Onerascal1: RUMOR/Take it as u will.
To start i want to thank Tony and his TNT family for what they do. Tony, I BELIEVE because of you, and i have learned a lot in this short amount of time i've been on this ride. My respect to you for your service to this country, and respect to you for helping us thru this.
We need more people in this world like you. This is a blessing to all of us.
You once said that if we knew what we didn't want to know, we would'nt want to know it.
I worked in the oil fields for many years and a little time at Ratheon msd. More times than any the bigger the project the more complications there were.
IF you know anything about blueprints, strict tolerences and measurements working in a manufac/supply bus, 1 part might have 20/30 revisions before it was right and that part might consist of over a hundred different parts, each having to work together overall. One problem affects the whole workings.

Whether it be building a blowout preventer for offshore rigs or the circuit boards for military control panels, we kept working it and testing it until it was right, and even then it was something as simple as a signature from QC holding it up from being delivered to somewhere else way past the time it was due.
At Raytheon we had govt contracts with deadlines. If they were not met someone paid. Some cases it was a rig down,( back then a million a day for every day it was not pumping). Point is there are a lot of people involved working to make it work the way it was designed.
Be patient and it will happen.
Now for the Rumor,,, I have a cousin who i would give my life for. She was a teacher, the kind of teacher who you would want to let your kids be around. TEACHERS GET USED!! Tony and her are in the category together, compassionate and giving of themselves. She has a gift of being able to connect with kids.
Anyway we are good for phone talks of 4 5 6 hrs at a time and all night long talks when i visit. Last night on the phone she was taking care of her son and trying to hold a conversation with me. In her last few words before saying she had to go she started rambling about the current rates.
I had to stop her to get the story about the statement.
A good friend of hers works in a bank and has seen the rates posted, ( this is in Oklahoma) I asked her to clarify this and SHE, told ME, the rates,,,, and guess what ?? Same as what tony has told us....... I had to make sure i got the story straight.
So let’s all be patient while they work the bugs out. I don’t want this Challenger ride to explode because of one little thing going wrong.
We are almost there. We’re circling the airport waiting for runway authorization. I think i just saw OKIE off in the distance circling. Tony and the mods are captain and attendants for us on this flight.
Put you trays and seatback in the upright positions and buckle up for the landing and let them land this plane the best they know how.
Im ready to get off this ride and taste so real food... I hope that puts a little more frosting on the cake..
