Yesterday too, but you asked about today....
And, today, well it was like when you hear the glove snap on to the doctor's hand behind you and he says "this may cause a little discomfort.." as I found out what a new heat exchanger and fresh water pump (at 4000 hours, it was their time) and all the accoutrements ("as long as we're in here why don't we go ahead and ____" are going to run.

Still, as the wife likes to say, it's cheaper than psychotherapy!
