PL NOTES McQueen Part 1
10:35 and generally got the best of it, you say not

I'll have to remember this line: You need new stay-bolts on your dome cover!”

Your file length is 17:05
15:55 would be a good breaking point. right before 'Hold on a minute, Mac"
You could easily add that to Part 2 which has a minute or more space to carry the extra time.

Part 2
12:33 he talked coal, you say they
you could shave about 2 seconds of silence off the end of the file.

Many thinks for the quick turn-around.
I'll tend to the discrepancies you've noted later this morning after a scheduled phone call coming up soon.

Well, thought I'd get in on this collection with a selection on philately, but I see we already have several contributions on this, so here is something from one of my other hobbies:

Might napping be considered a hobby? I would like to find a nice essay about how I spend my free time.

PL Notes McQueen Part 1
This file ends abruptly: "Swing himself into his cab Part 1 of 2.
It should end
"swing himself into his cab." . . . . . End of McQueen's Hobby, Part 1 of 2

PL Notes McQueen Part 2
:27 “Hold on a minute, Mac,” Noonan cried, you say "RIGHT!, Noonan cried.", a line which appears further down in the text.
1:31 you say "end of McQueen's Hobby", jut before "Right, McQueen fairly yelled"

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." --Edward Hickson's "Moral Song".
or perhaps it was Robert the Bruce
I thought it was a girl scout motto, because my troop leader always said it. :roll:

These SNAFUs are probably from having nipped off the last few minutes from Part 1 and sticking them onto Part 2 per your suggestion. Sorry.

Meditative napping, perhaps. Or, tricks how to make yourself fall asleep and stay asleep. I could use that! :P

I thought you would know enough by now to snip the text out and leave the outro in place! :roll:
