...If you know what I mean. And I already know there's likely to be a problem with the primary repeating indicator for phlogiston levels; there's another one across the very same main line that does work, but its output cannot be thrown on the same kinetographic linkage as the one that's on the blink. So I may have to uncouple it, read the old gauges and run the thing by hand.
Not that there's anything wrong with that, except I cannot hear the sounder from the command staff in the gallery unless I leave the engine-room door open, which the throttlemen do not like. But they'd like running aground a good deal less, so there is that.
I certainly hope there's coffee on.
(In related news, a bit of chorizo sausage works well cooked in with corned beef hash and eggs [and onion and green pepper] but it does raise the question: why not just skip the canned hassh, dice a potato, and fry it up with four times as much chorizo? No reason, of course. I'm going to have to try that.)
