Seldom if ever did I use the seat part in a kit but today this is good to support a new nose: ;D

(I use these words remembering Mickey Newbury singing "seldom if ever does she cross my mind", maybe in the so beautiful song "I don't think much about her no more", one of my very favorite during my sad years...) :unsure:

I think something interesting is about to happen.

Of shoes and ships
         and sealing wax
      Of cabbages and kings
And why the sea is boiling hot
      And whether pigs have wings."
