    Find someone with small fingers?

    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    I'll look at mine when I get home Larry and see if I get any ideas.

    Later that day . . . . .

    OK, I just press my thumb on it and twist. It only goes about 1/8 of a turn (or less). Tap the back off into your hand. That's how mine is anyway ;-)

    I typically talk to these sort of delimas/ small parts in Simpson language. No not Jessica Simpson language...Homer Simpson language...

    "Why you little...." followed by the grabbing of the part and shaking it hard like Homer does to Bart
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
