Tom, dunno if it's a joke or not: it may simply be indicative of his
motivation.  I'm reminded of Omar Bradley and to that to which he
attributed his success in the military when he stated, "I was always
15 minutes early to every formation".  That, in itself, didn't bring
General Bradley his successes: rather it simply showed an attitude of
preparedness that followed his career and brought about his military
(and social) successes.

Chuck, KE5FI, (if not pulling our leg) is obviously a highly motivated
contester!!!  Lones Wigger, a rifleman that won Gold Medals in several
Olympics, said, "Nobody remembers who came in second"!!!!!

Rod, W5HVV
