Thanks to everyone.

Dad had a brain disease that first hit showed up 1977 with gran mal seizures, and he dodged the bullet several times: prostate cancer, broken hip, numerous brain biopsies, at least two strokes... Anyway, his health had been really declining in the last five years. I'm fortunate to have had him around for this long, and made my peace with him. We don't all get that chance. It's been hardest on my kids and my niece. Though they have experienced the passing of relatives before, they're all in their twenties now, and he's been there with love and support all of their lives.

We've had lots of time to prepare, but it doesn't hurt any less. He's confounded the doctors by living longer than they expected with the disease they thought he had... so they're doing a thorough autopsy at Stanford to learn more.

Thanks again for the kind words.

While staying in Durango, even though it was late january I saw a few sprinkler corner cutters. At the Comfort Inn we stayed at, where there wasn't snow, I saw ALL rotors sticking up 3"-4" above grade. At our launch field which is in a housing development with homes starting at about $750k, I saw many rotors, sprays and impacts (not the cans but just the impact portion) up on risers 2'-4'.

That rock will hold that riser in place just fine.
