me (waiting to hear back from the junkyard.). That goes beyond decent into "whattaguy" territory. When I finally get up to Colorado, I hope I get a chance to meet this fella.
