Comments: My sixth Phone SS and consecutive Clean Sweep.  Another
          personal best in this event.  Never checked 160m but
          later learned there was activity on Top Band, meaning I
          missed some points.  20m was a disappointment for me, 
          as I was about 153 Qs from my goal.  Anxiety about 
          working NL (which I missed in CW) quickly diminished
          when VO1IMB called me in first 3 hours.  Last two were
          AK and NWT.  Worked 2 AK back to back and then VY1JA
          for another Sweep @ 2153z Sunday (TU).  If there was an 
          award for "Most Polite Op" I'd nominate KG2MR.  The 75m
          Pig Farmers were out for mud.  I put on my boots and
          rolled up my sleeves.  "These boots are made for
          walkin' and that's just what they'll do; one of these
          days these boots are gonna. . ."  There was one guy, in
          particular, who was really slingin' the slop at me who
          identified himself but wouldn't complete the exchange,
          who said to me, "I feel like a used whore."  I did NOT
          think it was funny at the time.  I miss CW already.
          Hey, I'm only human.  "I really looove you man."  GN
