I did about 11.5 miles on foot today in Brooklyn and Manhattan. I wonder if that offsets the burger and shake?

I'm tempted to keep this as a souvenir. Cost = one cheeseburger. I wouldn't.

Thanks Matt, no problem.  It's not your issue to solve, I do appreciate it.  Funny thing is... I just got a message from Amazon 2 minutes ago.  Apparently there is a delivery day between May 15 and June 11 now.  This is kinda link when you can't get a circuit to work and then you call over some help, and miraculously, the problem disappears.  Make you look a bit foolish... LOL  :)  Have a good day!

This reminds me of time with adventurous kids. Although they weren't powered. My sons ( 8&9 years old) used to make awesome zeppelins from helium balloons and plastic banana split trays with sugar packet ballast at our local Country Buffet.
