YOU WANT TO HEAR SWEARING-THEN TURN YOUR EARS TO CINCINSHITTY OHIO AND GIVE A LISTEN....IT SOUNDED LIKE A GRUNT-THEN A GRUNT-THEN ANOTHER GRUNT----THEN NOTHING BUT SILENCE.....SO I JUMP DOWN AND OPEN THE BATTERY DOOR AND PULL OFF THE RUBBER SNUBBERS AND LIFT OFF THE PLASTIC BATTERY BOX COVER....LOW AND BEHOLD THERE IS A WHITE GROWTH OVER ALL THE BATTERY TERMINALS ON ALL 4 BATTERIES-WHICH CAUSED ME TO SAY MY FAVORITE WORDS IN REVERSE.....LIGHTENING STRUCK A NEAR BY TREE REMINDING ME TO WATCH MY LANGUAGE! SO OFF TO THE GARAGE FOR WIRE BRUSH BATTERY PLIERS AND SOME BATTERY GOOP....AN HOUR LATER AFTER A 400 AMP JUMP AND HAND WASHING....I ROLLED THE IGNITION KEY OVER AND ALL WAS WELL-IT STARTED MAKING NOISES LIKE A FAT WOMAN IN A COOKIE STORE....ALL WAS WELL!....CHECKED THE GAUGES AND THEY SHOWED NORMAL-WITH A LOW VOLTAGE READING WHICH CHANGES AFTER A HOUR ON THE ROAD TO 13.6 AND THEN ON TO 13.9 WHERE IT NORMALLY SITS WITH THE LIGHTS OFF.....ALL IS WELL IN CINCY NOW AND THE CURSE OF NO START HAS PASSED. NOW TO TAKE THE AFTERNOON NAP AFTER A SHOWER AND A CHANGE OF CLOTHES......GEOFKAYE AND THE RIVERCITY GROUP-SURE MAKES FOR A GREAT SUNDAY.......
